Join a Committee
Committee Newsletters & Committee Participation. ABI committees focus on a wide array of bankruptcy topics—there is a committee for every type of insolvency professional! Committee members work to present relevant topics at the annual Winter Leadership Conference and Annual Spring Meeting, put together electronic newsletters for committee members and interact daily via committee listserves. For more information on ABI committees, click here.

Share your ideas on the Committee Listserves!
Each of ABI’s 25 topic committees has a listserve.  If you are not familiar, a listserve list enables any member of the list to ask questions or share ideas via email with all members of the list.  This is an excellent forum to get quick answers or to establish yourself as an expert in a given area.  See your committee’s webpage at ABIWorld for details or contact the membership department at
