February 2017 – Member Appreciation Week
It’s time to renew your NCBC Membership! We are thankful for the support of our members and hope that you have renewed by January 27, 2017 so you are eligible to fully participate in the Member Appreciation Week (MAW) activities the week of February 6-10, 2017. A big THANK YOU to Sabrina Palacio-Garcia, the Membership Committee, Circuit Liaisons and Local Representatives for all the hard work in planning the MAW events. If a colleague is not a NCBC member, now is the time to encourage them to join!
April 2017 – Human Resources Forum
In response to last year’s member survey Question 8 “What professional development information would you like to see NCBC provide?” there were many responses about training opportunities other than the annual education conference. We heard you loud and clear! I am excited to announce that the NCBC is partnering with the Tennessee Western Bankruptcy Court to co-sponsor the Human Resources Forum the week of April 24 in Chicago. Information about this training opportunity has been sent to the clerks and HR contacts at the courts. Hopefully many of you can participate in this program. We hope to have other training opportunities in the future that focus on other areas of professional development.
July 2017 – Annual Education Conference
The District of Colorado Bankruptcy Court, led by NCBC Past-President Ken Gardner, are busy planning this summer’s education conference. The NCBC Board and staff will meet in Denver the first week of February for its mid-year business meeting. There will be much more information about the conference in the next issue of Impact so stay tuned!
Mary Schott – NCBC Treasurer
At the end of November, it was announced that Mary Schott, Clerk of Court, District of Nevada, was approved as the new treasurer for NCBC. Mary assumed this new role upon the retirement of Ken Hirz. Want to know more about Mary? Read “There’s Something About Mary” in this edition of Impact!
I look forward to seeing many of you at the HR Forum and, soon after, in Denver for the 2017 Education Conference! The NCBC is here for its members – let us know what you think!
