AIRA’s Board of Directors conceived the Distinguished Fellows Program as a way to recognize the significant contributions AIRA’s senior members have made to the art and science of corporate restructuring and to AIRA. The program is intended as an academic and professional honor for those AIRA members who exemplify the highest level of excellence in professional practice and whose contributions have left a significant positive legacy to our profession and to AIRA.
Thank you to the Co–Chairs and Planning Committee for their hard work and time in making this year’s conference a big success!
