The Branding Arc team looks forward to Receivables Management Association International (RMAI’s) 2021 Executive Summit, August 2nd – 4th at The Lodge at Spruce Peak in Stowe, Vermont. We are excited to connect with RMAI members and spend two and a half days staying current with industry knowledge and sharing insights with fellow receivables professionals.
A Panel of Industry Expertise
Branding Arc CEO and RMAI President Elect, Adam Parks, will kick off the conference with an important and relevant panel discussion focused on data privacy. Joined by Patrick Lausen from Convergence Acquisitions, LLC and Dara Tarkowski from Actuate Law, LCC, Adam will highlight how data privacy has recently evolved, including the application of CCPA. Migrating to a work-from-home model and the increase and impact of cyber-crime during the COVID crisis are other topics that will be presented.
The panel will cover recent changes and the best practices that have been developed and implemented by debt buyers, collection agencies, and law firms. The panel will also share insight regarding risk and compliance, and highlight technology associated with data privacy concerns. The session may help to reevaluate internal processes or spark ideas among participants on how to improve upon their current plans. This opening session is certainly one that attendees should add to their conference agendas.
Engagement Through Marketing and Branding
We have a passion for helping businesses in the Accounts Receivable Management (ARM) industry position their brand, through their website and digital marketing tools to increase customer engagement and drive bottom-line revenue. Branding Arc’s Director of Content, Eryn Fiondella, will be available during the Executive Summit to discuss website needs, reputation management, ADA Compliance, enhancing your customer and employee experience, and maybe a visit to the Ben & Jerry’s Factory…
The Executive Summit is a platform to harness the collective knowledge of leaders in all facets of the receivables industry. “There is so much energy surrounding this upcoming event and I’m anxious to be part of it,” says Eryn. “The business development and educational sessions will be top-notch. I feel lucky to be surrounded by the greatest minds and innovative thinkers in the receivables industry at my first RMAI Executive Summit. This group of colleagues offer a welcoming, inclusive environment to discuss the issues impacting us all the most. I know, without question, we’re all going to have a great time, too!”
Supporting Education and Professional Certification
The Branding Arc team has already made plans to meet friends we made at the Annual Conference this past April and reconnect in-person with some contacts we have not seen since the 2019 Executive Summit in Sedona. Our clients and industry partners rely on us to stay current with legal, legislative, and regulatory updates, and new industry trends to provide successful outcomes for their business.
Our company culture is based on our positive attitude and commitment to continual improvement. When searching for talent to add to our dynamic Branding Arc team, we offer open positions to candidates that share our core values and have a personal commitment to lifelong learning. Participating and attending events, like the Executive Summit, keep us informed through educational sessions and genuine, productive conversations with industry experts. We encourage all our friends and colleagues to earn the required education credits to pursue or renew their RMAI certification.
The Value of Sponsorship and Support
The RMAI Board of Directors and the Executive Summit 2021 Sponsors demonstrate a huge commitment and contribution to bringing us all together for such an informative and collaborative event. The inclusiveness of family and friends along with the ease of registration and incredible venue has opened a chance to travel for many who may not have otherwise had an opportunity. These accommodations display just one of the many ways that truly demonstrate our industry’s ability to be extremely resilient to change while championing professional and ethical business practices and providing unrivaled networking opportunities. To celebrate all that we have achieved and our limitless future success, we highly recommend joining us at the Mountain Club Course for golf, sponsored by RMAI “Certified Receivables Business,” Crown Asset Management. We are so proud to be part of such a passionate membership base and look forward to welcoming new members and conference attendees.
