The NCBJ is navigating back to San Diego for the 2020 annual conference October 14 - 17th. I invite you “Sail Forward" with us, as the NCBJ looks at the next 40 years, and beyond.
At the 2019 conference, the NCBJ looked back at how the Bankruptcy Code has developed over the last forty years. In San Diego, we will explore the future – both what we already know and what we anticipate. Attendees can examine the SBRA’s future by through the lens of its first nine months, listen to “Titans of Private Equity" talk about how they see bankruptcy cases evolving, take a close look at shadow banking and its impact on business and consumer bankruptcy cases, and consider the predictions of economic forecasters about the kinds of bankruptcy cases that are likely to come. And this is just a sampling of the excellent education programming being developed.
The NCBJ Annual Conference delivers social and structured networking with insolvency professionals from North America and beyond. The ABA, ABI, CLLA, ACB, IWIRC, AIRA and FBA activities enhance the gathering with their education sessions, meetings and social events. Of course, the NCBJ also gives attendees the opportunity to share their thoughts with bankruptcy judges – informally or during one of our several programs.
Continuing in its mission to make a difference in the host city, the NCBJ, in coordination with IWIRC, the ACB and the ABI, will be offering community service opportunities during the annual meeting. Click on the community service icon on NCBJmeeting.org for details.
Of course, the City of San Diego and its surrounds have so much to offer. Take a look at the San Diego icon on NCBJmeeting.org for some ideas from the "locals".
And the piece de resistance of the San Diego meeting will be the First Annual (and maybe the only ever. . .) NCBJ Sail the Bay Regatta. On Saturday afternoon, immediately following the end of the education sessions, jump on a bus to the docks, meet your boat’s Captain, raise the sails and race with crew members against a dozen other 26 footers to become NCBJ Champion of the Bay. Don’t have a team – no problem. We will have a boat for independent pirates! For those who prefer more genteel Sailing & Spirits – that’s Friday afternoon on the 139 foot racing schooner, America, a replica of the 1851 vessel after which the “America’s Cup" race was named.
So don’t miss out. Come to San Diego, America’s finest city, for America’s finest insolvency conference. See you there.
