Chicago, TMA’s 6,700 members in 33 regional

chapters comprise a professional community of

turnaround practitioners, attorneys, accountants,

investors, lenders, venture capitalists,

appraisers, liquidators, executive recruiters and

consultants as well as academic, government

professionalism,integrity and competence. The

Certified Turnaround Professional (CTP) accreditation

program recognizes professional excellence

and provides an objective measure of

expertise related to workouts, restructurings

and corporate renewal.

Who Should Attend

The 2004 Annual Convention is a must for anyone

involved in the corporate renewal industry,

including practitioners, lenders, attorneys,

interim corporate managers, financial planners,

investors, appraisers, liquidators and

auctioneers.

Why You Should Attend

This convention is the premier industry event,

offering incomparable education and networking

opportunities. What makes this event

special is:

• Knowledge. Learn how to apply the techniques

used by the industry’s leading professionals

to transform troubled companies

worldwide. Visit with more than 60 exhibiting

service providers who will introduce you

to new tools to improve your business and

client relations.

• Trends. Identify and explore emerging trends

in law, lending practices, international

engagements and firm management, among

other timely and relevant topics.

• Networking. Foster relationships by attending

numerous social events, including coffee

breaks, meals, receptions and the gala dinner

and dessert reception on Monday night.

It is my pleasure to invite you to TMA’s 2004 Annual Convention.

This year’s theme, “The Evolving Role of Turnaround Management,”

speaks to new opportunities for corporate renewal

professionals. With more and more of us finding business outside of

the United States, and with more countries beginning to embrace the

concept of corporate renewal, the convention committee decided to

highlight these expanding horizons. As a result, we’ve dedicated several

concurrent sessions to specific regions of the world, educating

you on the laws, customs and ways in which we, as turnaround professionals, can

help.

We also wanted to focus on the evolving role of the corporate renewal industry in an

improving economy. You will notice concurrent sessions highlighting firm management

issues, such as critical mass and business diversification, and sessions dealing

with the why’s and how’s of hiring turnaround professionals.

The general sessions offer meaningful education as well. Laura Davis Jones of

Pachulski Stang Ziehl Young Jones & Weintraub will moderate a panel of U.S. bankruptcy

judges, who will discuss trends in professional retention. Andrew Miller of

Houlihan Lokey Howard & Zukin takes on the “Titans of Lending,” moderating a

panel of senior lending professionals who will, among other things, offer their predictions

for the coming year. Finally, Jack Butler of Skadden Arps Slate Meagher &

Flom LLP will moderate a panel on distressed investing.

With a New York City venue, who is more appropriate than Former New York City

Mayor Rudy Giuliani to kick-off the convention? Giuliani will speak on the “principles

of leadership,” drawing from his experience in public office and his perseverance

in the months following September 11. Keynote presenter Erin Gruwell, a nationally

recognized teacher who executed a classroom turnaround, provides a perfect backdrop

for the inaugural presentation of the Butler-Cooley Excellence in Teaching

Awards. As a former teacher, I find Erin’s story inspirational and know you will too

when you read more about her on page 4. Finally, Gene Taylor, President of

Commercial Banking at Bank of America, will offer his insight into trends in the

lending community.

Additional convention highlights include the presentation of the Carl Marks Student

Paper Competition prizes; the TMA Annual Awards presentation; the exhibit hall,

with more than 60 firms showcasing their goods and services; and numerous

networking events, where you can forge new relationships and visit with friends and

colleagues.

As you read through the brochure, please note the names of those individuals who

served on the convention and host committees. This event would not be possible

without their support and contribution.

The combination of general and concurrent sessions, keynote presentations and

networking events is sure to educate, entertain, and make your convention experience

an unforgettable one. I personally look forward to seeing you in New York.

Best regards,

Sheila T. Smith

KEYNOTE SESSIONS

HON.RUDY GIULIANI, Former Mayor of New York City

“Principles of Leadership”

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 8:00 A.M. – 9:30 A.M.

Co-sponsored in part by Glass & Associates, Inc. and Jefferies & Co., Inc.

During his two terms as mayor, Rudy Giuliani made New York into the great city it

once was with his ideas, management and goal-driven style. In eight years, he

reduced crime by 57 percent, cut welfare rolls in half, reduced taxes by $2.5 billion

and created a record number of new jobs. Because of his leadership, the city is once

again a great place to live and one of the world’s most productive metropolises. But

his toughest challenge had yet to come. With the tragic events of September 11, the rest of the world

found out what New Yorkers already knew — that Rudy Giuliani was a determined leader who could bring

them remarkable strength and stability at a time of great uncertainty. During the crisis he became, in

essence, “America’s Mayor.” He calmed, consoled and reassured the public, while urging them to return

to their normal lives and not to let the terrorists achieve their aim of disrupting life. In one of the saddest

times in American history, the remarkable leadership of Mayor Giuliani and

the extraordinary heroism of his fellow New Yorkers restored faith in the ideals that are so vital to a free

society. Mayor Giuliani was named Time magazine’s 2001 Person of the Year Award and Queen Elizabeth II

awarded him an honorary KBE — Knight Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.

Sharing with audiences the principles of leadership, Rudy Giuliani looks back at the important lessons

he has learned during a lifetime of public service and how he drew on those lessons to provide strength

at a defining moment in America’s history.

ERIN GRUWELL, Educator

“Becoming a Catalyst for Change”

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 11:45 A.M. – 2:15 P.M. (time includes lunch)

Erin Gruwell accomplished what many thought impossible. She helped 150 of her

students, many who had been written off by the education system, realize the power

of education and the value of tolerance and diversity in the classroom. With

Gruwell’s guidance and encouragement, the Freedom Writers, who once believed

they were “unteachable” and “sure-to-drop-out,” have graduated from high school

and are now pursuing undergraduate and graduate degrees. The journey of this teacher and her students

is chronicled in Freedom Writers’ Diary – How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves

and the World Around Them. Gruwell’s commitment to teaching tolerance has attracted national media

attention, and in 2005, Miramax Films will release a feature film based on the Freedom Writers’ story.

Gruwell also founded and is president of the Erin Gruwell Education Project, a non-profit organization

devoted to teaching tolerance, funding college scholarships for underprivileged students and propagating

their vision for revolutionizing education for “at-risk” students. She also created and led the “Ambassadors

of Tolerance Tour,” which took the Freedom Writers to visit Auschwitz concentration camp in Poland, Anne

Frank’s attic in Amsterdam and war-torn Sarajevo.

In her inspiring speech, Gruwell tells the story of this extraordinary journey from poverty and despair

to hope and promise. How can one person take on seemingly insurmountable problems of poverty, racism,

and violence? What can we do in our lives to motivate and inspire those around us to achieve greatness?

Erin Gruwell teaches us all how we can become “catalysts for change.”

R. EUGENE “GENE”TAYLOR,

President of Commercial Banking, Bank of America

MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 12:30 P.M. – 3:00 P.M. (time includes lunch)

R. Eugene Taylor is president of Bank of America Commercial Banking and leads the

company’s middle market banking, business capital, leasing, commercial real estate,

community development banking and dealer financial services businesses. He also

is responsible for Bank of America (Asia) Ltd. and is a member of the company’s

Risk & Capital and Management Operating Committees. Taylor joined the company

in Charlotte, N.C., in 1969 as a credit analyst. He served in branch offices and in

marketing and management positions across North Carolina and Florida. In 1990, he was named president

of the Florida bank. In 1993, he was named president of NationsBank Mid Atlantic. After Barnett Bank

was acquired in 1997, he returned to Florida as president of the merged bank. In 1998, Bank of America

and NationsBank merged, and Taylor was named president of the West Region. Management of the Central

Region was added to Taylor’s responsibilities in February 2000. He was named president of Consumer &

Commercial Banking in June 2001 and assumed his present role with the completion of the Bank of

America/FleetBoston Financial merger in 2004.

Taylor will provide an overview of Bank of America following the merger with Fleet and will offer

perspectives on the commercial banking industry and businesses.

CONCURRENT SESSION ONE

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17, 10:00 A.M. – 11:30 A.M.

“Across the Pond: Restructuring Developments

in the E.U.”

Moderator: N. Lynn Hiestand, Skadden, Arps, Slate,

Meagher & Flom (UK) LLP

Panel: Gianluigi Esposito, Esq., Chiomenti Studio

Legale; Neville B. Kahn, Deloitte & Touche LLP; Marshall

Lester, Ozer International; Dennis Levine, Burdale

Financial Limited; Peter F. Stevens, Credit Suisse First

Boston Europe Ltd.

As more and more investors turn to Europe as fertile

ground for investing, both in distressed debt and

in securities that become distressed, companies are

having to take new approaches to working out their

problems. Countries are realizing that preservation is

usually preferable to liquidation and are responding

with new legislative developments, such as those in the

U.K., Italy and France. Hedge funds are demanding seats

at a table that historically was dominated by banks.

Shareholders are becoming active in seeking to preserve

value. The E.U. is trying to give jurisdictional guidance.

And, restructuring professionals are actively responding

to and assisting in these changes. This panel, composed

of restructuring professionals from across Europe, will

discuss the latest developments in that region of the

world.

“Around the Horn: Perspective on

Latin American Restructurings”

Moderator: Neil Augustine, Rothschild Inc.

Panel: Richard J. Cooper, Cleary, Gottlieb, Steen &

Hamilton; Fernando E. Del Castillo, Santamarina y Steta

S.C.; Robert L. Rauch, Gramercy Advisors LLC

This panel, comprised of investment bankers, U.S. and

Mexican counsel and distressed debt investing specialists,

will provide a first-hand perspective on how to

bring about a successful financial restructuring in a

difficult environment, one that is often littered with

failures. The panel will explore divergent views of creditor

and debtor negotiating strategies and leverage points.

The dueling perspectives of borrowers and creditors of

implementation options will also be debated.

“Building On Your Core: Should Your Firm Add

Complimentary Lines of Business, and How?”

Moderator: Holly Felder Etlin, XRoads Solutions Group

Panel: Warren H. Feder, Carl Marks Capital Advisors LLC;

Stephen Gray, TRG; Cory Lipoff, Hilco Merchant

Resources LLC; Paul Traub, Traub Bonacquist & Fox LLP

As the latest downturn cycle comes to a close, firms in

the turnaround industry are evaluating their core competencies

and how to position their services for the

future. Each of these panelists has added business lines

successfully to their firms over the past ten years and

will discuss the key issues and pitfalls in the process.

CONCURRENT SESSIONS

CONCURRENT SESSION TWO

MONDAY, OCTOBER 18, 3:15 P.M. – 4:45 P.M.

“Getting on the Short List”

Moderator: DeLain Gray, FTI Consulting, Inc.

Panel: Wilma Davis, John Hancock Financial Services

Inc./Bond and Corporate Finance Group; Thomas J.

Donnelly, UBS Investment Bank; Kaye Handley, AIG

Global Investment Corp.; Paul V. Kennedy, Banc of

America; Sharon F. Manewitz, Teachers Insurance &

Annuity Association

“Issues Affecting Firm Management

Moderator: Daniel F. Dooley, CTP, Morris-Anderson &

Associates, Ltd.

Panel: James J. Loughlin Jr., CTP, Loughlin Meghji +

Company; Deborah Midanek, Glass & Associates, Inc.;

James M. Rubenstein, CTP, Alert Consultants Inc.;

Robert H. Warshauer, Ernst & Young Corporate Finance LLC

This panel will discuss a variety of issues currently

impacting turnaround and financial advisory firms, from

small local practices to large international practices.

Topics will include the impact of referral source consolidation,

revenue sources post-insolvency boom, internationalization

of practices, increased use of professional

marketing and branding, accounting-based

approach versus operational-based approach, roll-ups

and consolidation of practices, oversight and management

of principals, use of success fees and splitting up

the firm income.

“Ole, eh? Mexico and Canada:

Neighbors and Friends of the U.S.A.”

Moderator: Steven J. Weisz, Blake, Cassels & Graydon LLP

Panel: Ibrahim Dia, Royal Bank of Canada; Brock Edgar,

PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc.; Gilbert A. Herrera, GA

Herrera & Co. LLC; Elias Makris, GE National

Restructuring Group; Jorge Sanchez, Goodrich

Riquelme; William E. Skelly, Heenan Blaikie LLP

As the borders between Canada, Mexico and the United

States have become less of a barrier following the

implementation of NAFTA, business enterprises have

expanded and integrated their operations between and

within those countries. Opportunities for turnaround

professionals abound throughout North America. While

the issues facing turnaround professionals may

transcend borders, cultural, legal and social differences

still need to be understood, appreciated and considered.

Implementing a turnaround involving Canadian or

Mexican operations requires the guidance and expertise

of professionals accustomed to those foreign characteristics.

This panel will explore and highlight the similarities

and differences of the turnaround businesses in

Canada and Mexico and how you can better understand

and take advantage of the opportunities that exist and

continue to develop to the north and south.

registration includes entrance to all meals, social functions, keynote presentations and the exhibit hall. Meals and social

functions are not available on a pro-rated basis.
