Day 1: Collections—Repossessions A to Z: The Ultimate Repossession Training

This day-long training seminar covers all of the key legal issues impacting delinquent vehicle loans, repossessions, and the disposition of collateral. Credit union collectors must know the law and have the right forms, letters, policies and procedures in place in order to avoid potential liability for their credit union. Attendees will learn how to identify and spot any operational errors and correct them with proper repossessions procedures and forms before their credit union gets sued.

Collectors of all experience levels will benefit from this seminar and all collectors will emerge from this day long training knowing precisely what not to do, what to do, and how to do it.

Day 2: Bankruptcy

With nearly 800,000 bankruptcies filed in 2017, never has it been more important for credit unions to refocus on bankruptcy training, an aggressive assertion of credit union rights in the bankruptcy courts, fighting bankruptcy fraud, and ensuring compliance with the bankruptcy automatic stay and discharge injunction. Without a sound knowledge of member bankruptcies at your credit union, the credit union will miss many opportunities for recoveries, and at the same time will be exposed to the potential for real liability.

These seminars will be an in depth examination of credit union best practices when a member bankruptcy notice arrives including areas such as:

  • Successful handling of Texas Chapter 13 member bankruptcies;
  • Critical proof-of-claim procedures, forms, redaction, and more;
  • Reaffirmation advice, including forms completion and negotiation with debtors and debtor’s counsel;
  • Key collateral recovery methods, including dealing with the automatic stay in bankruptcy; and
  • Many more issues critical to credit unions in particular.

Who should attend? Presidents, CEOs, managers, loan officers, credit committee members, volunteers, collection officers, compliance officers, and any other credit union staff responsible for minimizing the credit union's exposure to bankruptcy losses, collections, or lenders in general would benefit from these seminars.
