Credit Counseling Industry Education Series

By on March 14, 2012
Credit Counseling Industry Education Series

The Association of Credit Counseling Professionals (ACCPros) is offering a FREE education series to the Credit Counseling industry. They say they are offering this not only to improve Best Practices in the industry but to also promote their association.

ACCPros states it is unique in the industry as a 501c6 trade association which allows them to lobby directly with lawmakers, and influence legislation that affects all credit counseling providers.

Michael Kerr, their lobbyist, formerly with the Uniform Law Commission, is on the ground working in a number of states, including Florida, New Jersey, Maryland, and Utah. They are also approaching regulators in Michigan, where ACCPros members have a number of issues with the credit counseling audits.

The meeting will be held Wednesday May 9, 2012 at 9:00 AM EDT -to- Friday May 11, 2012 at 1:00 PM EDT at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. More information is available here.
