The Bureaus, Inc. attended the 2018 RMA (Receivables Management Association) Executive Summit from July 31st to August 2nd at the Cliff House in beautiful Cape Neddick, Maine. The RMA Executive Summit attracts executives and owners within the accounts receivable industry.
The Bureaus’ team at this year’s Executive Summit included Vice President Marian Sangalang. Attending all of the educational sessions, Mrs. Sangalang listened to the points of view provided by regulators and other speakers as relating to debt collection and the ARM (accounts receivable management) industry. As RMA designs sessions around critically relevant topics, workshops primarily focus on operations, compliance, and legal updates. This year’s sessions also included discussions around cryptocurrency and block chain and the role it may play in the financial marketplace of the future.
The Bureaus are proud to be a 2018 RMA Executive Summit sponsor for the pre-Summit education session. Pre-Summit comprises educational classes required for RMA certification. For those actively seeking RMA certification, Pre-Summit furnishes invaluable information and education credits. Through sponsorship, The Bureaus assisted in providing materials for Pre-Summit certification classes. RMA strives to grow uniform industry standards and increased certification cultivates increased compliance across the industry which includes collection agencies, debt buying companies, collection law firms, and brokers.
While the Executive Summit provided important information to all who attended, it also gave attendees an invaluable opportunity to network with colleagues. Representatives from various companies and fields of the receivables management industry attended Executive Summit. Mrs. Sangalang connected with professionals across the ARM industry through scheduled events as well as the lobster bake.
“This year’s RMA Executive Summit was very rewarding for The Bureaus. In the ARM industry, small changes have a huge impact on our daily business,” says Vice President Marian Sangalang. “Attending events such as the Executive Summit is crucial. The Summit provides a rare opportunity for us to learn together and have immediate, important dialogues. The Bureaus would like to thank RMA for organizing such a wonderful, information-rich environment as well as providing ample opportunities for socializing. We look forward to attending next year!”
