On November 28, CMA’s seven Central Valley Industry Credit Groups enjoyed hearing from two quality speakers at the Joint Agriculture Credit Group meeting in Fresno.
Danny Koolhaas, Senior Vice President and Director of Wells Fargo’s Agriculture Services Team led a discussion on the formulas banks utilize to evaluate dairies and cattle ranches when establishing credit lines and the red flags that indicate potential payment problems.
Mary Campbell, Southern California Agricultural Mediation Program (CALAMP) Coordinator, explained how the mediation process can be an effective tool in resolving disputes, and provided an interactive activity to increase listening and response skills.
Prior to the account discussion, CMA President Kim Lamberty, CAE, unveiled the NEW CMA Agriculture Network linking all the Central Valley groups together for alerts and RFI clearances. CMA Group Members can use the network free until May 2019, after May 1st the cost will be $19.99 or $9.99 for full A/R contributors!
For companies who do business in the agricultural space, we invite you to contact CMA to learn more about the new Group and how it can provide you with factual credit data about your agriculture customers at 702-259-2622 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
