  • What's My Practice Worth? Succession Planning, Mergers and Acquisitions: It’s never too early to start planning for tomorrow. Do you have a succession plan in place? What is your practice worth and to whom? Many attorneys start thinking about these questions once it’s too late. Whether you are considering selling, merging, or acquiring another firm, the first step is to understand how to value the business. In this session, you will receive advice from an estate planning attorney regarding the questions you should be asking yourself today to prepare for tomorrow. Also hear stories from other attorneys in the industry who have created opportunities for themselves by understanding these issues.

  • Building An Audit and Compliance Program on a Budget: By now we’ve all heard the saying, “Compliance is the new performance.” Some have lived this for years. Others know it’s just a matter of time until the regulations are imposed upon them. Learn what it takes to represent the national credit grantor. Learn how firms have responded to the new demands, and get practical tips on where to start in creating and implementing a compliance program without breaking the bank.

  • Operational Best Practices: NARCA’s May conference saw 75 operations managers, collection managers and attorneys gather for a two hour workshop session on Law Firm Collection and Operations Management Best Practices. Continuing in Chicago will be the shared results of that workshop and a chance to ask the panel and learn from your peers in a Q&A sharing format during this fast paced interactive session. Recruiting staff, communications, posting compliance, complaints vs. compliance, security, training, KPIs, auditing vendors, auditing calls, documenting procedures are all topics to be covered. You will walk away with 60 tips in 60 minutes!

  • Looking in the Crystal Ball? What does the future look like for the Debt Collection Industry?: Our industry sure doesn’t look like it did five years ago, and it certainly won’t look the same five years from now. In this rapidly changing business environment it’s adapt or die. How are you dealing with the higher costs, shrinking margins and additional regulations? Chime in on a panel discussion that includes attorneys from firms of differing sizes talk about how they are “weathering the storm” and their predictions for the future. What new opportunities are out there and how can you better adapt to change?

  • The Changing FDCPA: Legislative Reform, the CFPB’s Role, Case Law Updates and Trends: Violating the FDCPA can be costly and time consuming. Everyone who collects consumer debts must be thoroughly trained, informed, and kept abreast of changes to the Act. In today’s collection environment, change is happeningfaster than ever. This session will:

    • Discuss recent cases and trends in FDCPA litigation
    • Analyze the CFPB's Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking's impact on the Act
    • Highlight NARCA's Legislative Reform Effort
    • Review Other Significant Compliance Issues

    In this up-to-date session, attendees will learn insights to ensure their collection processes and conduct are in compliance with the Act and other debt collection regulatory rules and laws, thereby reducing their exposure and minimizing risk.
