The NCBC was formed in 1980 to serve the professional needs of the newly created position of Clerk of Court for the United States Bankruptcy Courts.  Initial membership was only open to appointed Clerks of Court, but was later expanded to include deputy clerks, as well as others interested in the bankruptcy community.

Through the years, the NCBC has been a voice on matters that impact the bankruptcy system, and our president sits as an ex-officio member of the Bankruptcy Clerks Advisory Group.  Here we can raise issues and be advocates for issues which our membership supports.

As a result of the expansion of the membership categories, NCBC also broadened its mission, essentially focusing its efforts in four areas: Leadership, Education, Advocacy and Solutions.  This has been incorporated into everything that NCBC does, highlighted by the annual education conference.


On behalf of the National Conference of Bankruptcy Clerks (NCBC), I take great pride in introducing you to our organization. Formed in 1980, the NCBC has evolved into serving the professional needs of Clerks of Courts and Deputy Clerks.

I feel privileged to be a part of this great association dedicated to the service of members across the nation. Membership in the NCBC has many benefits, please take time to review our website to see what we have to offer.

We welcome you to participate in the endless opportunities, joining a network of dedicated and first rate employees in the judiciary. If you are not a member, I encourage you to consider joining and becoming a part of an organization committed to the needs of its members. If you would like to know more or play an active role, please reach out to me or any of our board members.
