 Acknowledgement

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.
