Networking & Relationship Development

RMAI represents benefits and opportunities like no other professional group. RMAI opens doors. Members are friendly and quick to introduce each other to help everyone’s network grow. There is a strong member-to-member commitment to helping each other develop and grow professionally. This is true while attending RMAI events, serving on RMAI committees and interacting outside the organization where RMAI members look out for and help each other. We use the readily accessible Member Directory for reaching out to each other and building our networks.


Each year RMAI holds an Annual Conference and an Executive Summit which are great social networking opportunities and a lot of fun, but the educational opportunities should not be understated. For attorneys, these RMAI events will likely satisfy state bar CLE requirements. For others, these events satisfy many of the education requirements to earn and renew certification. Complimentary webinars (free to RMAI members and their employees) further supplement what we need to know to stay informed and compliant. Regional events supplement what RMAI has to offer. When we gather with other RMAI members, we will leave refreshed, informed, current, and with new and renewed contacts and new opportunities.

Certification Program

As the leader in the receivables management industry, RMAI offers the Receivables Management Certification Program. Those who become certified as professionals and businesses demonstrate their commitment to excellence and compliance. In short, certification opens doors. The program promotes compliance and attracts those in the industry seeking quality partners who want to grow. For example, clients interested in onboarding a certified law firm or collection agency know right off the bat that the firm has what it takes to meet the latest compliance requirements.


RMAI conducts robust advocacy efforts on the legislative and regulatory fronts. RMAI is very active with boots on the ground in the at the federal level and state legislatures and the halls of government where decisions are made that affect our livelihood. Not only does RMAI keep us informed and use our voice when needed, but RMAI is not afraid to enter the debate to make our voices heard and listened to. We have the peace of mind knowing that RMAI is looking out for our interests and partnering with a team of advocates, lobbyists and in-house counsel doing their best to protect what is vital to us.

Sense of Community

RMAI keeps us informed, advocates for us, and looks out for our interests. Members reach out to other members and are genuinely interested in each other’s progress and well-being. Members who participate in committees get together for Zoom meetings on a regular basis. All members can network with each other online and at various in-person events throughout the year. Through the Member Directory search, members can find other members by name, location and business type to form and build connections. We get a ton of value out of our membership by really communicating with the industry.
