Learn in LA!

By Bronston, Edythe*

The California Receivers Forum Board of Directors received so many requests from receivership professionals for an encore to its April, 2000 “Receiver-ships in the New Millennium: Part I” program presented in conjunction with Loyola Law School that it couldn’t refuse any longer. “Receiverships in the New Millennium, Part II,” affectionately referred to as “Loyola II,” will be presented by the Forum Friday and Saturday, October 8th and 9th, 2004, in the state-of-the art Robinson Courtroom at Loyola Law School at Ninth and Alvarado Streets in downtown Los Angeles.

This won’t be a repeat program, however — far from it. Loyola II is planned as an encyclopedic swing through the practice and law of receiverships from appointments to discharge and exoneration, with stops in between as diverse as receiverships for sub-standard housing, accounting and tax issues and receiverships for teetering health care companies.

Loyola I was attended by 75 seasoned receivership professionals from throughout the state. Hosted breakfasts, coffee breaks, lunches, and an evening cocktail party accented the substantive programs and provided a unique networking opportunity four years ago. Loyola II will include all these features, and much more.

Two Keynote luncheon panels — a judicial panel with judges from several courts speaking on both general and unique receivership issues, and a regulatory panel discussing enforcement from the perspective of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the FDIC, the FTC, the Department of Corporations, and the Attorney General’s office — will be highlights of the event.

The announcement of the seminar has already generated a number of reservations in advance of distribution of the application form (provided on the reverse of this page). Sponsorships for all of the amenities to be furnished to program attendees are already sold and in place. These sponsors are committed to making the two-day experience not only educational, but fun for all who attend: Braun Appraisers and Auctioneers; Crossroads LLC; D.S.I. Development Specialists, Inc.; Douglas Wilson Companies; Elite Properties, Inc.; Mara Escrow; Mega Group Investigations; Squar & Associates; Stewart Title of California and Tranzon Asset Strategies.

Twenty-four panels of experienced professionals will address the assembly over the two-day event. Locating assets, environmental concerns for receivers, compensation and family law receivership entanglements are a few of the additional topics to be discussed. MCLE credits will be provided.

Tuition is $645 for non-CRF members who are first time Loyola-attendees and includes a one-year membership in the CRF. Tuition is $545 for CRF members, $445 for CRF members who attended Loyola I.
