IRVING, Texas – August 12, 2015 – The North American Repossessors Summit (NARS), an industry event hosted by American Recovery Association, Inc. (ARA) and headline sponsor Harding Brooks Insurance, is proud to announce the theme for its eighth annual event, along with new sponsorship opportunities and lender meetings.

The NARS 2016 theme, The Rules of the Game, will be centered around how to build a successful business by focusing on growth, profitability and sustainability. The two-day sports-focused summit will take place April 14-15, 2016 with a variety of speakers, new roundtable sessions, a golf tournament benefiting the industry, a chance to tour the Dallas Cowboys Stadium and a tailgate party where all attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite team jersey.

In addition to the theme announcement, Early Bird Registration is now open until January 31, 2016. Registering for NARS 2016 early will not only give you a discounted entry fee of $295, but it will also guarantee your name and contact information to be put on a list that will be sent to all lenders who will be in attendance at NARS. These lenders may personally reach out to you and invite you to set up meetings during the lender/recovery agent meeting on Thursday, April 14th. If you’re interested in this opportunity, sign up for Early Bird Registration here.

“Giving summit attendees the opportunity to meet with lenders is a huge benefit,” said Jerry Wilson, President of ARA. The planning committee is dedicated to discovering new ways to top the success of NARS 2015 – with the addition of new sponsorship opportunities and exclusive lender meetings, this is sure to keep attendees energized and motivated to learn more about improving the recovery business as well as for their own companies.”
