The National Association of Bankruptcy Trustees is the essential organization for the Chapter 7 Trustee community. We are committed to improving the administration of bankruptcy by promoting professionalism, education, and the open exchange of ideas throughout our association.

This commitment is most evident at our annual conference where attendees come to learn from their colleagues, share their experiences, develop business relationships and advance their profession. As a professional in the Chapter 7 Bankruptcy Trustee community, you don't want to miss this opportunity to stay current on issues related to you, and what better way to do it than by joining your colleagues in Amelia Island, Florida.
