Welcome to San Francisco, home of the Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, Alcatraz Island, museums, Muir Woods National Monument, City Lights Bookstore, Nob Hill, and of course fabulous food and wine. It is only 56 miles to wine country. Most importantly San Francisco is the site of the National Association of Chapter 13 Trustees’ (“NACTT”) 57th Annual Seminar at the Marriott Marquis, July 6 – 9, 2022. This will be the first fully live annual NACTT seminar since 2019 so make your plans now to attend the premier consumer bankruptcy educational seminar and to see colleagues we have all missed for the last few years.
This year’s program is outstanding and filled with a wide range of relevant, current and hot topics of interest to consumer bankruptcy professionals. The plenary sessions include: a discussion by bankruptcy judges – Enforcement of Court Orders and Rules: Does Contempt Power Exist in the Bankruptcy Court?; a discussion by the one and only Professor Nancy B. Rapoport – Ethical Implications of Remote Lawyering Post-Pandemic; a discussion as to the future of virtual court hearings – Virtual Court Hearings: Maximizing the Benefits and Avoiding the Pitfalls; a discussion on appreciating assets – Windfalls – Who Gets Postpetition Property or Appreciated Values?; a discussion on conditional dismissals – Dismissals with Prejudice – When Appropriate and What Conditions Apply?; a discussion on the continuing student loan problem – Student Loans – Where is Litigation Headed and What is Happening in the Department of Education?; a discussion on the Kinney decision – No Cure After 60 Months – Judicial Splits on Debtor’s Ability to Cure After Plan Term Expires; a discussion on issues that arise when converting a case – Conversion from Chapter 7 to 13 – Issues to be Considered Before Conversion; and a discussion on what we all want to know – The Future of Consumer Bankruptcy. In addition to the plenary sessions there will be breakout sessions led by talented speakers on topics such as: mortgage issues; claims secured by personal property; abusive lending issues; “Equality of Access in Bankruptcy;” CFPB issues; and technology trends. There will also be sessions just for trustee staff. Last, but not least, the conference will end with the never to be missed and always entertaining – “Chapter 13 Case Law Update” with the Honorable Keith M. Lundin, Henry E. Hildebrand, and Tara Twomey.
The San Francisco conference will provide networking opportunities for sharing suggestions for improvements to consumer bankruptcy laws and procedures. The conference will provide excellent educational sessions and also allows you to take advantage of the amazing sites in San Francisco. Remember, Friday afternoon is free so enjoy the sites, food and California wines. If you enjoy the outdoors, be sure to see the Golden Gate Bridge (and perhaps see it via a cruise); explore the Muir Woods; enjoy the sunset on a catamaran cruise; explore the vineyards and wineries of Napa; a drive along Highway 1 coastline; or enjoy the many parks of San Francisco. If you enjoy history and museums,be sure to see Alcatraz; Legion of Honor; de Young Museum; Contemporary Jewish Museum; Museum of African Diaspora; the Beat Museum; Children’s Creativity Museum; and so many more. And of course, if you want to enjoy the city as a whole you may want to take the trolley around town to see such sites as: Nob Hill; Chinatown; Fisherman’s Wharf, or Pier 39.
The NACTT strives to be a nationwide leader in consumer bankruptcy law education and the 2022 annual seminar presents many opportunities to improve your knowledge and expertise. The NACTT, the Academy and program planners have compiled an excellent panel of speakers from across the country. The social events will provide an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and friends.
SEE YOU IN SAN FRANCISCO!
