Bankruptcy Professionals Encouraged to Attend and Submit Testimony for ABIs Chapter 11 Reform Commission Fall Hearings

Alexandria, Va. —Bankruptcy practitioners and scholars are invited to attend and participate in the fall public hearings for the American Bankruptcy Institute's (ABI) Commission to Study the Reform of Chapter 11. The hearings are scheduled to take place at major insolvency conferences, where interested members of the restructuring community can appear and provide testimony to the Commission or to one or more of its advisory committees. Hearings will be held at the National Conference of Bankruptcy Judges annual meeting in San Diego on October 26, the Turnaround Management Association annual convention in Boston on November 3 and the Commercial Finance Association annual meeting in Phoenix on November 15. Other public hearing dates will be announced. Those interested in testifying at any of the fall hearings should contact ABI Executive Director Sam Gerdano at sgerdano@abiworld.org. The purpose of ABI’s Commission to Study the Reform of Chapter 11 will be to propose fixes to the Bankruptcy Code that will better balance the goals of effectuating the effective reorganization of business debtors—with the attendant preservation and expansion of jobs—and the maximization and realization of asset values for all creditors and stakeholders. The work of the Commission is expected to take two years.
