The Council of Delegates held its annual meeting at ACA International’s 2017 Convention & Expo in Seattle.


ACA International’s Council of Delegates elected five ACA members to the Board of Directors on Sunday, July 16 as part of the 2017 Convention & Expo in Seattle.

Joining the board for three-year terms are:

  • Albert Cadena, president and CEO of USCB America in Los Angeles, Calif.

Individuals re-elected to another term are:

  • Mike Frost, chief legal officer and general counsel at The CBE Group Inc. in Cedar Falls, Iowa.
  • Jim Richards, chairman of Capio Partners in Lawrenceville, Ga.
  • Roger Weiss, IFCCE, chief operating officer at CACi in St. Louis, Mo.

“It’s a privilege to welcome Albert and Scott as new board members,” said ACA International CEO Patrick J. Morris. “Each individual serving on ACA’s Board of Directors helps further the association’s mission, which is to contribute to the success of its members and the positive reputation of the credit and collection industry.”

The newly elected Board of Directors held its first meeting later in the day Sunday, where the group elected Jack W. Brown III as ACA’s president-elect. Brown is president of Gulf Coast Collection Bureau Inc., of Sarasota, Fla. Meanwhile, the board elected Weiss as the new treasurer.

The ACA Council of Delegates, elected by the units and divisions, represents constituencies and has the primary responsibility of electing the ACA Board of Directors. The Council of Delegates will hold its next meeting July 23, 2018, at the ACA International Convention & Expo in Nashville, Tenn.
