Welcome

Welcome to the web site of the National Association of Chapter 13 Trustees (NACTT).

The NACTT was founded by 34 Chapter XIII trustees in 1965. Currently, a little less than 200 Chapter 13 standing trustees serve in the 50 states and Puerto Rico. Today, the NACTT has grown to more than 1,000 members whose membership consists of trustees, bankruptcy judges, lawyers for debtors and creditors, certified public accountants and other insolvency related professionals.

Our organization is dedicated to the highest standards of education related to Chapter 13 bankruptcy and education is the focal point of the NACTT's annual seminar. Members of the NACTT receive the NACTT Quarterly, the official publication of the organization, and reduced rates on NACTT seminars. The Quarterly emphasizes local and national developments in Chapter 13 bankruptcy.

NACTT Mission Statement

The NACTT will provide a forum within which Chapter 13 Trustees will act as an information and communication resource to advance education, leadership, and continuous improvement in the administration of bankruptcy. We will provide the means to establish and implement professional standards and participate in the national legislative and administrative processes while promoting the highest ethical principles.
