How Certification = My New Career

Like most everyone in the business credit profession, I 'fell into' credit.

NACM, The National Association of Credit Management, was right there to help me get started and I became Corp. Credit Manager for Altos Computer Systems in Calif. I was so enthused with how NACM was helping me! Our company sales grew quickly from $230K annual to $150M - - and my skills needed to consistently be at least one step ahead.

Eventually what I really wanted to do was work for NACM directly to help other professionals. It looked like more fun. We moved to Florida and NACM of Florida gave me the opportunity. It WAS more fun and I learned a variety of new skills earning my CBA, CBF, CCE and CEW.

While helping members, monitoring, and forming new groups, I quickly discovered an interest in marketing and communications. There are so many things "to do" within NACM. I began designing the marketing materials, newsletter and created their new Website in 1994.

After being promoted to Director of Communications I realized that NACM Affiliate mid-level marketing managers needed an "idea sharing" group, tailored after the Industry Credit Group (but without the antitrust issues). We got the "go ahead" and the ARC, Affiliates Resource Cooperative was formed.

By this time the Internet was growing so fast it became apparent that I would need to focus "full time" if I had any hopes of keeping up. I formed "EyeCatcher" Technology in 1994 and broke out on my own to seek my fortune.

I LOVE my new work and am still surprised that every step taken during my credit career has led me to HERE. What everyone says about Certification is true. It helps build self-respect, respect of our peers and demonstrates our ability to "stick to it" and do our job well! What's so amazing to me is that I'm still able to use all of my past skills to help credit professionals and work with NACM Affiliates.
