Education, Networking, Fun

The CLLA Conference organizers tell us, “This year’s event promises to deliver the same high quality education, networking, and fun you’ve come to expect.” Here’s what they’ve outlined for attendees:

  • Education: The Education will focus on “The Life of a File” from credit application to bad debt, including insolvency. Many sessions will qualify for Certification CEU’s.
  • Networking: Network with other industry professionals during the daily continental breakfasts and nightly cocktail parties.
  • Fun: With the great room rates we’ve negotiated for you in heart of Manhattan, make plans to stay for the weekend! Enjoy the restaurants and the fantastic shows on Broadway, all of which are just steps from the Sheraton. Spouses or guests are welcome.
