Committees and Working Groups

To address topical issues related to credit risk and credit portfolio management, the Association has formed a number of committees and working groups. The Committees meet periodically to discuss important themes and issues affecting the discipline of credit portfolio management and also provide guidance to IACPM’s Board and membership on initiatives related to the measurement and management of risk and evolving industry practices. 

If you have any questions or are interested in joining a committee please contact Dani Gelband
