The Conference theme is “More Success, Less Risk”, and the Conference is designed for both new and experienced operators.

                This will be the 12th Annual East Coast Conference by NABD, which is the largest used car special interest group for BHPH operators in the U.S. with over 12,000 members. The conference features dual-track workshop sessions starting at 3:00 PM on Nov. 3, covering BHPH best operating practices, and compliance. The program features many of the nation’s leading attorneys, experts, and successful operators who will share their latest tips and insights that bring success in the highly competitive subprime auto finance market of today. The Conference will open with a first-time attendee reception at 2:00 PM on Nov. 3.

                The compliance track entitled “Compliance University” is the only compliance training designed specifically for BHPH operators! Attorney speakers include Tom Hudson, Gerald Sachs, Terry O’Loughlin, Dave Bafumo, Mark Edelman, Allen Denson, Trisha Cacciola and others. “This is the greatest assembly of legal talent at one NABD event that we have ever assembled,” said Ken Shilson, president and founder.

                “The compliance workshops will also include affordable compliance solutions which will help operators avoid legal and regulatory mistakes that can cost millions of dollars,” explained Shilson. Upon completion, all attendees will receive a compliance certificate that evidences their participation.

                The “Best Operating Track” includes sessions on website design and content, technology solutions, payment devices, marketing strategies to gain market share, inventory sourcing and reconditioning, and capital. These sessions feature leading experts and operators who will share ideas that succeed in the current environment. “The workshops will not be infomercials, and will benefit both owners and all key employees,” Shilson asserted.

                On Wednesday afternoon and Thursday morning the dual tracks will combine into the general sessions covering lease here, pay here; using new technology to finance and source inventory; collections; repossessions; and payment device best practices; new benchmarks and trends update; accounting /tax tips and update; a regulatory developments forecast; underwriting tips; and a “take-aways” session. Both the workshops and the general sessions feature new content never presented before, and important information that will help attendees succeed.
