Gene Melchionne Elected to Board of Directors of NACBA
As a Director, Attorney Melchionne will be responsible for setting the Association’s educational program for its annual convention in Chicago in 2015 and ensuring that NACBA will continue to play a key role in shaping the outcome of policy-related debates on consumer bankruptcy issues. He is currently co-chair of the Association’s Technology Committee and acts as State Chair supporting Connecticut members and addressing legislative matters within the state.
“I am excited to amplify my efforts to aid consumers in financial distress by stepping up to a role on NACBA’s board. I hope to reach more judges, lawmakers, and attorneys alike that there is a solution to the burdens of debt caused by factors beyond the consumers’ control”, he said in a recent interview.
Attorney Melchionne is a nationally recognized speaker on financial issues and technology, having most recently spoken to a group of 800 attorneys in New York City and within the last year in New Orleans, Minneapolis, and San Diego. He has regularly consulted with members of the Senate and House in Washington D.C., on matters of bankruptcy law, mortgage foreclosures, credit card debt, and student loans.
