The Trustees’ Education Network (TEN) provides far too many valuable resources for debtors, creditors, and counsel alike for us to list them all here. Instead, Chapter Thirteen Trustee Debbie Langehennig has provided the quick links and resource summaries below as brief highlights of the kinds of materials available at the TEN web site.
