RMA serves as the voice of the debt buying industry, representing members before federal and state agencies and in the courts. Despite a clearly challenging landscape, over the past two years RMA has maintained an unparalleled level of success:

  • RMA has had a positive outcome on every bill that we negotiated at the state level;
  • We engaged lobbyists in numerous states, and saw successes in California, Connecticut, Maine, New Hampshire, Washington, and West Virginia, to name a few;
  • We maintain a strong presence in Washington, D.C. and continue developing influential relationships with the CFPB, FTC and OCC; and
  • We are consistently educating local, state and federal policymakers on the important and critical role our industry plays in the economic cycle.
