The Creditor Education Coalition (CEC) was started by Frank Pees, the standing Chapter 13 Bankruptcy Trustee in Columbus, Ohio. It is the first organization of its type which brings together both creditor and debtor advocates.
The CEC is a forum where creditor attorneys and debtor attorneys come together to share perspectives and opinions on how to make the bankruptcy process more efficient. The CEC also organizes a complex coalition workshop paneled by Bankruptcy Judges, government officials, and Bankruptcy lawyers to discuss current issues in Bankruptcy. It helps keep all involved parties with information that is relevant to our practices. The workshop which is eligible for Continuing Legal Education for attorneys, is concentrated on current issues in bankruptcy. The CEC also has an internet forum for members to ask questions on a platform known as a “mail list”. This internet forum enables members to post and receive answers to questions that are posted.
Attorney Needleman says that he is “very excited to have been elected to the board of a prominent organization such as the CEC, and is proud to support the work they do to improve the bankruptcy system.”
