What’s the value of a professional designation? The NACM program has several designations – CBA, CBF, and CCE – which are broadly recognized in the financial world as indications of professional excellence and contemporary knowledge of credit operation strategies and trends for the future. These designations are based on a broad study of trade credit topics, including the business operating cycle, the credit and accounts receivable processes, the analysis of financial statements, and the legal environment, including business and credit law, followed by testing to confirm professional knowledge in these areas. As NACM notes, these classes provide:

  • Expanded Knowledge: By reading, studying, and preparing for the exams, you’ll gain a thorough, up-to-date understanding of every aspect of credit management, including a look at future trends and strategies essential to your success.

When a lien is recorded against the real property upon which an improvement is being constructed, it usually results in an unhappy lender and property owner and, likely, a stern call from the property owner to the general contractor working on the subject project.

This is especially true in Oregon where construction liens can have “super priority” over a previously recorded lender’s deed of trust. The recording of a construction lien against the owner’s property likely constitutes a technical default of the terms of the owner’s loan documents with the lender.… Read the rest
