NACBA’s 28th Annual Convention Cancelled
All Refund Requests by April 10, 2020

Why is NACBA’s 28th Annual Convention being cancelled?

NACBA has been closely monitoring updates, including the latest recommendation from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommending no gatherings over 50 people, as well as the state, local, and federal government recommendations. To ensure the health, safety, and well-being of our participants, exhibitors, staff, and all those involved, we have decided it is the most responsible and prudent course of action to postpone the conference.

Will NACBA’s 28th Annual Convention be postponed rescheduled?

NACBA is carefully monitoring the evolving coronavirus situation. Like many, we are hopeful for an effective solution in the near future. In the meantime, we are pleased to announce that NACBA’s 2020 Members-Only Workshop, December 1 – December 4, 2020 at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort & Spa in Koloa, Hawaii will be transformed to a convention/ workshop hybrid atmosphere. The planning committees for both events will soon meet and discuss a blend of dedicated bankruptcy learning tracks, plenary sessions with special attention to ethics and an engaging sponsor and exhibitor experience all with the backdrop of Hawaiian paradise.

The Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa is an award-winning hotel on an island of unparalleled beauty. NACBA Members and partners will enjoy a $219 per night rate at this exceptional 4 Diamond Hotel. Between now and December, we anticipate extremely aggressive travel pricing and already in place change and cancellation flexibility.
