Membership is Free.
Because CCBA does not employ a lobbyist, the costs to operate CCBA are minimal. With the exception of refreshments during CLE programs and any fees associated with our intramural sports facet, the only investment is time. What we ask is that each member chooses a feature of the CCBA to be involved with and donate, when you can, some time to that section. I believe that assisting debtor’s counsel in honing our skills, in educating our lot, should be a free service. That vision is at the forefront of the creation of the CCBA.
- You must primarily represent debtors when appearing in bankruptcy court, or work for an attorney that primarily represents debtors (support staff welcome!).
- You must keep CCBA information confidential among its members and your staff.
- Membership is not available to any attorney or employee working for one of the “bait and switch” law practices or to a practice that does not primarily represent debtors.
- While it does not cost, we ask all members to assist by donating their time on an as-needed and as-able basis for one of the membership facets. That can mean sharing your pleadings or case updates, assist in mentoring other attorneys/support staff, aid in the production and presentation of CLEs, submit articles to be published in the e-Newsletter, or even organizing a kickball game at a local park.
