Subscribers to ACA International’s Guide to State Collection Laws & Practices now get more bang for their buck each month with the introduction of the State Guide Cohort, a collaborative subscribers-only community through which ACA staff, industry attorneys and agency compliance experts can share information about state statutes, regulations and state-specific judicial decisions.

ACA’s State Guide has long been one of the association’s most popular compliance tools. It contains a curated collection of ARM-industry-relevant state laws and related materials that impact debt collection and business operations. ACA’s compliance team sends out updates once a month to help subscribers work within state laws quickly, efficiently and compliantly.

The new State Guide cohort held its inaugural webinar—open only to subscribers—in October. During these monthly webinars, which are held the second Tuesday of each month, ACA’s compliance team highlights recent changes to state laws and regulations; discusses changes they expect to have the greatest impact on member operations; reviews recent changes to state laws that have proved problematic for members; and answers your questions when possible.

The next webinar will be held on Tuesday, Dec. 13, 1-1:30 pm CT.

In addition to the monthly electronic updates, State Guide Cohort subscribers also receive:

  • Face-to-Face Sessions
    Throughout the year, ACA will host a variety of face-to-face discussions exclusively for State Guide subscribers to participate in panel discussions, tackling real-time state laws and practices.
  • Access to an Exclusive HUB Group
    Connect with your State Guide peers! The Hub is an ACA members-only online community that gives you a private place to ask questions and make valuable industry connections.
  • Locked-Down ACA Daily News Articles
    Once a month, ACA’s compliance team will publish articles in ACA Daily for State Guide subscribers that provide timely analysis of the ever-evolving landscape of state laws and regulations.
  • Monthly Webinar
    Held the second Tuesday of each month, this collaborative, subscribers-only webinar connects attendees with ACA staff, industry attorneys, and agency compliance experts, who share information about state statutes, regulations and state-specific judicial decisions.
