Headed to ABI

This week I, along with many other of fellow TMA members, are headed to the American Bankruptcy Institute's (ABI) 29th Annual Spring Meeting at the Gaylord National Hotel and Convention Center in National Harbor, Md. A number of our members also will be speaking at the conference.

On Saturday morning (April 2), 8:00 a.m. - 9:30 a.m., TMA President Mark Indelicato, will participate in a panel entitled "Business Reorganization, Court Administration and Alternative Dispute Resolution." Mark will provide his insights into business reorganization and the use of alternative dispute resolution in connection with bankruptcy reorganization plans.

Also on Saturday, 9:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m., Bill Lenhart, 2010 TMA Audit Committee chair and long time director, will participate in a panel entitled "Chapter 11 Creditors’ Committees and Examiners: Are They Effective?" Bill will join three other panelists providing their insight into the role of Chapter 11 committees and examiners and the role they play in aiding the reorganization process.

These panels are part of a number of joint efforts between TMA and ABI to improve our program offerings to members during these challenging times. We very much appreciated ABI hosting us and we look forward to reciprocating by hosting an ABI-sponsored panel at the 2011 TMA Annual Convention this October in San Diego.

We hope you are able to join us!
