The building has three levels: a garden level, a first floor and a second floor. The first floor will include a multi-fimctioning meeting room with a long board room table immediately inside the entryway. It will serve as a place where ACA staff members can meet with other association members and working partners; where visiting ACA members can gather while in town; and where ACA can host political fundraisers and other functions. Behind the meeting room will be a bathroom and kitchen to provide support for ACA functions.
D People ACA’s New House on the Hill • Washington office gives the credit and collection Knowledge industry greater prominence on Capitol Hill. By Adam • Peterman Solutions n Washington, D.C., I it’s always easy to tell when Congress is in session. Technically, you can look at the top of the Capitol to see if the light is on, but that’s usually not necessary. When Congress is in town, the sidewalks bustle, the Metro subway system is more crowded, hotel room rates increase and reservations at restaurants are tougher to get. Of course, this increase in activity is due to the influx of people petitioning the government for “a redress of grievances,” as guarded by the U.S. Constitution. These days, the petitioners come in large numbers. With the credit and collection industry playing an increasingly important role in the U.S. economy, it is absolutely critical for the industry to be strongly and consistently represented on Capitol Hill. And to that end, last year ACA’s Executive Committee approved purchasing property on Capitol Hill for the Competitive association’s Washington, D.C., office. ACA’s new property is a row house located on a block in which all of the row houses are commercially zoned and, for the most part, used as office space.
