Live Classes at the 2018 Conference
Two live classes will be offered at this year’s conference in New York City. Visioning and Strategic Planning (with Barry Lander) and Education and Training (with the Federal Judicial Center’s Stephanie Hemmert and Phyllis Drum). Details regarding the schedule will be included in later conference information. These classes conclude the current five-year cycle. There is a planned graduation in New York for those who complete their capstone projects in 2018.
What if I Need More Classes to Finish?
If additional coursework is needed to complete the certificate program, it may be completed via self-paced, online classes or as scheduled in a more interactive mode. But remember, ALL coursework must be completed by March 30, 2019 and all fees paid by April 30, 2019.

In her letter the NCBC President Gina Thomas and the NCBC Board, Dr. Conner said “it is with sadness that I send you and the NCBC Board my final MSU/NCBC Mid-Year Report. I do so knowing that through our partnership we touched the lives of all those who participated in the Judicial Administration Program. The work that NCBC and MSU did together leaves an enduring legacy of passion, commitment, and leadership for the work of the bankruptcy courts. We made a difference.” Dr. Conner – we thank you for our 15-year partnership and the difference YOU made to so many students and graduates.
