C

redit and collection professionals
in search of a fast-pass to a
valuable ACA International
designation flocked to Las Vegas in
March to attend the new Campus ACA
Academy at Spring Forum & Expo. The
three-day event, previously an all-purpose
conference covering a wide variety of
issues, shifted gears this year to focus
specifically on credentialing and training.
At the opening general session,
attendees got caught up on regulatory
developments in Washington, D.C.,
from ACA CEO Mark Neeb and ACA
President Rick Perr, who tackled burning
questions regarding the state of the
industry in today's political and economic
environment.
After that, attendees dove into curriculum
designed to help them earn or renew
professional designations in management,
compliance and attorney education.
ACA members committed to expanding
their expertise in the credit and collection
industry had the opportunity to knock out
all the required courses to achieve one of the
following designations:
* Credit and Collection Compliance
Officer (CCCO)

* Professional Collection Management
(PCM)
* Collection Industry Professional
(CIP)
* Credit & Collection Compliance
Attorney (CCCA)
And as an added bonus, ACA offered
a one-day training seminar on the
Professional Practices Management System
with Elizabeth Conklin, account executive
at State Collection Service Inc.
In addition to all of these insightful
educational opportunities, the Campus
ACA Academy at Spring Forum & Expo
provided attendees time to network with
their peers and visit with more than three
dozen exhibitors in the expo hall.
Just before the event wrapped up,
ACA received word that it had secured
a decisive victory from the U.S. Court
of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in its
landmark case, ACA International v.
Federal Communications Commission, et
al. Perr gathered attendees to announce
the good news, and the room exploded in
cheers and high fives.
ACA thanks all of the trainers, speakers,
exhibitors and guests who attended the new
Campus ACA Academy at Spring Forum
& Expo. But opportunities to network with
your peers and learn from the brightest
minds in our industry continue! Mark
your calendar now for the biggest industry
event of the year: ACA's 2018 Convention
and Expo, which will be held July 23-25 in
Nashville. For more information, visit
