Receivables are always a challenge so we have a great panel of family business leaders ready to discuss how to get paid on time, every time while preserving the customer relationship. Join Kurt  Hoeft  of  Easy IT , Susan  Snyder-Hina  of  Hina Environmental Solutions , and Renee  Tyack  of  Capital-Plus  to learn what works - and what doesn't -  when dealing with A/R issues.
