A way some of the best recovery industry professionals can be recognized is now available and open for submissions.
Organizers of the 11th annual North American Repossessors Summit — held by the American Recovery Association (ARA) in conjunction with headline sponsor Harding Brooks Insurance — have opened its online award submissions for the 2019 NARS Industry Awards.
The online submissions will be accepted until April 1.
Honoring exemplary repossession professionals, this year’s award categories include Agent of the Year, Service Representative of the Year, Humanitarian of the Year and Agency Owner of the Year. Winners will be announced during the summit, which will take place at the Omni Mandalay Hotel in Irving, Texas on April 18 and 19.
“Every year, we welcome the opportunity to recognize the industry professionals who best demonstrate the values of NARS in their work,” ARA President Dave Kennedy said. “This year, we wanted to create more ways we could honor repossession professionals across multiple job titles who truly embody our 2019 theme, ‘Adapt, Conquer and Overcome.’”
The Agent of the Year Award distinguishes an agent who has demonstrated outstanding professionalism, understanding of lender needs and full compliance with industry standards, as well as protection of the consumer's rights and safety.
The Service Representative of the Year Award represents someone who has shown exemplary performance and has consistently excelled in their position. This person demonstrates integrity, creates a positive atmosphere in their workplace and displays a strong commitment to the mission and values of the professional collateral recovery industry.
Humanitarian of the Year submissions can be an industry professional of any position who contributes significantly to alleviating human suffering and improving the quality of life in their community. This person demonstrates leadership through outstanding volunteer accomplishments that bring honor to the collateral recovery profession.
Finally, the Agency Owner of the Year Award will go to an owner who has at least a three-year commitment of excellence within their company and the collateral recovery industry. They should also be able to document their commitment to professional education and compliance training as well as the use of innovation and creativity in enabling their company to prosper and extend its reach in the collateral recovery profession.
