Top DC Leaders Accept Invitations to Join ACA at Fly-In

There’s no question that 2019 will be remembered as a pivotal year in shaping regulatory policy related to the future of the accounts receivable management industry. Not only is the industry anxiously awaiting the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s new debt collection rules, but the industry has had an eagle eye on volumes of legislative activity including the much-publicized Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence (TRACED) Act.

If these issues and other policy decisions concern you, join ACA International and its advocacy team May 14-16 in the nation’s capital for the Washington Insights Fly-In.
