Bankruptcy training conference set.

The Association of Bankruptcy Judicial Assistants plans a bankruptcy training conference, seminar, and examination June 18-20 in New Orleans.

ABJA is a national organization created to encourage the highest standard of conduct and educate its members. Secretaries/ judicial assistants holding appointments by United States bankruptcy judges are eligible for membership in the ABJA. Additionally, certified bankruptcy assistants are eligible for associate membership in the ABJA.

"One of the primary objectives of the ABJA has been the development of educational programs for our members and the bankruptcy legal community," according to the organization. "Understanding that certification in a particular field can promote and maintain professional standards, our Continuing Legal Education Committee developed and modified, for non-lawyer persons, a 'Bankruptcy Certification Program'... to enable secretaries/assistants, paralegals, and individuals in the legal profession to keep pace with new developments and will be an effective quality improvement mechanism for employers."

The midyear ABJA Bankruptcy Certification Program will begin at 8 a.m. on Thursday June 19, at the Hotel Monteleone, 214 Rue Royale Street, in New Orleans. The seminar fee for this two-day program is $125 and includes a "Meet the Speakers Reception" on Wednesday evening, breakfast and break refreshments on Thursday and Friday, and all program materials.

The certified bankruptcy assistant examination fee is $99. A study guide is available for $25. This study guide includes a review of materials to be presented and a sample examination. The CBA registration deadline is May 19.

A block of rooms is being held at the Hotel Monteleone (800) 217-2033. To take advantage of the special rate of $89 per night, reservations must be made no later than May 19. To obtain the special group rate, advise the reservationist that you will be attending the Certified Bankruptcy Assistant Seminar and Examination.
