Please accept my declaration of candidacy for the National Conference of Bankruptcy Clerks Board of Governors position. I joined the National Conference of Bankruptcy Clerks in 2005, and have remained a contributing member ever since. As a former Board member serving from 2010 through 2013, I successfully collaborated with the Board and bankruptcy clerks to provide education, sustain membership, and provide scholarships. During my tenure, I served as chairman of the NCBC Conference Education Committee, and coordinated bankruptcy-specific training programs for conferences held in New Orleans and San Francisco. I also served as Membership Committee Chairman, and through creative efforts, worked with circuit liaisons to provide membership building resources at the local level. Additionally, I worked on the Scholarship Committee, and assisted with the creation of scholarship procedures and assessment guidelines. I am confident in my ability to make a smooth transition, not simply because of previous Board experience, but because I am creative, committed, and have obtained progressive leadership skills as a Supervisor, Deputy Clerk in Charge and Chief Deputy Clerk for the Ohio Northern Bankruptcy Court. I would greatly appreciate your vote, and welcome an opportunity to meet the professional needs of NCBC members.
I am honored to submit my name in nomination for the position of Secretary of the National Conference of Bankruptcy Clerks. I have been a member of NCBC since 2006. I previously served on the Board of Governors 2011-2013 and was appointed by the board to fill the position of Secretary for the remainder of the 2013-2015 term of my predecessor. I have served as Chair and/or Co-Chair of the following NCBC Committees: Awards/Scholarship Committee for 2011-2013 and Education Committee 2015. I have also served on the Awards, Mentorship and Website Committees, starting in 2009 for the Awards and Mentorship Committee and Website Committee since 2012. I am a 2012 graduate of the Michigan State University Judicial Administration Certificate program. I have been with the Bankruptcy Court in Massachusetts for close to 27 years. I started out as an Intake Clerk, then moved to Case Administration, followed by Data Quality Analyst. I have been a Systems Analyst for over 15 years. Being a part of NCBC has given me the ability to connect with so many court employees across the country and I hope to meet more in the coming years. I believe NCBC’s most important feature is its promotion of Education for its members and I hope to continue to be a part of this process. Your vote of support would be most appreciated.
My name is Pamela Ricciarelli and I am announcing my candidacy for the position of Secretary with NCBC. For the past two years, I have served as the Local Representative for the District of Rhode Island and have been an active member of NCBC since 2008. I have been employed in the Clerk’s Office for over 6 years in the capacity of Case Administrator as well as serving my District as Courtroom Deputy Back-up and a Chapter 11 Clerk. Prior to my tenure with the Bankruptcy Court, I was employed as a Paralegal for a local Bankruptcy Attorney for over 10 years. NCBC is an organization I firmly believe in. I greatly appreciate that it actively promotes education and provides networking opportunities in addition to so many other benefits! Through my attendance at previous NCBC conferences and Ops forums, I have had the pleasure of connecting with members of the judiciary across the Country. Currently, I am enrolled in the Michigan State University Program, which is and continues to be a learning experience. In addition, I am an associate member of the Association of Bankruptcy Judicial Assistants (ABJA) and am currently serving on the Conference Committee. I am hoping that you will find my credentials appropriate to support my candidacy for the position of Secretary for NCBC. It is a privilege to serve the federal judiciary and I would welcome the opportunity to serve NCBC as Secretary. Thank you in advance for considering me and I would be honored to receive your vote.
