Success and achievement are a combination of knowledge, relationships and action. These principles will be examined throughout the conference.
This year, start the conference by connecting with Regulators and then we head straight into a presidential style Great Debate! You won’t want to miss four of the industry’s leading professionals debate the concepts of collection effectiveness and compliance. Yes, you can be effective and compliant too!
