Current Issues in Collections and Bankruptcy – What You Need to Know Now

We made it! And what a year it has been. Unfortunately, now is not the time to take a victory lap. As your credit union continues to find its “new normal”, the collections department needs to recognize the new opportunities and hidden traps which exist in assisting the troubled member in 2021. From understanding the virtual workflow to new ways to assess default risk and improving your collections communications to understanding your rights in bankruptcy, this informative and interactive session is sure to have something for you! It is never too late to sharpen your collections skills and better position your credit union to assist troubled members who want to work with you during these unprecedented times and maximize the recovery from everyone else.

But wait, there is more! This often-overlooked operational area is at the unfortunate crossroads of member service and compliance risk and this creates the need to be continually looking for ways to improve our performance, while limiting risk. Very few other areas have undergone a greater regulatory transformation in the last year than collections. Are you prepared?
Join credit union attorney and collections consultant David Reed for an exciting virtual training event as he highlights the latest techniques, tips and best practices to maximize your collections function in today’s complicated environment.
