In lieu of an in-person 3C’s conference this year, NWPPA will hold a 3C’s Month in October filled with a robust offering of popular NWPPA courses that we have run in the past as well as brand new content, all delivered as webinars! 

Webinar Overview:

Almost one million businesses and individuals file bankruptcy annually in the United States. Although bankruptcies filed by customers are a challenge for any business, they present a special type of challenge for utilities due to the necessity of their services to consumers. Utilities must find a balance between following the laws as they relate to bankruptcy, while also being responsive to their customers and limiting the exposure to revenue loss. This course covers all the basic information relating to bankruptcies that you need to best help your customers that have or are filing for bankruptcy.

Webinar Recordings:

Webinar recordings can be made available to registrants who are unable to attend live.

Webinar Instructor:

Debra Ballard, The Ballard Group

Webinar Schedule:

The webinar will be held from 10 a.m.-noon Pacific Time on October 7, 2021. Attendees will be admitted 15 minutes before the webinar begins.

How to Participate:

Instructions will be emailed to attendees within 12 hours of the webinar and we recommend that you test the link to the meeting as soon as you get the instructions. The webinar is best viewed using Chrome as your browser. We recommend that you use a landline for both your phone and your internet connections.

This registration is for one person to attend. We manage our webinars on an honor-system basis; if more than one person from a utility wishes to attend, each is to register separately.
