Cramdown Planning Meeting
Interested in becoming more involved with the Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association? Want to write an article but can't think of a topic? A great way to get started is through The Cramdown, our quarterly newsletter publication. Please join us to discuss hot topics, relevant issues and articles for upcoming issues, and get to know the other members. The meeting will take place at noon on Friday, May 22, 2015 at the offices of Trenam Kemker, 101 E. Kennedy Blvd., 27th floor, Tampa, FL 33602. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for food purposes.
The Pro Se/Pro Bono Clinic has been very successful because of the assistance of all our volunteers. One of the upgrades to the clinic is that the creation of a new email account for the Pro Bono Clinic with links to the sign-up sheet. Now the sign-up sheet is in one location for everyone to reach and sign up for time slots.
Please take a look at the current sheet, we still have quite a few open times for tomorrow and the rest of the month. We greatly appreciate any help you can give.

What is the TBBBA?
The Tampa Bay Bankruptcy Bar Association has over 300 members representing debtors, creditors and trustees in bankruptcy. All attorneys who practice in the Middle District of Florida are invited to join.
The Association sponsors monthly luncheons with speakers and frequent seminars which qualify for Florida Bar continuing legal education credit. In addition, there are monthly informal consumer attorney meetings to discuss practice pointers, often with the participation of one or more of the local bankruptcy judges.
A goal of the Association is to provide its members with information necessary to the bankruptcy practice in the Tampa Division. In addition to the Cramdown, a quarterly publication, periodic e-mail messages keep the membership informed of current bankruptcy issues.
Members are actively involved in a range of projects. One project is designed to assist debtors that cannot afford attorney representation. Another is working with the judiciary and the clerk's office to promote communication and meet the needs of all parties in the bankruptcy system.
Working together, Association members have developed a camaraderie among bankruptcy practitioners in this division that is noteworthy. Please join us in this endeavor and let us have your thoughts and ideas.
