CU Collection Consortium Begins New Season 

The CU Collection Consortium, a group of collections and lending professionals, will kick off its 2013-14 season in a big way on Wednesday Oct. 9 with a discussion on foreclosure alternatives, a subject near and dear to everyone’s bottom line.  David Wolfe and Mike Rich, well-known attorneys from Weltman, Weinberg and Reis, will give the presentation and take questions.

The meeting will be at Genisys CU, 2100 Executive Drive in Auburn Hills from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. The meeting is free and open to all interested parties. Monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday of each month through April and the May meeting consists of the annual MCUL’s Collector Training School. Regular monthly meetings require no reservations. For directions or more information, call Peggy Dombrowski at (248) 322-9800, ext. 1300.

The consortium was founded in 1993 by four collection managers and has continued over the years providing free educational and networking opportunities. The list of past speakers includes well-known names ranging from Judge Steven Rhodes, David Trott, Chuck Holzman, Karin Brown, Harry Strausser, Ken and John Butler, bankruptcy trustees David Ruskin and Gene Kohut and many more distinguished experts in their fields.
