Compliance Peer-to-Peer Forum

This group is for CCOs, Compliance professionals, and others from member firms to have discussions on best practices, the CFPB’s debt collection rules and other regulatory issues and challenges. We encourage all firms have their lead compliance officer join this peer group. Please reach out to Nathan Willner at [email protected] for more information and to join.

SCBA Leadership Forum

The SCBA Leadership Forum meets every other month and offers a town hall platform to share state level advocacy, best practices and other state centric issues. This group is for anyone interested in tackling state level concerns. Please reach out to Nathan Willner at [email protected] for more information and to join.

In-House Counsel Forum

Our vision for the In-House Counsel Forum is to provide our In-House Counsel Members an opportunity to meet informally for peer-to-peer discussions centered around creditors rights topics of practical interest. In-House Counsel Forum members will address the special management challenges they face practicing as corporate counsel in a highly regulated industry. Topics could include compliance, legal ethics, best practices, client communications, and other real life solutions to raised hypotheticals. The group is only open to NCBA In-House Counsel members only. Please reach out to Nathan Willner at [email protected] for more information and to join.

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Committee

The mission of the Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Committee is to leverage best practices and resources to promote equal opportunity and an inclusive culture that attracts and retains member attorneys, leaders, and industry partners with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and characteristics within the legal profession and NCBA. Are you a NCBA member and interested in joining? Please e-mail [email protected]

Bankruptcy Peer Forum

The Bankruptcy Peer Forum, co-chaired by Landon Van Winkle and John Sperati of Smith Debnam Narron Drake Saintsing & Meyers, LLP, provides creditors rights attorneys an opportunity to meet informally for peer-to-peer conversations and feedback. Discussions will focus around current developments and best practices for representing creditors in consumer and commercial bankruptcy cases, including both practical applications and legal aspects.

Topics may include substantive and procedural aspects of bankruptcy practice in bankruptcy courts and bankruptcy law as it relates to state or federal courts’ insolvency laws. This peer forum will meet two times a year, once in-person at the annual conference and another virtually. If interested, please reach out to Kristin Berkery at [email protected] for more information and to join.
