My kids find it hard to believe that when I was in school, the place you went to find answers to your homework or to gather information for a paper was the Encyclopedia Britannica. This was several thick books with information on anything you needed, although the accuracy depended on what edition you had. My edition claimed the US had only 48 states.
The current generation has it much easier since Google came along, just enter, click and multiple results appeared with everything you needed.
Your membership in CMA and an Industry Credit Group makes it just as easy. Have a question on Chapter 11 BK; call the CMA Adjustment Bureau. Need an effective Demand Letter, go to the Encyclopedia of Credit. If it is the most current trade information on a customer, draw an anscers report or enter an RFI. Looking for accounts receivable software that is credit friendly, poll your group. Need to further your credit education, CMA has that covered.
If you utilize CMA and the Industry Credit Group as your primary search engine for all credit related issues, the results will reduce your time and expenses.
It will not be necessary to pay your corporate attorney an hourly fee for researching Bankruptcy questions that CMA can answer for free. Whose recommendation means more, salesmen trying to sell you a $100K computer system or someone in your group performing the same job as you using the system? Need to file Lien, get a D&B, place an account for collection, take a financial statement class, start your search with CMA.
You have the support of a Business Association that has been around for over 130 years. Behind each tab on the anscers home page are people waiting to assist you.
Whether you have been in credit for 30 years or 30 days, there are laws and procedures that are changing daily. CMA membership guarantees you the most current edition.
