About the NCBC

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.
