Get practical answers to tricky questions
Stop spinning your wheels; use time more effectively
For anyone who has ever sat in a meeting and wondered, "How are other companies handling this?" If you need help with the day-to-day issues that crop up in your business, Research Assistant is equipped to guide you.
Leaders, why let your team spin their wheels speculating about grey areas in the law or constantly shifting compliance rules? Give them the most cost-effective resource available.
Consumer Relations Consortium
Your seat at the table
A membership group for forward-thinking organizations that wish to influence the direction of collections compliance, legal strategy and regulatory policy. Members engage with regulators, consumer groups and other stakeholders to produce common-sense solutions that benefit consumers, creditors and servicers.
Strategy & Tech
A membership group where forward-thinking credit issuers, tech companies, and accounts receivable organizations envision the future and map how to get there. Operations, strategy and tech leaders meet in person twice a year and also engage in collaborative projects throughout the year to solve industry challenges.
Women & Diversity
Women in Consumer Finance
Because your career matters, and so does the satisfaction of all your high-potential female employees
Women in Consumer Finance is an event and community for women at all levels in the context of a common industry. If you work in any role at a lender, creditor, servicer, law firm, technology or service provider, or regulator, this event is for you. We provide inspiration, a guiding hand, and a support system women can leverage to continuously recharge their careers and deliver value to their employers.
WCF is not about compliance, best practices, or even finance. It's about women, our common professional challenges, and how to tell our own career story – no matter where we are on our professional journey. We take a unique approach to building confidence, connection, and careers. There is nothing else like it.
Our 5th annual event will happen December 5-7, 2022 in Palm Springs, CA.
