For those of you that attended the Credit Retreat in February, I am sure you can agree that this was well worth the time and money. Jason Torf did a fabulous job of taking us through the complete process of bankruptcy, answering all of our questions, and giving us some wonderful information to take back to our companies. From filing claims to preferences and how to fight them, Jason covered a ton of information and kept us engaged and interested while in the process. On Saturday we were able to speak to a bankruptcy judge and ask questions regarding a variety of scenarios. Judge Trish Brown has a great deal of experience in Bankruptcy court and was able to give us good answers for the questions that we submitted. In the afternoon, Jason took over again to give us some insight on Pacer as well as other tips and tricks on how to look up bankruptcy filings and how to read some of the documents associated with them. And to end the day Joel Bornzin and Melissa Barker spoke to us on how to manage our online reputation and presence.
I want to send out a huge thank you to the Retreat Committee and especially Brett Hanft, CBA, and Charlene Gothard, CBA, for all the work they put into this retreat. The content was fabulous and I believe that everyone in attendance walked away with some form of new relevant information and networking contacts.
Thank you also to Alice Knight who spoke to us on international credit in February. Her presentations are always packed full of information and I love to listen to the war stories that she always shares with us.
I look forward to seeing you all on the 13th. Have a great March!
