The Association of Settlement Companies today announced three of its board of directors will lead a four-part workshop on debt settlement at the Source Media Financial Services Collections & Credit Risk Conference, held Oct. 18-20 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
Vice President Dave Leuthold, Legislative Director Wesley Young and Executive Board Member Teresa Schumann-Dodson will present on Sunday "Understanding the Debt Settlement Industry and Leveraging Debt Settlement Accounts to Increase Recoveries in a Distressed Economy," split up as follows:
- Schumann-Dodson will give an overview on the debt settlement industry in part one;
- Leuthold will explain how TASC is working to protect consumers through self-regulation and governance of debt settlement companies in part two;
- Young will provide a state and federal legislative update in part three; and
- All three will be joined by four others to discuss leveraging debt settlement as a recovery channel in part four.
"We're looking forward to explaining how debt settlement remains not only a reliable option for consumers in debt, but also for creditors as well," Leuthold said. "For example, our industry returned $2.2 billion last year to creditors."
