In late 2018, Commercial Collection Agencies of America formed a group aptly named YPIC-Young Professionals in Collections. This talented group of collection agency representatives, creditors' rights attorneys and law list publishers represented not only the respected triadic system of our industry, but the younger generation who have chosen the collection field as their career.

Recently, the Association surveyed its young professionals on a myriad of topics-from their educational background to their five (5) benefits or perks they look for while job searching. The YPICs shared main reasons for staying at their current employers, while also opining on what is beneficial in their professional development. The survey shed light on a number of different planes.

The YPIC group collaborates on a regular basis and is looking forward to presenting an educational session at the Association's annual meeting in Delray Beach in October. In March 2019, the YPIC presented its inaugural education session at the Association's semi-annual meeting. Three panelists and a moderator enlightened the conference attendees (of all ages) how to network and sell oneself, while building a brand, with specific emphasis on the credit and collection industry.

The Association is looking forward to the continued involvement of the talented group!
