It's what makes NACM work

A note from Jon Flora, President & CEO

A few short weeks ago, we welcomed the 2016 NACM Western Region Credit Conference to Seattle.  Based on the follow-up evaluations, it was viewed as a great success.  Almost 32% of the attendees have responded so far and there are a few common denominators in the comments.   Most who attended say they learned a lot, met new people, and felt this was one of the best regional conferences in years.  Moreover, they were grateful for the overall experience they had at WRCC.

Our staff shares that final sentiment, too.   We are grateful for your participation.  It taught us more about what you want to learn and what we can do to make that happen.  All of us also enjoyed meeting a lot of new people.

We are also grateful for the experience we had hosting a regional conference involving 200+ people.  We learned a lot and, if called upon to host again, we will be able to do an even better job for you.

One of our goals for WRCC was to raise the bar for credit conferences by having new speakers, new topics and new ways to help you expand your professional network.  I think we achieved this and I thank you for helping make the conference a big success.

Using some of our new found knowledge, we will be trying some new ideas for upcoming local seminars in Alaska and Hawaii.  Please note that these local presentations are open to all members, not just those in the particular area.  So, if you plan to be Anchorage in December or Hawaii in February, come join us!  The more the merrier!  See the boxes below for more information.

Here's to a great fall - no matter your favorite football team's mascot!  It's a fun time of year and I hope you take time to enjoy it.  And, as always, thanks for being part of NACM Businesss Credit Services.
