A message to former CCAA agency members:

The strength of an organization is its members. In its 42-year history, CCAA earned a reputation of an Association with upstanding, cooperative members who worked to provide credit professionals with the highest level of service in the commercial debt collection industry, while working together in committees and councils to offer stellar education and networking opportunities for its members.

With the same charge, Commercial Collection Agencies of America, Inc. will endeavor to continue that tradition and looks forward to welcoming you as a member for what will be year 43 for some of our members!

The new organization is incorporated as a non-profit 501(c) (6) entity in the state of Illinois and offers its members an unparalleled certification program recognized by the credit and collection industry worldwide. Commercial Collection Agencies of America, Inc. is the only collection agency-certifying body in which ALL of its members are certified. The new organization's marketing materials will stress that ALL members are certified, thus eliminating confusion in the marketplace.

Commercial Collection Agencies of America has reached out to alliance partners in the industry, including NACM and Credit Research Foundation, and will be exhibiting at each group's upcoming expositions. In addition, a press release is being sent to over 5,000 credit and collection professionals explaining the debut of the organization. Commercial Collection Agencies of America will continue to offer the excellent education former CCAA members have become accustomed to and benefited from during meetings and webinars. Full slates of interesting and relevant topics, in a wide variety of areas, await new members.

In addition, the organization will have frequent opportunities to meet in person and network with the creditors' rights attorneys and law list representatives. These affiliate members have had long-standing relationships with agency members and the new organization will create a positive atmosphere where old and new relationships can grow and be cultivated.
