Collector.Live! 2020: Home Edition Raises More Than $20,000 for COVID-19 First Responders

The organizers of Collector.Live! presented a $20,661 donation to the charitable organization Direct Relief from funds raised by the debt collection industry following Collector.Live! 2020: Home Edition, which took place April 21.

The event, hosted by Vice President of Business Development at Applied Innovation Harry Strausser, brought together 21 of the collection industry’s top speakers, trainers and thinkers. It also included a special fireside chat with the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s Assistant Director of Consumer Lending, Reporting and Collections Markets John McNamara, who discussed the many ways the world of collection activity changed in connection to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers of Collector.Live! Home Edition solicited contributions from sponsors and directly from the hundreds of viewers who tuned in for the livestream event. Direct Relief received 100% of the proceeds from the event.

“We are overwhelmed at the response from across the credit and collection industry,” said Jack Gordon, the CEO of WebRecon and one of the organizers of Collector.Live! Home Edition. “It is a testament to the tremendous generosity and altruism of the professionals who call this industry home.”

Direct Relief works in the U.S. and internationally to equip doctors and nurses with life-saving medical resources to care for the world's most vulnerable people. This contribution was specifically earmarked to help provide Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and other essential resources to frontline caregivers in coronavirus hotspots.

The event speakers included Ken Peck from RGS, Irene Hoheusle from ARSI, Nicole Strickler from Messer Strickler, John Bedard from Bedard Law Group, Dennis Barton from The Barton Law Group, Leadership Communication Coach Sylvia Larrass, Greg Ruffino from Williams & Fudge, Kelli Krueger from ACA International, Michael Klutho from Bassford Remele, Elizabeth Conklin from State Collection Service, Ron Brown from ConSec Investigations, Manuel Newburger from Barron & Newburger, Kelly Knepper-Stephens and Tim Collins from TrueAccord, LaDonna Bohling from Receivable Solutions, Roger Weiss from CACi and ACA International’s board president, Garret Angelo from JJ Marshall, David Kaminski from Carlson Messer, Leslie Bender from BCA Financial Services, Gordon Beck from Valor Intelligent Processing, Mary Shores from Midstate Collection Solutions, and John McNamara from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.
