FALL 2013 WISCONSIN COLLECTORS ASSOCIATION MEETING
October 14-16, 2013 – MADISON CONCOURSE HOTEL, MADISON
The annual Wisconsin Collectors Association Fall Conference is scheduled for October 14-16, 2013 in Madison and we want to see you there! The registration materials and agenda for the conference are linked below – please pass them along to anyone else within your organization who may wish to attend. Please be aware of the registration deadline of September 25.
Key topics during this Fall’s conference include various discussions related to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, an attorney panel covering current legal issues that affect you, and an update from the Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions including a conversation with DFI Secretary Peter Bildsten.
As part of this Fall’s agenda, we have set aside Tuesday afternoon to visit the Capitol and meet with our elected officials. As you may be aware, WCA currently has a bill in draft with Representative Thiesfeldt to change post judgment interest back to 12%. While our lobbyists, The Capitol Group, are working to help get this bill through the Legislature, we need a serious grass roots effort from our membership to get the bill passed. We encourage all attendees to meet with their legislators while in Madison. Don’t worry, The Capitol Group will prepare us before the meetings so no one goes in blind. WCA’s Legislative Committee is all set to begin scheduling appointments – all we need from you are the names of your Representative and Senator. If you do not know this information, simply provide your home address or your agency location and we’ll be sure to connect you with the right individuals. This information can be included on the registration form or sent separately to this email address (wcaexecutivesecretary@gmail.
