What is Credit Professionals International (CPI)
Credit Professionals International (CPI) is a professional association established
in 1937 for individuals working in the credit industry. Our focus is on
strengthening the industry and the individual through education and interaction.
We also promote consumer education in the community in partnership with our
sponsoring companies and through the Credit Education Resources Foundation.
We support the Foundation and the National Center for Missing and
Exploited Children. Membership is open to anyone employed with or retired from
entities providing and/or utilizing financial, credit or collection services.
Credit Professional International's VISION is to be an innovative,
member-driven association making positive contributions with the credit industry.
Credit Professional International's MISSION is to support the
members of Credit Professionals International by providing opportunities for networking, career development and community involvement.
We hold our meetings at 7:00am on the 1st, 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every
month at Weck's on Juan Tabo, Albuquerque, NM.
We have speakers at the last monthly meeting.
Our Objective is:
- To maintain a closer contact among credit persons
- To maintain a friendly relationship between credit departments of various firms and businesses represented by our members to stimulate education in the practice & proceedure of credit.
- To encourage and promote the formation of similar educational organizations.
Credit abuse continues to haunt many businesses, small and large alike. From the
individuals who simply charge more than their ability to repay and eventually
declare bankruptcy to those whose outright refusal to meet their obligations
leaving the business to somehow cover the loss, these actions touch all our lives
in one way or another. This abuse of credit, especially among younger people,
may be traced directly to lack of education in its proper use. Credit Professionals
International continues to make credit education and social services its priority
and mission. Informed citizens run less risk of falling prey to abusing any credit
that is offered to them. Our members volunteer their time to hand out brochures to
schools and other interested community groups. We also have volunteers that
speak on a variety of civic occasions about the problem and its prevention.
One of a number of educational events that we sponsor is the CPI Credit
Professional Scholarship Fund. This Scholarship is awarded annually to CNM.
Our organization is seeking the support of the community and community
business to help us make this a worthwhile endeavor and assist us in reaching out
to some worthy individual seeking to make a career in the credit industry.
The Welfare Committee chooses suitable projects for the association. Currently,
the association raises funds for four our Albuquerque community organizations:
Share Your Care, Roadrunner Food Bank, the Barrett House, and Special
This year we also were able to donate school supplies to Colinas del Norte
Elementary School (Title 1) in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Title 1 schools are
designed to help children of low income families meet state standards in core
academic subjects such as reading and mathematics
