RECOGNITION

ACA Celebrates Unit Certificate
of Excellence Recipients

A

CA International has awarded
certificates of excellence to
eight ACA-affiliated state and
regional associations (units) that submitted
2017 voluntary self-audits and earned
qualifying scores. The Unit Certificate of
Excellence recognizes units in the U.S.
committed to excellence in membership,
communications, education, government
affairs and general operations.
Unit successes are due to the investment
of time and talent by many member-leader
volunteers and, in some units, local staff.
Following are the qualifying units and their
presidents as of Dec. 31, 2017:
* New York State Collectors Association
President: Jacob D. Corlyon
* Indiana Collectors Association
President: Chris Coleman
* Mid Atlantic Collectors Association
President: Harry A. Strausser III

COLLECTOR 07.18

* Great Lakes Credit and
Collections Association
President: Irwin Bernstein
* California Association of Collectors
President: Kelly Parsons-O'Brien
* Arizona Collectors Association
President: Heath Morder
* ACA of Texas
President: Steve Whigham
* Florida Collectors Association
President: David Kelley
The Unit Certificate of Excellence
self-audit is intended to spark dialogue
within units about what components make
up an "excellent" local association. Units
are the foundation of ACA International.
Commitment to quality and member
service at the state and regional level
is vital to ACA's ability to maintain its
respected position in the credit and
collection industry.
