The American Bankruptcy Institute‘s spring meeting is underway in Washington D.C., and attendees will hear from Detroit Emergency Manager Kevyn Orr today. He’s the keynote speaker for the luncheon, and his talk is titled “The Challenge of a Lifetime.”
Orr’s keynote address is sponsored by the international law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, which represents Bank of America, one of the two banks involved in the Detroit pension “interest rate swaps” deal.

We’ll stream Orr’s speech here during the luncheon, which begins at noon:
