Grassroots effort part of DC legislative conference

Posted 20 May:  Early this month MACA members joined many other ACA members from across the country in Washington DC for ACA's Legislative Conference.  Members received critical updates from chief members of the CFPB, FCC and the FTC.  Associate editor and columnist at The Hill newspaper, A.B. Stoddard welcomed the group with a sobering message with regard to the political landscape we currently face.

Additional key speakers educated and informed the membership prior to a Capitol Hill Reception where various members of the US Congress addressed attendees. ACA members visited with their elected officials on Capitol Hill and discussed such topics as TCPA, Foti catch-22, and the role of the CFPB.  ACA members also asked for support of ACA's petition to the FCC for clarification with regard to the TCPA.

Meeting with legislators is one of the most important proactive measures a member can undertake to support the stability of our industry.  We strongly encourage members to engage at this level.

Spring Fling, May 5-6

Posted 20 May:  Nearly 50 members participated over two days during Spring Fling which featured two, half-day sessions, a vendor sponsored cocktail reception, and the Annual Membership meeting. 

Monday afternoon Harry Strausser led a dynamic Collection Management session allowing attendees to share concerns, offer solutions and outline successes and frustrations in the daily operation of a collection agency and/or collection department.  On May 6, Rozanne Andersen, Chief Compliance Officer (Ontario Systems, LLC) and Chip Hellmann, CFPB Consultant (Ontario Systems, LLC) led attendees through a confidential, self-examination workshop and examination exercise. Each participant was able to leave the session with an action plan to move their agency forward on the CFPB Readiness path.

We appreciate the commitment of time and resources that our speakers, and sponsoring vendors devoted to make 2014 Spring Fling a success.

Special thanks to Global Connect, Pentra, and Renkim for sponsoring Monday's cocktail reception and for providing attendees with information on products and services in support of their businesses.
