IWIRC Celebrates Female Judges

In conjunction with the 34th Annual Midwestern Bankruptcy Institute & Professional Development Workshop on October 16, the IWIRC-Midwest Network hosted a dinner to celebrate several female judges at Lidia’s Restaurant in Kansas City. Thirty-five women attended this festive inaugural event for the Midwest Network, including these honored judges:


  • Judge Janice Karlin- Kansas
  • Judge Anita Shodeen- Southern District of Iowa
  • Judge Hannah Blumenstiel- Northern District of California
  • Judge Lee  Jackwig- Southern District of Iowa
  • Judge Cynthia Norton- Western District of Missouri
  • Judge Kathy Surratt-States- Eastern District of Missouri 


The event drew members from various cities throughout the Midwest Network – Kansas City, Missouri; Overland Park, Kansas; St. Louis, Missouri and Sioux Falls, Iowa.  In addition, the Midwest Network was thrilled to have members from the Florida, Georgia and Southern California Networks join the party.

Such a good time was had by all that the Midwest Network is already planning how to capitalize on this successful event in 2015!

Member Testimonials

"IWIRC is a great organization for getting connected. Not only is the group fun and professional with its members easy to get to know, the IWIRC conferences prior to the large events (ABI and NCBJ) make those conferences much more manageable as one already sees several friendly faces."
