About the Compliance Professionals Forum

You won’t let research slow you down. But, you wouldn’t base your judgement on limited perspective or outdated resources, either. You need to make strong decisions at the speed your business demands. That's where the Compliance Professionals Forum comes in.

What is the Compliance Professionals Forum?

It's a membership organization for anyone tasked with managing consumer debt. CPF offers practical, timely answers to your toughest compliance questions – when you need them, in the format you want them.

You’ll learn how your company compares with others in the industry, via our benchmark reports, peer calls, and regional compliance meetings. Plus constantly improve your own system with tools, checklists, call-scripts, spreadsheets, and policies/procedures.
