AICCCA Offers Its Legislative and Regulatory Tracking Tool to Subscribers

1/26/2015 11:24:38 AM -

Fairfax, VA – For several years the Association of Independent Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies has been tracking federal and state legislation that affects its members. Regular updates and a searchable database have been shared with members only, until now. A new website, WatchIt4U.org, has launched that now allows non-AICCCA members the ability to obtain this valuable information. AICCCA has announced that the site will open to new subscribers effective immediately. A 30-day free trial is now being offered.                                                                                                                                                                                                       

“We are very excited about the launch of WatchIt4u,” said Kevin Weeks, president, Association of Independent Consumer Counseling Agencies. “Our legislative tracking is something our members have always valued and now that we have added regulatory updates as well, the service is even more valuable. The latest information on federal and state legislation, as well as regular regulatory updates, are easily accessible. The information is constantly updated and provides the financial counseling industry a very unique and beneficial service.”

The WatchIt4u site provides detailed and timely state and federal legislative weekly alerts along with a searchable legislative database for members and subscribers. Relevant happenings with the CFPB, FTC, IRS and other agencies are also tracked. The comprehensive database provides valuable historical information, along with up-to-the-minute details on pending bills and potential regulations.

WatchIt4u.org tracks the following:

  • Federal Legislation affecting the financial counseling sector
  • State legislation from all 50 states, D.C. and U.S. Territories
  • State and Federal agency press releases, announcements, proposed/final rules, and requests for information
  • State and Federal hearings on issues of interest to our subscribers
  • Industry-related metrics and statistics released by State and Federal agencies and private entities
  • Articles of interest in local, state and national press

WatchIt4.org is different from free internet search methods because the vast amount of information available on the internet is sifted through by the AICCCA staff. Only relevant information is reported. A synopsis of the data is then reported to subscribers to make review easier. Information is further broken down into subtopics for quick distribution to the appropriate staff. For more information or to sign up for the service, please visit WatchIt4u.org.
