Annual Board of Director Elections slated for September 18

Nominations being accepted

The Annual Board of Directors election will be conducted during the Monday, September 18 MACA Annual Membership Meeting scheduled in conjunction with NEDCC EXPO in Atlantic City. The MACA Annual Meeting begins at 5:15 PM.  EXPO Registration opens at 5:00 PM.

Twelve board seats are up for election, and MACA is actively soliciting board candidates for nomination.

What does a Board member do? 

Unlike for-profit businesses and corporations, organizations like MACA are "owned" by the members.  The board of directors is the group of volunteers representing the members at large, and protecting the interests of those members.

In addition to taking responsibility for the organization's legal and ethical obligations to its members, boards shoulder the responsibility of providing guidance to the organization by managing the organization, and identifying and leading other volunteers.

Although MACA retains the services of a part-time association manager to support the Board's vision in a tactical way like managing membership and course and seminar logistics, it's often hard to distinguish between what the board does, and what the organization accomplishes.

Generally, the Board:

  • Ensures that MACA adheres to its guiding principals
  • Makes sure MACA is accountable to its members
  • Makes the big decisions for the future
  • Protects the organization's reputation
  • Supports other volunteers so they, too, can contribute to various initiatives

In a nutshell, Board members are heavy-lifters for a volunteer organization, ambassadors first for the professional, and second for the organization. Board members lend their name and reputation to the organization. Board members provide leadership, guidance, and the resource of time.

If you are interested in serving as a MACA Board Member for a one-year term ending September 2018, download the Candidate Interest Form, complete it, and return no later than Monday, September 11.

MACA Submits Comments to Maryland Commission of Financial Regulation

As a follow-up to September's forum in Baltimore for Maryland Collection Agency Licensees to review current regulations and statutes pertaining to the industry, MACA submitted formal comments to the Commissioner of Financial Regulation.

ACA’s Director of State Affairs Andy Madden, who participated in the forum worked closely with MACA in crafting the formal comments which focus on the impact regulations have on small businesses and the potential impact of the CFPB’s imminent debt collection rulemaking.  At the forum, Madden called for increased clarity, uniformity and the modernization of outdated regulations.

The September 22 forum was a continuation of an initiative launched by Gov. Larry Hogan to examine Maryland regulations, and find ways to become more efficient and responsive to the citizens and businesses of this state.
