BCCA, the media industry's credit association, has scheduled a full-day seminar focusing on high level credit-related issues for the media industry's credit professionals, including those serving its magazine, newspaper, television, radio, cable, out-of-home, interactive and digital media segments.
The BCCA Media Credit Seminar is scheduled for Tuesday, November 7, at the offices of Lowenstein Sandler LLP, 1251 Ave of the Americas, in Midtown Manhattan.
Details on the seminar's sessions and expert presenters will be released in the coming weeks. In addition to the formal sessions, the event serves as an opportunity for media credit professionals and executives from across the country to come together to share ideas and best practices for the ever-changing media credit and collections function.
"The annual BCCA Media Credit Seminar in New York is designed to help the industry's media credit professionals ensure they are ready to turn the coming year's challenges into opportunities that improve the financial performance of their businesses," said Mary M. Collins, President & CEO of BCCA and MFM, the Media Financial Management Association. "Thanks to the guidance of our BCCA Committee, chaired by Edward Mockus, Director of Ad Sales Credit and Collections for Scripps Networks Interactive, and the NYMCG, the New York Media Credit Group, we will uphold that tradition by providing a lineup of experts to address the most pressing matters facing our credit and collections professionals."
The seminar will also feature a closing reception that is open to reception-only registrants as well as seminar attendees and a mini-expo that allows companies and organizations that support the industry's credit and collections programs to provide updates on their products and services. Exhibit and sponsorship opportunities are still available by contacting BCCA.
For out-of- town attendees, BCCA has a small block of rooms reserved at The Club Quarters at Rockefeller Center until October 5. Agenda updates and more information concerning the event may be found online.
