Collection Supervisors SIG: MDHBA believes that collection supervisors from within its membership should be able to interact, share ideas, and build a platform of support for each other. By strengthening the knowledge of our collection supervisors, MDHBA will be providing a solid benefit to our member agencies. Therefore, we created the Collection Supervisors Special Interest Group, or SIG, for those who serve in a collection supervisor capacity. There is no cost to add your name to this list. The SIG services include:

  • An online “Social Community”, similar to Facebook or LinkedIn, where collection supervisors can interact and share ideas.
  • Conference calls, from time-to-time, on specific topics relevant to their job.
  • Programming at the Annual Conference that would benefit this group, as well as your agency, helping to grow the value of the conference for all of our members.

If your agency is an MDHBA member and you would like to be a part of this new endeavor, please check with your supervisor to be sure you have permission to participate. Then, e-mail our Executive Director, Michael Bandy, to let him know you would like to have your name added to the SIG list. His e-mail is You do need to be an Agency Subscriber member to participate (see below).
