President ’ s REPORT list serve and community platform , volunteer as presenters on webinars and seminars , and assist on briefs to the courts and communications with their federal and state representatives . We have members who dedicate a significant amount of time volunteering in many areas . This is truly an active organization with members who care deeply about our core principles : Educate , Advocate and Litigate .

2017 marks NACBA ’ s 25th Anniversary . In addition to an exciting convention ( Silver Anniversary celebration ) May 4-7 , with ADVANCED Topics and more social events being planned in Orlando , Florida , this year will
be extremely important for us to INCREASE our advocacy efforts with elected representatives about issues that affect our clients , including student loans , predatory lending and potential changes to the Bankruptcy Code . High priority will also be placed on identifying new and continued ways to further support the Amicus Brief efforts of NCBRC . Either via the Judicial system or the Legislative system , only an engaged membership can break through the gridlock and bring positive change on behalf of the needs of consumer debtors in bankruptcy .
I am confident that , together , we will successfully address upcoming challenges . We have a strong and dedicated Board of Directors . Our NACBA staff , including Executive Director Dan LaBert and Director of Events Rachael Hodgen , is the best in the country . Our membership includes more engaged members than any bar association – period . Together we will make 2017 our finest year .
Yours sincerely ,
Jim Haller President
When you have to be right .
