An Invitation from the NCBJ President

The Hyatt Regency Downtown is a short distance from Seattle-Tacoma Airport. Seattle is known as the “The Emerald City” because the city and surrounding areas are filled with greenery all year round, even in the winter due to all the evergreen trees in the area. Emerald City also echoes Washington State’s nickname as The Evergreen State.

Please join us September 18-20 for the 2024 National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges Annual Meeting at the Hyatt Regency Downtown Seattle. We are looking forward to the largest gathering of the insolvency community for networking, education and fun!

Eat out in Seattle and experience unique restaurants. Registered attendees can sign up for one of our many “Dine-Arounds” to enjoy a special meal with colleagues. Watch your inbox this summer for information on special activities.

This year’s Conference is designed to provide a variety of high-quality educational programs for experienced and less experienced professionals alike. Judges will enjoy the chance to socialize with each other and members of the bar in informal discussions and plenary sessions. The Education Committee has planned engaging, insightful, and cutting-edge programs. As usual, the Conference will provide opportunities to hear judges, academics and professionals address compelling issues that we are all likely to encounter in the future. Something of interest and importance awaits everyone.

Attendees will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in first-class programs sponsored by our affiliate friends, the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI), the American Bar Association (ABA), the Association of Insolvency & Restructuring Advisors (AIRA), the Commercial Law League of America (CLLA), plus the pre-conference International Women’s Insolvency & Restructuring Confederation (IWIRC) and American College of Bankruptcy (ACB) sessions. This is truly the preeminent conference to renew acquaintances, establish new relationships, and further your insolvency acumen.

We look forward to seeing you in Seattle and embracing this wonderful opportunity to be together with the insolvency community.

Hon. Cynthia A. Norton
Western District of Missouri
