Plaza Services, LLC, a professional accounts receivable portfolio investment firm located in Atlanta, GA, shares an update on our recent industry involvement and support. Our CMO, Adam Parks, was a panelist at the 2021 RMAI Executive Summit and we are a Gold Level Sponsorship of the upcoming 2021 RMAI Regional Event.
CMO Adam Parks, RMAI Executive Summit Panelist
Adam Parks, CMO of Plaza Services and President-Elect of RMAI, attended and was a panelist at the RMAI Executive Summit that took place August 2-4 at The Lodge at Spruce Peak in scenic Stowe, Vermont. The Executive Summit is a two-and-a-half-day event for owners and top managers in the ARM industry. It provides first-hand legal, legislative, and regulatory updates and industry insights on the latest topics and trends–all presented by industry leaders. Mr. Parks opened the conference as a panel member for a discussion on recent changes and best practices regarding data privacy. The session highlighted the evolution of data privacy, the application of the CCPA, and strategies that can help companies mitigate risks associated with the recent work from home model.
“I extend my thanks to RMAI for the opportunity to open the conference and participate in the data privacy panel. This last year brought an overwhelming amount of change to every business and we are still feeling the fundamental shifts and lasting impacts of COVID-19 and the work-from-home model. These impacts have been felt across the overall financial services industry and in the data privacy panel, we addressed lingering privacy and data security concerns, recent state and federal legislative activity, and corresponding compliance matters,” shared Mr. Parks. “I feel this is truly a pivotal time of learning from both the recent regulatory changes and the pandemic experience to strategically address and respond to evolving industry challenges including data privacy and security.”

Plaza Services, LLC is proud to be a Gold Sponsor of the 2021 RMAI Atlanta Regional Event that will take place in Atlanta, GA September 27-28, 2021. We have been a member of RMAI since 2014 and a Certified Receivables Business since 2017. Our leadership is passionate about association participation and industry support. Plaza Services’ active involvement at every level keeps our organization at the forefront of the industry and ensures compliance with the highest industry standards of best practice. Sponsoring critical industry events like the upcoming Regional Event in Atlanta and its new advocacy training is one way that we support the organizations that support us.
Supporting Industry Advocacy
New to the RMAI Regional Event this year is an advocacy training and grassroots boot camp that is intended to provide participants with all of the information they need to become more involved with the legislative process and engage with local, state, and federal policymakers across the country. As the voice of the debt buying industry, RMAI represents members before federal and state agencies and educates local, state, and federal policymakers on the important and critical role our industry plays in the economic cycle. We understand the critical role that these advocacy efforts play in influencing public policies that promote responsible consumer protection and sound business practices. This year, the Regional Event is a unique, three-component networking event for receivables management professionals:
- Golf at the beautiful Ansley Golf Club – Settindown Course located in Roswell, GA
- Networking on The Back Porch at Truist Park while watching an Atlanta Braves baseball game
- RMAI’s Advocacy Training and Grassroots Boot Camp will share all the information participants need to know about how to be involved with the legislative process
“Opportunities such as the Executive Summit and the Atlanta Regional Event are so important for not only education but also networking with other industry leaders,” continues Mr. Parks. “Plaza Services is growing and expanding our network. We are actively seeking professional and compliant partners for portfolio acquisitions. As the market continues to open back up, we have been and will continue to utilize RMAI events to meet and talk with potential sellers.”
