Collector - September 2020 - 24

FDCPA and pop culture. Players competed
for leaderboard dominance by racking up
points, and it was all hosted by ACA board
member Rick Perr, co-managing partner
of the Philadelphia office of Kaufman
Dolowich & Voluck LLP. In the end, Jack
Gordon, CEO of WebRecon, celebrated his
win with an impressive 89% accuracy.
The happy hour also featured a silent
auction to benefit ACA's Political Action
Committee (ACPAC) Administrative Fund.
The Admin Fund supports the operating
expenses of ACPAC.

YOUR NEW BOARD OF
DIRECTORS
One of the highlights of ACA's Annual
Convention is welcoming new officers and
members to ACA's Board of Directors,
which governs the affairs, activities and
concerns of the association. The board
consists of 15 voting members with
staggered terms, plus the CEO and past
president as nonvoting members.
On July 14, ACA's Council of Delegates
elected four board members to serve threeyear terms: Dennis Barton, owner and
managing attorney of The Barton Law Group

From the Social Wall
Throughout the event,
convention attendees
were able to communicate with each other
via personal chats and
messages, as well as
on the Social Wall, a
public board where
members posted about
their experiences at the
conference. Here are
a few posts we pulled
from the Social Wall:

LLC in St. Louis, Missouri; LaDonna Bohling,
chief compliance officer for Receivable
Solutions LLC in Columbia, South Carolina;
Michael Klutho, shareholder at Bassford
Remele in Minneapolis; and Brian Watkins,
president of Southern Oregon Credit Service
Inc. in Medford, Oregon.
You can read more about each board
member on p. 30.
"The ACA Board of Directors will play
a critical role in the year ahead, leading
the association in a time of change and
helping members succeed," Neeb said. "The
new members' commitment to taking on
volunteer leadership roles is critical for the
association and the accounts receivable
management industry. I look forward
to working with the returning members
and new officers as we continue to build
momentum on the great work we've
accomplished in the last year."
The new ACA board selected Kevin Baich
as president-elect for 2020/21 and Dan
Desatnick as treasurer. Baich and Desatnick
join ACA's 2020/21 President G. Scott Purcell.
Purcell is president of Professional Credit
in Springfield, Oregon, and an enthusiastic
supporter of the accounts receivable

management industry, as well as ACA. He
believes strongly that if we don't educate
our legislators on the important role we
play in our credit-based economy, no one
else will, and then we're at risk of rules that
will hurt our businesses, consumers and the
clients we serve.
In his first speech as ACA president,
Purcell focused on the positive ways the
ARM industry benefits consumers and our
communities.
He cited statistics from the 2020
State of the Industry Report by ACA
and Kaulkin Ginsberg, which found
that in 2018, ARM firms helped save
U.S. households $706 due to lower costs
of goods and services. He highlighted
the Institute of Collection Leadership's
Collect the Truth campaign, which
shares stories from consumers about how
debt collectors have helped them. He
also gave a nod to the values emphasized
in the Collector's Pledge, which was
introduced 10 years ago by 2010/11 ACA
President Martin Sher.
Purcell encouraged ACA members
to share these positive stories and more
with legislators.
