Bench-Bar Bankruptcy Conference Facilitates Networking with Ambassador Program

The 23rd Annual Bankruptcy Bench Bar Conference is fast approaching.  Section Co-Chairs John T. Morrier of Casner & Edwards, LLP and Jeanne P. Darcey of Sullivan & Worcester LLP have organized a spectacular program -- addressing secured creditor issues, updates to issues surrounding Stern v. Marshall, and the latest guidance on  attorney-client privilege. The conference, Massachusetts’ largest bankruptcy event of the year, will be held on May 30th at the Taj Boston (15 Arlington Street) overlooking the beautiful Boston Public Gardens.  The educational program commences at 3:00 p.m. and upon its conclusion at 6:00 p.m. members will assemble to enjoy a cocktail reception and light supper buffet with ample opportunity for bench-bar networking. Click here to register or to learn more about the 23rd Annual Bankruptcy Bench Bar Conference.

In addition to offering a 50% discount on the registration price for all attorneys who are first-time attendees of the conference, the Bankruptcy Section is pleased to welcome these first-time attendees, new attorneys and law students to network with senior members of the Section through the Bankruptcy Section Ambassador Program.  All law students, first-time attendees, and new lawyers who register in advance for the Bankruptcy Bench Bar Conference will be invited to participate.

In its second year, the Ambassador Program takes some of the “work” out of networking by facilitating the introduction of newer BBA members and conference participants to an established practitioner and BBA Bankruptcy Section Member a/k/a an “Ambassador”.

Each participant gets paired with a Section Ambassador and will attend a special pre-program meet and greet reception during Conference registration.  Bankruptcy Section Membership Committee Co-Chairs Meg McKenzie Feist of Choate Hall & Stewart LLP and Natalie Sawyer of Murphy & King, P.C. look forward to offering this program to newer attorneys in an effort to help them make that initial breakthrough with a potential mentor.  Ms. McKenzie Feist describes the Ambassador Program as “a unique opportunity for new Bankruptcy practitioners to gain a professional ally outside their firm or organization.” 

If you are a Bankruptcy Section member interested in serving as an Ambassador, please contact the CLE Program Manager, Kristen Scioli White at
