About This Webinar:
This webinar focuses on the nuts and bolts of an effective collections program. The current credit crunch is having a negative impact on many credit union members. Is your collections staff ready to help both the member and the credit union weather the storm? Now, more than ever, communication is the key to an effective collections strategy. A good collector will fashion a win/win scenario with each interaction. Join us for an interactive, operationally focused session that builds on practical experience and provides creative tools for assisting members in financial need, while creating a more effective collections process within the credit union.
This session will cover:
> What makes people pay;
> Identifying your credit union’s “value proposition”;
> Prioritizing collection efforts;
> Pre-contact preparation;
> Essential elements of a collections phone call; and
> Dealing with difficult members.
