NAPBS Mid Year Meeting Wrap-Up
October 30, 2009
This week the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS) wrapped up its Annual Mid-Year Meeting and Exposition. What started several years ago as a way for the Board of Directors and various committees to get together has turned into a full blown conference.
There are some very serious issues our industry is dealing with today. For starters, Barney Frank (D-Mass) has introduced H.R. 3126 which will create the Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA). NAPBS was successful in getting Consumer Reporting Agencies (CRA’s) excluded from this agency, however, we have now been put back in. Being regulated under two agencies (The FTC and CFPA) would severely impact our industry and employers across the US.
Secondly, NAPBS is working hard to launch our Accreditation program in the next six months. Currently in beta test the program will raise the bar in our industry and show law makers we are serious about doing things properly. As a former Co-Chairman and current member of the Background Screening Credentialing Council (BSCC) I couldn’t be more excited about the launch.
I had the pleasure of sitting in on many exciting education sessions along with meeting some great people. NAPBS continues to shine as the premier background screening association! Looking forward to our annual conference in San Antonio in March 2010.
