APPOINTMENT TO PANEL OF CHAPTER 7 TRUSTEES

    The United States Trustee seeks resumes from persons wishing to be considered for appointment to the panel of trustees who administer cases filed under chapter 7 of the bankruptcy code.  The appointment is for cases filed in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York, primarily in the Poughkeepsie Division.  Chapter 7 trustees receive compensation and reimbursement for expenses, in each case in which they serve, pursuant to court order under 11 U.S.C. §326 and §330.   

    The minimum qualifications for appointment are set forth in 28 C.F.R. § 58.4.  To be eligible for appointment, an applicant must possess strong administrative, financial and interpersonal skills.  Fiduciary and bankruptcy experience is desirable but not mandatory.
