Joe Adams, Managing Principal of the Hampton Pryor Group, LLC has been chosen to give the Keynote address at the American Gas Association' s Uncollectibles Workshop. This year the conference will be held on October 6-7 at the Hilton Burlington Hotel in Burlington, Vermont.
'I'm honored to be asked to set the tone of the conference' stated Mr. Adams, a well known and respected 25 year veteran of the accounts receivable management industry. The title of his talk, Navigating Credit Risk in These Turbulent Times, will cover the credit and collections challenges that currently exist, while offering strategies to increase customer payments. 'While the country is showing signs of an economic recovery, we are still operating in an environment of record unemployment and home foreclosures' continues Mr. Adams.
States Jim Linn, Staff Executive at the AGA, "The objective of the conference is to learn about recent techniques to address uncollectible accounts, to share information with industry colleagues and to achieve lower uncollectible accounts at the attendee's utility. We are looking forward to hearing Joe's experience and wisdom to assist in understanding the issue of uncollectible accounts and how to address this issue with local utilities."
