Membership in NACBA is open to attorneys who support the objectives of NACBA, meet the Eligibility Criteria, and have read and agree to the Acknowledgement:
Membership Eligibility Criteria
- Active and retired bankruptcy judges;
- Bankruptcy trustees;
- Bankruptcy court clerks; and
- Agency/academic members who are attorneys not engaged in the private practice of law and who are employees of non-profit institutions of higher education or non-profit organizations that provide legal services.
The following criteria are exceptions to the Eligibility Criteria. If these conditions cannot be met, an individual is not eligible for membership in NACBA:
- If the individual is an attorney who is engaged in the private practice of bankruptcy law, such attorney must not primarily represent creditors against consumer debtors in bankruptcy; and
- If the individual is an attorney who is not personally engaged in the private practice of bankruptcy law, such attorney may not be affiliated with a law firm or legal employer that in bankruptcy matters primarily represents creditors against consumer debtors.
I hereby apply for membership in the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF CONSUMER BANKRUPTCY ATTORNEYS, INC. (NACBA), a District of Columbia non-profit corporation. I have read the Membership Eligibility Criteria and hereby affirm that I meet the Membership Eligibility Criteria. I agree to support the objectives of the corporation. I understand that the basic goals of the organization are to: (a) protect the rights of consumer bankruptcy debtors; (b) provide educational and networking opportunities for attorneys who primarily represent consumer bankruptcy debtors; and (c) educate policy makers regarding the needs of consumer bankruptcy debtors. I understand that a portion of my dues will not be deductible as a business expense because NACBA advocates for legislation on behalf of consumer debtors.
