"I am unaware of any other resource that would provide the foundation to cultivate the relationships with my peers that these groups afford."
"Our membership in two different parts of National Group Management, the National Poultry Processors Credit Group and the National Manufacturers Deductions and Resolutions Group are some of the most valuable tools available to me as a credit manager. The NPPCG monthly trade publications provide useful metrics for specific accounts as well as the opportunity for credit investigation. The results of surveys completed by NMDRG group members provide applicable metrics for measuring deduction management in our company, as well as additional information regarding methods and tools that various members use.
The ease of submitting daily flash information allows members to ask questions of one another as well as share relevant customer information with the group.
Attending the meetings allows vital networking, in depth roundtable discussions, and question and answer sessions that focus on topics that are relevant in day to day credit and deduction management. I am unaware of any other resource that would provide the foundation to cultivate the relationships with my peers that these groups afford. Guest speakers provide relevant information that is beneficial to the members."

"The NFHBC website is in the toolkit of the entire credit staff."
"The NFHBC website is in the toolkit of the entire credit staff. Collectors use it to stay of abreast of current payment trends/issues as well as share our experiences. Credit Managers use it to obtain the valuable Trade Relations Committee reports, review the timely Claim Committee updates and “Items of Interest” articles. The information gained from the website and meetings easily offsets the membership cost."
