10. 28. 14

 

Commercial Collection Agencies of America announced at its recently held inaugural meeting, a decision was made to donate a portion of the proceeds of the meeting to the local Florida chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.
 
“Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back will be a recurring initiative of the organization, as it intends on making a donation to a local chapter of a charitable organization at each of our meetings,” commented Annette M. Waggoner, Executive Director.
 
Overwhelming support was offered by members as the idea was launched at the general membership meeting. When members were asked for ideas of charitable organizations to receive future donations, enthusiastic members offered their suggestions.
 
“As a group, and as individuals, we are very fortunate and we believe that this type of program can lend support to other organizations and individuals who are in great need,” commented Meg Scotty, a founding director of Commercial Collection Agencies of America.
 
After the meeting, several members even offered that their individual companies would match the donation from the Commercial Collection Agencies of America Gives Back initiative.
 
“This type of novel idea fits the whole persona of Commercial Collection Agencies of America. We are thinking outside the box, not only when it relates to our internal structure, but also when it comes to our programing. To make our organization thrive, including initiatives such as this one, takes dedicated member support and we are very fortunate to have such commitment,” commented Pete Roth, a member of the Board of Directors.
 
Commercial Collection Agencies of America was formed in May, 2014 by members who have been in the debt collection industry for decades, many of whom have been certified for over forty-three (43) years. Membership is growing at a rapid pace, as collection agencies, creditors’ rights attorneys and law list representatives seek an organization whose membership embody four pillars: experience, expertise, ethics and education.
 
Members work to elevate the standards of the industry and restore billions of dollars back into the US economy on behalf of their commercial clients each year. Collection agency members qualify for membership by meeting rigorous certification requirements set by an independent standards board and adhering to a strict code of ethics. Each member of Commercial Collection Agencies of America is certified, a distinguishing characteristic of the organization when compared to other certifying bodies.
