Yes, it's that time of year again. Why not nominate your favourite debt
collector for a special award for 2007?


First National Awards For Debt Professionals

Aug 21 2007

The Debt Collection Agency (DCA) of the Year awards 2007 is the first set
of awards nationally to recognise the very best in debt collection and
purchase. Nominations are sought from any company based or operating in
the UK.

The awards are designed to seek out the top performers in any sector of
the debt collection and purchase industry. They present a real opportunity
for winners and nominees to highlight their achievements, as well as to
recognise and celebrate successes from the rest of the industry.

Kelly Stanley, spokesperson for ‘The DCA of the Year awards 2007,’ says:
“We know this sector of the credit market is subject to negative media
attention, however our criteria for entry will ensure that only DCA's with
a responsible approach to debt collection and adherence to best practice
will win an award.â€

Judged by a panel of eight key industry players and respected authorities,
nominees will be expected to demonstrate how they have excelled in areas
like customer/client satisfaction, how they have taken a responsible
approach to debt collection, and have contributed to the cause of better
business and credit practices externally.

Staged in association with Credit Today, ‘The DCA of the Year awards
2007,’ will be held during a gala celebration dinner at the Hilton
Metropole, Birmingham, on 28 November. A two-day event with conferences
and training sessions for professionals in the world of debt sale,
purchase, collections and recoveries will also take place during this

Kamala Panday, publisher of Credit Today, and one of the judges for the
awards says: “We have put together a panel of judges from highly respected
companies such as Capital One, British Telecom, and Npower, plus the
leading UK debt charity to ensure a balanced approach to the judging
process. We have robust criteria and will be looking for the best of the
best. I believe this is a fantastic opportunity for winners and nominees
to demonstrate and promote their achievements.â€

There are four categories for which nominations and applications are

* Commercial DCA Of The Year
* Consumer DCA Of The Year <£2m (for agencies with less than £2m turnover)
* Consumer DCA OF The Year >£2m (for agencies with more than £2m turnover)
