Education and Networking a huge value at the 120th Credit Congress

Where - Las Vegas, Nevada, Caesar's Palace Convention Center - a fabulous venue for the expansion of our minds and bellies (or maybe that was just this reporter.) Next year Credit Congress will be Dallas,Texas, so plan ahead with those budgets for 2017. Read full article 

The Awful Six Letter Word
by Shane Inglesby, CCE, Geneva Rock Products, Inc.

Change. No one lives for it yet, without it, progress is impossible. Quite a contradiction. The mere mention of the word can send shudders up our spine.

The Conference Board, a business research association, conducted a survey in 2012 and found that more than half of all US workers were estimated to be unhappy in their jobs, an all-time low. On a global scale, research by Gallup in late 2013 showed 87% of the world's workers are either not engaged in their jobs or have become actively disengaged. Read full article 
Loose Lips Sink Ships
by Allen Vickers, CCE, A & K Railroad Materials, Inc.

Is it possible to be right and still be wrong (other than in marriage)? In the 2016 NACM National Credit Congress session "Loose Lips Sink Ships," Val Venable, CCE and Bruce Nathan, Esq. mentioned a situation that ultimately cost some credit people their jobs even after the court found them innocent of Anti-Trust violations. There was insufficient collusion among the credit group members to be found guilty but their companies had to spend millions defending the questionable comments and actions of their credit people. Read full article
