Associated Collection Agencies,
Members can take advantage
of the many resources available including a strong education program. Because the collection industry is extremely regulated
by both the federal and state government, it is important for industry members to be in compliance with existing laws as well
as informed about legislative updates. ACA offers information and schools on compliance issues as well as techniques and information
on how agencies can manage their offices more efficiently and be more profitable.
Associated Collection Agencies, Inc. has established
a strong legislative presence in both Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico. This allows the collection industry to have a voice
in government. ACA has successfully introduced and passed legislation as well as helped to defeat legislation unfriendly to
the collection industry. Colorado contracts with a full time Lobbyist, The Capstone Group. Members have the satisfaction of
knowing that their interests are being well represented at the legislative level.
The benefits of membership are many, but perhaps the most important benefit is the opportunity for
members to interact with each other and share information on an informal level. The annual convention each summer offers a terrific forum for members to talk shop, renew old friendships and have some fun at the same time.
While it is true that ACA members are actually competitors, this group has learned that by pooling their many resources, both
the collection industry and its members are beneficiaries many times over.
