It’s that time of year again where we are all off to different seminars and conventions. I’ll be traveling quite a bit over the next few months just when business is going great guns. I’ll be attending the IFA’s Senior Executives Meeting next week at Paradise Island, Bahamas. As always I’m sure it will be a spectacular event in a wonderful place. It’s cold and snowy here in New York and I welcome the opportunity to be in a warm and sunny location. Aside from the great location this IFA event is one of my favorites as it gives me a chance to catch up with some of my peers in the factoring industry. I always return home from this event with new ideas to promote RMP Capital and it’s factoring services. In March I’ll be going to the CFA Senior Leadership Summit and will be spending some time with many senior executives in the asset based lending arena. At this event I get to learn more about what is going on in the financial world outside of factoring industry. I’m also on the CFA’s executive board and we will discussing a number of issues effecting the industry and the association. April is the IFA Annual Convention in Washington, D.C. Hopefully the weather will be better by then. RMP Capital will have a booth to promote our Contractor Factoring Program and our Rediscount Lines of Credit program for small factors. This is always a great show for us, we have an opportunity to talk “face to face” with people that work directly in the factoring industry. So looking ahead, during this first quarter of 2011 there will be quite a bit of traveling to industry specific events in addition to my normal travel schedule. This gives me an opportunity to make contact with old friends and to make new friends, all of which may learn more about RMP Capital and give us a chance to work together on potential transactions and increase our factoring portfolios. I’ll let you know how things go at each of these meetings and conventions.
In the meantime, I welcome your thoughts, comments and ideas.
