Minimize Your CU's Exposure to Bankruptcy Losses and Collections
Friday, October 10, 2014 6:40 AM

Attend Bankruptcy & Collections Seminars Nov. 5-6 in Houston

Bankruptcies are spiking at an alarming rate. The failure to properly perfect liens on automobiles results in dire lien avoidance problems. Bankruptcy fraud continues to go unchecked. Reaffirmation agreements have changed, in form and in substance, over the last year. And seemingly harmless areas, like proofs of claims, are now exposing credit unions to serious liability. 

These problems are costing credit unions millions across the country and include automatic stay issues involving post-petition repossessions, payroll deductions, credit reporting, and other unintentional violations.

All of these issues are addressed, as well as Collections (Repossession Compliance from A to Z) at the two-day Bankruptcy and Collections Seminars.

When:  Nov. 5-6, 2014
