One of my favorite benefits of being involved with the State Bar of Texas Bankruptcy Law Section is the opportunity it provides me to meet and get to know attorneys and judges from across Texas and beyond who I would never have the chance to meet otherwise. While I do enjoy the opportunity to interact with many fantastic consumer bankruptcy practitioners and judges in the Austin area, I would normally not have the opportunity to get to know a corporate bankruptcy attorney in Dallas, a creditor’s attorney in Laredo, a bankruptcy judge in Tyler, a restructuring advisor in Houston, or a trustee from El Paso.

The best opportunity for this type of interaction is coming up quickly – our statewide Bankruptcy Bench Bar Conference is taking place at the Fairmont Austin, a beautiful hotel located in downtown Austin, from Wednesday, April 17th through Friday, April 19th. Attorneys, judges, and non-attorney professionals from across Texas will come together not only to enjoy a diverse array of bankruptcy CLE topics, but also to network and relax with nine holes of golf, luxury spa treatments, and several social events. The opening reception, to be held Wednesday evening at Rules & Regs on the 7th floor of the Fairmont, will be spectacular at sunset, and the YLC-sponsored party on Thursday evening at Antone’s, one of Austin’s legendary music venues, should not be missed.

In addition to all of these great opportunities, there will be a chance on Thursday afternoon for groups that don’t normally have the ability to easily gather to meet during the conference – including a presentation for the Woman’s Initiative by Monica Blacker, and a meeting of Inns of Court from across the State.

I personally hope you can join us at this fantastic conference.  Please consider becoming more involved with the Section as well. We will keep you posted as to other events being held this year, including pro bono opportunities, webinars, and other upcoming projects, through the Section’s website. And we look forward to continuing the support of bankruptcy attorneys and professionals through the Section’s work.
