I been coming for several years and is a great way to stay connected with peers in the industry and keep learning.

Understanding Bankruptcy Credit Reporting is vital. This workshop helps explain it so we can understand it. Some of it just doesn’t make sense when you read it on a piece of paper. 

I am so happy to have the advanced workshop back – it has been a long 3 years since we had the ability to attend!

The things most valuable to me were the time dedicated to detail – reviewing specific fields and what is required and how they interact. I really enjoyed the break out sessions and the logical/illogical scenarios.

Everyone in the credit reporting environment should attend one of the Workshops- it really should be mandatory!

I’m looking forward to utilizing the information and knowledge gained to review and revise our own internal policies and procedures.
