Collections are one of the most challenging tasks at your cooperative. You have to collect a delinquent account from a member who probably is already experiencing financial stress from other collectors and dealing with other life worries. How do you combine customer service with the get-it-done demands of your position? This workshop is designed for credit managers, office managers and finance employees. This program will help you in measuring your collection effectiveness, complying with laws, and maintaining good customer relations. We’ll use a round table to compare notes and bring your challenges to the table! All attendees will receive materials containing valuable information, practical answers, helpful tips, and techniques that can be put to work every day.


Key Topics
