With the turning of the calendar to the New Year, I always like to evaluate my relationships and reflect on the year that has just past. In doing that in 2018, I can’t help but think about the many ways that Credit Management Association (CMA) makes my job as a credit manager easier.
Here are some reasons that are important to me as a CMA member:
- CMA continues to bring the credit community together via networking at Industry Credit Group meetings (my company and I are regular participants) and at educational events such as CreditScape and other webinars and programs.
- CMA’s anscers.com website platform is unique in that it allows me to obtain past payment history of customers that also do business with other CMA member companies.
- CMA also offers extremely competitive pricing on credit reporting contracts with the major credit bureaus. They also have a professional staff that can walk you through the best features of each report, enabling you to compare similar products so that you can choose the best ones for your company’s needs.
- If your company supplies materials or labor for construction projects, CMA can make sure that your company’s lien rights are protected under the law through its construction lien filing department.
CMA is here to stay. It has been providing high-end credit services and education to companies like yours throughout California and Nevada for over a century and it plans on continuing this service for years to come. As CMA Chairman of the Board, I thank you for your continued support of CMA and its vision of a united credit community and I would also like to thank the staff of CMA for their dedication to the members of CMA.
