ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. -- Chicago-Commercial Collection Agencies of America has elected its new Board of Directors and has announced the slate of officers of the organization.

Board members include Bruce Godwin of Williams, Babbit and Weisman, Inc., Meg Scotty of Brennan & Clark Ltd., Fred Wasserspring of Lyon Collection Services, Inc., Pete Roth of CST Company, George Bresler of GB Collects LLC, David Herer of ABC-Amega, Inc., and Humberto Matz of Creditors Adjustment Bureau.

The Board recently held a successful strategic planning meeting in Orlando, Florida. Along with the Executive Director, the board members developed a plan to be implemented with its membership to bring focus on not only today’s needs but anticipated organizational and industry needs in the future. Central to those efforts is to continue to fulfill the mission of the Association: to elevate the standards and uphold the professionalism in the commercial collection industry for the benefit of protecting the credit granting community.

The alignment with partners such as The Credit Research Foundation (CRF) allows a reach into that community, which is key to communicate the mission of protection. “Being a Platinum Partner and having earned the endorsement of The Credit Research Foundation cultivates an environment of interaction with credit practitioners to exhibit our rigorous certification requirements,” mentioned Annette M. Waggoner, Executive Director.

The Board created key programming and education initiatives which will fulfill another mission of the Association: to assist members in their compliance to regulations, adoption of the latest technologies and efficiency in operations.

“Commercial Collection Agencies of America is the ONLY certifying body in which all agency members are certified,” noted Bruce Godwin, President. “Credit grantors have told us how important this fact is and how it eliminates marketplace confusion,” he added.
