Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center National Harbor, Maryland (just outside of D.C.)


to WELCOME WASHINGTON DC The tagline “Washington, D.C. As You’ve Never Seen It Before” couldn’t be more true than at this year’s Annual Spring Meeting at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center. Nestled in a harbor on the banks of the Potomac with views of our Nation’s Capitol, this hotel offers the best in the meetings industry with high-end guest rooms and fine and casual dining, unique retail shops, a 20,000 square foot spa and fitness center, and a two-story rooftop nightclub. National Harbor finally brings together what our Founding Fathers hoped D.C. would be: a town bustling with river traffic, utilizing all that historic Maryland, Virginia and Washington, D.C., have to offer. Our VP of Education, Jim Markus, has assembled a roster of the best national speakers, and the depth and scope of the topics offer something for everyone. A special focus is on the tough policy choices facing the administration and Congress. Specifically, four concurrent workshops will cover various “tracks,” including programs for attorneys in large and small commercial cases, a track for restructuring professionals and a track dealing solely with consumer issues. We offer more than 16 hours of CLE in some states and ethics totalling 3 hours. In addition, 20 committee sessions, will drill down on topics covered in the larger sessions to provide you with the most practical and varied CLE experience ever. Optional events range from a first-time golf tournament at National Golf Club at Tantallon, an Orioles vs. Red Sox baseball game at Camden Yards and the always-popular musical troupe, The Capitol Steps. Plenty of networking events, including the IWIRC Luncheon and Founders Awards, the Opening Reception, Friday Luncheon with keynote by award-winning journalist Stuart Varney and the Women’s Networking Reception, will provide you with the opportunity to reconnect with colleagues and meet many more! Bring your best dancing shoes and enjoy our Final Night Dinner, being headlined by KC & The Sunshine Band and supported by nationally recognized law firms.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Lauter Freeborn & Peters LLP; Chicago Eric S. Rein Dykema Gossett PLLC; Chicago Legislation “Bankrupting the Trustee: Coping with BAPCPA’s New Burdens on Chapter 7 Trustees in Business Cases” When Congress enacted BAPCPA, it added many new responsibilities for chapter 7 trustees in consumer cases. What is less well known is that it also added major new duties to the chapter 7 trustees in business cases—changes that may require the trustee to pay out of pocket where the debtor company has no liquid assets. Among those changes are the requirement under §704(a)(11) that trustees perform the obligations required of the administrator of an employee benefit plan, even though the assets of such a plan are not property of the bankruptcy estate, and imposing on the trustee under §§351 and 704(a)(12) the responsibility for all patients and patient records including expensive audits and proper disposal of

the records and transfer of the patients. Also, as more businesses are being operated for short periods of time in chapter 7, additional issues and potential liabilities are raised. Prof. Jack F.

Additionally, we will cover the strategies most often employed by parties to enhance the likelihood of success in completing an assignment transaction. H.
