Time is running out to register for the International Association of Commercial Collector’s 44th Annual Convention, Jan. 21-23 in Miami Beach.

It’s called Momentum: Catching the Wave, and if you’ve resolved to grow your commercial collection agency’s business in 2015, you really need Momentum!

Attendees will discuss the hottest topics in commercial collection at the always-popular round table session, moderated by Randy Frazee, president of Andersen, Randall & Richards, Inc., Tucson, Ariz. and Greg Cohen, president & CEO of Caine & Weiner, Woodland Hills, Calif.

They’ll also learn:

  • The ins and outs of debt collecting in Europe from Erwin Falkner, CEO, VYNTO GmbH & Co.KG, Munich, Germany, and Kornel Tinguely, president, Creditreform Romandie GNT SA, Lausanne, Switzerland.
  • How to effectively use hotel, airline and credit card loyalty programs to benefit the bottom line from David Schattenstein, Keifer Law Firm, Wilkes Barre, Pa.
  • More about that ‘C’ in CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) from Rob Föehl, vice president & general counsel, ACA International, Minneapolis.
  • The importance of The Art of Communication from keynote speaker John Crotty, executive vice president/partner, Colliers International South Florida in Miami.

“The IACC annual convention provides a unique place to learn from presenters and other attendees in a professional, yet relaxed environment,” said IACC President Lee VandenHeuvel. “Where else can you ask candid questions and share information with colleagues who share your goals?”

Commercial collection veterans and novices always appreciate a chance to network while having fun, and this year they’ll do so on the golf course and while enjoying local nightlife, as well as at a beautiful hotel.

The 2015 convention is especially exciting because IACC will launch a brand-new website and unveil the member toolkit – a set of tools that members can use back home to explain and promote the work they do to their communities and prospective clients.

The toolkit will be available to all IACC members. But, conference attendees can learn the most effective means of using these specialized marketing tools from Leza Raffel, the founder and president of IACC’s public relations firm, The Communication Solutions Group Inc.
