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 Western District of Kentucky, primarily in the Owensboro 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. 58.3.  To be eligible for appointment, an applicant must possess strong administrative, financial and interpersonal skills.  Fiduciary and bankruptcy experience is desirable but not mandatory.

             A successful applicant will be required to undergo a background check, and must qualify to be bonded. Although chapter 7 trustees are not federal employees, appointments are made consistent with federal Equal Opportunity policies, which prohibit discrimination in employment.

             Forward resumes to the United States Trustee, 601 West Broadway, Suite 512, Louisville, KY 40202.  All resumes should be received on or before March 31, 2017.
