Education

At the 2021 Distressed Investing Conference, TMA is offering more education opportunities than ever before. Each TMA DIC General Session will include a 45-minute presentation AND a 30-minute Innovation Lab component where you can ask questions about what was presented, or bring your own challenge to the table for discussion. Choose from breakouts exploring Post PPP Stimulus, Commercial Real Estate, Global Dealmaking, Chapter 11, and Subchapter V. Earn CLE and CPE, make valuable business connections, and complete your professional conversation with hundreds of other restructuring professionals! 

Take a look at the education sessions you can expect to attend at this year's TMA DIC. All times are in CST.
