Welcome to The FEDERATION OF EUROPEAN CREDIT MANAGEMENT ASSOCIATIONS

FECMA was established in 1986 on the initiative of the late Sir Roger Cork, one time Lord Mayor of London and President of the UK Institute of Credit Management as a not-for-profit organisation to promote best practice in credit management across Europe and beyond.

Membership of FECMA is made up of  national credit management associations, who share the vision of promoting best practice by sharing their knowledge and expertise across national borders.  

FECMA aims to:

- exchange credit management knowledge, best practice and ethical standards between associations;

- share and promote research and pool the knowledge gained with each associations' own members;

- represent the credit management profession at a European level;

- provide support and guidance for members of all associations;

- support and collaborate with existing associations as appropriate and encourage the creation of credit management associations where none exist.


The  FECMA PAN-European Credit Management Congress 

In addition to regular Management Council meetings, hosted by member associations every six months or so, FECMA has organised Europe-wide conferences (usually referred to as Congresses) in various locations. The first, in 2013, was held in Budapest, Hungary, followed in 2015 in Brussels, Belgium and in 2018 on the beautiful island of Malta (https://congress.fecma.eu) The 4th FECMA Pan-European Credit Management Congress will be held in Krakow, Poland 13th and 14th May, 2020.
