August 10, 2017 (Sacramento, CA) – Receivables Management Association International (RMA) hosted a successful Executive Summit last week in Lake Tahoe, California. The annual event is designed to be a networking opportunity for owners and top managers in the accounts receivables management (ARM) industry.
This year’s Executive Summit boasted 125 attendees from a wide range of ARM-industry companies. The intimate nature of the Resort at Squaw Creek proved to be an ideal venue for networking, as participants naturally encountered one another among the restaurants, corridors, and decks. While many golfers were humbled by the challenging course on Tuesday, all were impressed by the scenic views surrounding them.
“The Summit had a great concentration of top players and decision-makers in the industry, including the regulators and those that know them,” shared attendee Craig Antico. “Great networking and relationship building was done at this Summit.”
Among the most well-attended education sessions was The FinTech Market, which provided an in-depth look into the different business models, funding resources, and the regulatory environment for FinTech companies.
“Financial technology is steadily encroaching on the market share of traditional lending institutions,” said Mark Naiman, RMA Board President. “The ARM industry is eager to stay informed on emerging lending sources, which was underscored by the full attendance at the FinTech education session.” RMA looks forward to continuing to offer the hottest education topics via its webinar series and at its Annual Conference in February 2018.
“One of my takeaways from the Summit was the value of RMA,” said attendee Isaac Goldman. “I am going to meet with my team to discuss joining a committee, pursuing Certification, and generally becoming a more active member of RMA.”
RMA’s affiliate members were eager to show their support of the membership by sponsoring events, giveaways, and meals. These companies demonstrated admirable commitment to the education, legislative support, and business health of the entire receivables management industry.
