CSA wins prestigious MemCom Award for Stakeholder Engagement

By CreditMan Friday, May 22, 2015

The Credit Services Association (CSA) has won the Stakeholder Engagement category in the 2015 MemCom Awards – for its support in steering members through the potential minefield of proposed new EU Data Protection laws.

The awards, that recognise professional membership organisations for excellence in communications, were announced and presented at an awards ceremony in London on 21st May.

Vice President of the CSA, John Ricketts, is delighted that the Association’s work has been recognised: “It is testament to all the hard work of everyone at the CSA, and our communication partners Gravity London, that we have won this prestigious award,” he said.

“We have succeeded through hard work and dedication in our campaigning efforts towards many of the issues around the laws, including rejecting the right to be forgotten,” he added.

“What the final outcome will be is difficult to guess with certainty, but we are hopeful that what is now known as the General Data Protection Regulation, will be less of a threat to the UK credit industry than it might have been.”

MemCom is a resource for membership bodies, charities and NFPs. Short for 'Membership Communications', MemCom was founded in 2002, with the first annual membership marketing and awards conference taking place that year.
