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.  Management, 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 standing trustees are not federal employees, appointments are made consistent with federal Equal Opportunity policies, which prohibit discrimination in employment.  All resumes should be received on or before May 31, 2017.
