What our members say...

"They tell me I am one of the 'Old Timers' in credit management and as such, always seem to ask me for 'my job description'.  I always say that is easy, 'maximize sales and minimize losses'.  Sounds simple and IT IS if you use all of the credit 'tools' at your disposal.

One of the essential tools for me is my membership in NACM.  They can and do provide just about any tool you will need to make your work much easier and less stressful.  One of the best tools for me is the Credit Group I meet with monthly.  Imagine having real time monthly updates on shared customers? Priceless!"
