“My association with NACM has extended over the past 25 years and I’ve found their services to be invaluable when making well informed risk management decisions. NACM brings together a forum of like-minded credit professionals willing to share their experiences and collaborate on a multitude of business topics. It is this “ease of operation” approach which has allowed me to make quick, pragmatic credit decisions that have a direct correlation to my bottom-line. I believe any company entering into today’s business environment without partnering with NACM will find themselves at a severe disadvantage.”Bill Thompson
NACM Connect always provides me with tools and knowledge that I can put to use in my Credit career. The seminars offer relaxed and not forced networking opportunities. The networking has allowed me to form business relationships with other credit professioanls. We share ideas on how to resolve the same struggles we experience in a more effective and efficient manner. I rely on all educational opportunities at NACM Connect to provide me with innovative methods to bring back to the office. I value the relationships that are formed and it is evident that they are most advantageous for my career.Allison Wells, CBA
“By participating in the roundtable discussions my staff is seeing how other companies handle the same day to day issues that we do and not only could they pick up some advice on how to possibly do something better, but also feel good when we can advise someone else how to improve something that we do differently. I am very pleased with the follow up and organization of the credit professionals in our area and feel they are doing many things that the area has not had in several years.”Ron Sereika, CCE, CEW
“NACM Connect is my go-to resource for obtaining credit information on my customers, as well as monitoring them. Sharing information with my customers’ common suppliers through my Industry Credit Group is the very best means of getting information to help me make real-time credit decisions. Other educational and networking events, including the social outings, keep me in touch with credit managers throughout the region.”Jim Welser
