Hear from our Recent Attendees

NARS was my first industry event to attend! I was so excited to find out that there are amazing professionals in the industry. I learned so much and knew that I would continue to go every year. More than 10 years later, I still come home excited about how I will make the company better from the things I learned at the conference. I love seeing all of my industry friends and clients — we actually get to have a lot of fun. Every year it gets better!

Combining the repossession agents and the clients in the same seminars is very beneficial. The clients can “see” what the agents go through and need in order to do their job, and the agents can “see” what the clients need to get the job done.

I have attended NARS every year since it began in 2009. Routinely, I meet amazing people and learn so much. I’ve even secured a client that I’ve now been working with for years.
