As The World Turns

by Penny Williams, Chairman, 2010 - 2011 NACM BCS Board of Directors

I never would have believed 37 years ago this month (Yes, I mean 37 years ago) I was hired on at Midwest Floor Coverings, Inc. as a billing clerk, and today I am the Credit Manager with a staff of four. None of this would have been possible if my first boss hadn't pushed me out of my comfort zone into a position that I believe I was totally unqualified to handle. For some reason he believed in me more than I believed in myself. Not wanting to let him down and knowing I knew nothing about credit, I began looking for places and people to help me progress. That's when I found NACM and ICEL. Both have been life savers! Without them, I would not be where I am today. Besides providing education, they also provide great networking among colleagues and have been the key to the number of great friends I have today.

Again, I have been asked to move out of my comfort zone at the same time the weak economy forces us to look at new approaches to credit and collection. What worked in the past when times were good does not necessarily mean it will work today. View full article

You don't have to fight and die for NACM, Just volunteer to serve on a committee and see how much YOU will gain

by Allen Vickers, CCE, A & K Railroad Materials

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it... The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, 'Good morning Alex.'

'Good morning Pastor', he replied, still focused on the plaque. 'Pastor, what is this?'

The pastor said, 'Well son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.'

Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked,

Which service...the 9:00 or the 11:00 one?"

Even though I have yet to see anyone fight or die in the service of N.A.C.M., it is an organization that offers many opportunities for its members to serve other members. It is truly an organization that relies heavily on its members and the many contributions that they make.

There are countless ways in which members can serve each other, either through committees, boards, groups, ICEL, seminars, or most of all, through regular participation at events. View full article
