• The ARM industry's visionary senior executives now have a forum

  • What is the Innovation Council?

  • New from insideARM and the iA Institute - the Innovation Council is a membership group for the industry's sharpest, most forward-looking executives.


    Why the Council? Because advancements in technology and creative approaches to old issues will be essential to success in the face of increasing regulation. And because the smartest minds will be more powerful together than on their own in developing today’s and tomorrow’s most innovative solutions.

    What is the Innovation Council?

    • A forum for a select group of senior technology, operations, and compliance executives to shape industry understanding of the BIG technology issues certain to redefine the ARM industry -- issues such as artificial intelligence, big data in collections, e/multi-channel communication, data transfer, FinTech, P2P payments, and gamification.
    • A chance to develop substantive relationships with some of the most successful executives in the industry.

    Who is eligible to participate?

    • CRC members are automatically members of the Innovation Council.
    • A maximum of 15 technology providers will be admitted to the Council for a one-year term.
    • Primary criteria for acceptance to the Council include product innovation, thought leadership, and the level of responsibility and background of those who will participate.
    • Technology providers must re-apply each year, and will be accepted based on value brought to the table.
    • CRC members will vote on the top three "innovators" among the technology providers each year -- these members are automatically approved for membership the next year, and will receive an "Innovators" logo they can display on marketing materials.
    • Technology provider participants must be CEO/CTO/Chief Product Officer/Chief Compliance Officer (or equivalent). No sales people.
