The continued solvency of your bond principal is questionable and bankruptcy appears looming on the horizon. But what exactly will happen if the bond principal files for bankruptcy? Join SFAA for a 1.5 hour webinar that will provide an introduction to bankruptcy, including a discussion of the statute and rules governing a bankruptcy proceeding; the key players; the differences between a Chapter 7, Chapter 11, and Chapter 13 bankruptcy proceeding; important deadlines; objections to dischargeability; the scope of the automatic stay; the treatment of trust funds and the debtor’s use of cash receipts post-petition; the assumption and rejection of executory contracts, including surety bonds; the effect of cancellation of surety bonds; the scope of the debtor’s discharge, and the meanings of many of those bankruptcy “buzz” words and acronyms you can never seem to remember! (SFAA will offer a webinar on more advanced bankruptcy topics as they affect the surety on June 17, 2015.)

Explore these issues with experts in the fields of surety and bankruptcy law. This webinar will provide a great opportunity for SFAA company underwriters, claims’ professionals and other risk-management professionals to obtain a basic knowledge of bankruptcy law and procedure.
