Improving Outcomes From Those Tough Calls
As C. Robin Szabo, president of media collections professionals Szabo Associates Inc., points out: “Even with all the great technology available today, the telephone is by far the most effective tool in a collector’s arsenal when it’s used correctly.” So here are 10 recommendations for successful collection conversations.

The advent of email and other electronic communications means that the MFM and BCCA office phones rarely ring these days. I’m betting it’s the same where you are. The decision to turn to a keyboard to communicate has become so common that I’ve even heard of companies eliminating their voicemail systems; I hope that doesn’t become a widespread trend. [full article]




COMMITTEES – Now More Valuable for You

Get the Most from your Membership - Join a Committee


Committees and committee members are integral to MFM’s success because they ensure the association is focused on the interests of MFM & BCCA members.  Defined by subject area or media business type, committees provide members with a smaller setting in which to meet and discuss industry issues.  Current committees include:  Accounting Standards; BCCA; Cable, Interactive & Digital Media; Membership and Marketing; Newspaper; Radio; Tax Advisory; Television, Young Professionals and the Financial Manager Editorial committee.


Selected committee calls include guest speakers who share their expertise on a topic of the committee’s choosing.  Guest speakers often end up being panelists at the annual conference.  Subjects covered by experts on recent committee calls have included: viewing and distributor trends; how to manage collections, advertising, billing, etc., while avoiding billing confusion; independent contractor issues and employee reclassification; programmatic buying and the future of media; revenue recognition; and digital age strategies and solutions.


In addition, committees are one to the secrets of the success of MFM’s annual conference – Media Finance Focus.  Committee members suggest topics for the conference as well as selecting coordinators and/or moderators for the sessions.
