Chairman’s Newsletter: Greetings from the New Chairperson!, by Tracy Rosenbach

Greetings! I am excited and honored to serve as your new CMA Chairperson. For those of you who don’t know me I’ve been a credit manager for 20+ years and a CMA member since December 1995. The challenges I face at work are likely the same ones you do: trying to manage credit risk; doing more with less; and trying to stay current with the latest trends in credit management in a changing industry.

Speaking of change our Credit Management Association (CMA) has begun a new chapter in its history with the move to the new office in Glendale. The association is working hard toward positioning itself for the future. We as credit managers need to be a part of that transition. We are fortunate to have CMA as a professional resource in turn we have the responsibility to give back to the association through volunteering. By volunteering we help to strengthen the association and shape it to the current needs of local credit managers. I encourage you to reach out in your local industry groups as well as call CMA to see how you can be a part of a much storied institution. Volunteer opportunities can include, but are not limited to, being an industry group leader, serving on a CMA committee or serving on the CMA board. We encourage your participation and need your input.

What’s Coming Up

To stay current in the credit management profession, there are a couple of wonderful opportunities for education coming up. In June we have the NACM Credit Congress in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace and in September CMA will be hosting Fall CreditScape in Sonoma. I have always felt that education is an important component to progressing in our profession which is why I worked toward and obtained my CCE designation several years ago. I encourage you to take a look at these offerings and support your association by participating and becoming engaged in its activities.

I look forward to serving you this year. Best regards,

Tracy Rosenbach
