Welcome to the 2019 NCBJ Washington D.C’s Annual Conference Blog. A good place to start is the message from the NCBJ President John E. Waites (Bankr. D.S.C.) welcoming you to the Blog and to join us at the Conference (you can find the message HERE). Judge Waites and his team have been working hard to put on a conference that will be both educational and entertaining.
The Conference is a great place to learn, network, and have fun. It uniquely provides a forum for a wide variety of bankruptcy and insolvency organizations. Bankruptcy Judge Michelle Harner, D. Md. is this year’s NCBJ education chair.
You will find on the Blog many interesting articles about educational and other programs offered at the Conference, including an ABLJ symposium presented in the form of a mock Senate judiciary committee meeting with mock senators presiding (HERE); a broken bench program highlighting the Bankruptcy Code’s 40-year history presented by a star studded cast of bankruptcy judges, leading lawyers, and prominent academics (HERE); the eight workshops presented by the ABI (HERE); the Blackshear Fellowship Program that promotes diversity in the bankruptcy practice (HERE), and even morning Yoga (HERE) and Zumba© (HERE) classes. Additional posts will be made from time to time about other programs, including the Fireside Chat with Chief Justice Gorsuch.
Because there are so many interesting things to do in Washington D.C., the Blog will contain a number of posts about the host City. Don’t miss Bankruptcy Judge Martin Teel’s (D.D.C.) local guide to Washington D.C. (HERE). Many of the articles about Washington D.C.’s venues honoring individuals or events not only contain information about the venue but also discuss the life and accomplishments of the person who is honored or the history of the commemorated event.
I hope you find these and other articles interesting and informative. Keep checking back to the Blog to read more posts.
