Why is membership in ILCBA beneficial?
  • Access to the ILCBA ListServ - an Internet discussion group
    ILCBA members are entitled to participate in the ILCBA ListServ, giving each member access to over 200 attorneys located around the state. The ListServ is an excellent way for creditors rights attorneys to ask questions and to communicate with each other on a daily basis.Recent topics include changes in the law, questions pertaining to specific cases, and information about useful Web sites and services. As statedby a new member, "I recently joined up and am mightily impressed by the amount of information exchanged on this list...".


  • eNEWS publication
    The ILCBA eNEWS features information about recent changes in the law, case reviews, and announcements about seminars and luncheon meetings. The Association always welcomes and encourages article submissions.
