NACBA 2014 Convention in New York City


The National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) 2014 Annual Convention is being held in New York.  This is the 22nd annual convention for the organization, and they are "pulling out all the stops" for this one, as this is the first year it is being held in New York. 

For a while, they were keeping it quiet as to what hotel it would be held at while they were negotiating for a room block.  Now their web site has made it official; it will be held at the New York City Hilton Midtown from April 10-13, 2014, and the room rates are expected to be $279.00 per night when the room block opens later this winter.  This rate is good for three days before and after the event.  I know this might sound high, but for New York Midtown, this is really a good rate.

I expect the 10th of April (the first day) to be a group activities event day.  So, if you think you might want to participate in the group activity, you might want to show up a day early.  If you are simply there for the CLE, then showing up on the April 10th should be fine.

The Convention, with five plenary sessions, 20 breakout sessions, and roundtable discussions will cover some of today’s hottest bankruptcy topics.

Arrangements for things like pre-convention group activities, speakers, and other event related activities are still being finalized.  As I receive more information about the event, I will try to post it.
