NACM SOUTHWEST MERGES WITH NACM GULF STATES
 
A long-standing vision of creating a unified association serving all of the NACM members of Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi Gulf Coast and Southern New Mexico is here! NACM Gulf States and NACM Southwest have merged together, creating the largest credit association in the South. We believe that leveraging the commonality and strengths of NACM Southwest and NACM Gulf States by joining the two associations will greatly enhance your NACM experience and network.
 
Just imagine: one association bringing you a wider choice of industry credit groups with a deeper membership base, supplying you with fresher and more relevant data on every credit report, supporting you with a single (larger!) voice on state legislative matters, providing you with a successful, known third party collections team, and giving you access to a greater, more diverse network of educational opportunities and social events - all of this while maintaining a strong local presence – just as you have now. There is work to be done and we are excited to roll up our sleeves and get busy for you.  
 
NACM was formed to prevent fraud in business transactions over a century ago, today NACM Southwest can boast that it is currently the third largest affiliate in the National Association of Credit Management's national network, which has over 32 locations across the country. We are dedicated to serving our business-to-business credit granting community by offering quality products and services at a fair price. Our motivation is helping you mitigate risk and maximize profits.
 
Your NACM team members in Dallas, Houston, New Orleans, and Shreveport are standing by ready to assist you with your credit and collection needs. Our success is measured by your success!
 
The members of NACM are Stronger Together!
