Annual Meeting CLE

Join Us for the Annual Meeting

The Debtor-Creditor Annual Meeting and CLE is a celebrated tradition that our members look forward to each year to learn from one another, socialize, and strengthen our state-wide network of professional connections. The 2021 Debtor-Creditor Annual Meeting is scheduled to be held in-person and available virtually in beautiful Sunriver, Oregon October 29-30, 2021.

The 2021 event includes a special retirement dinner and judicial portrait unveiling for the Honorable Trish M. Brown on Friday, October 29, 2021. The Annual CLE Event registration (with discounted room rates and invitation for the dinner) has been circulated via the Debtor-Creditor list serve. Please log into your Oregon State Bar membership portal to register for the event.

The ability to maintain our normal traditions is being continuously challenged by the COVID-19 pandemic, and as such, this event has been changed to a hybrid format. The determination will be made based upon the safest option for the health and wellness of the membership, Oregon State Bar staff, and the communities around us. The brochure for the event is posted here. Note that the number for room reservations has been changed to 1-855-420-8206.

Due to COVID, the 2020 Annual Meeting was limited to a one-day interactive virtual event. The event and CLE was offered free to all Debtor/Creditor Section members. It was a huge success with wonderful, inspiring presenters. Here are excerpts from the 2020 virtual program:

Our esteemed slate of presenters in 2020 included Sr. Economist William (“Bill”) Rule (“Dr. Doom”) of the Administrative Office of U.S. Courts who gave a powerful presentation on the state of the economy at Saturday Session and will present updates since COVID-19. Nationally renowned Tara Twomey, Of Counsel to the National Consumer Law Center and the Project Director for the National Consumer Bankruptcy Rights Center spoke about the impact COVID-19 has had on emerging consumer issues.
