International Utilities Group

International Utilities Group

The primary purpose of the International Utility Group is to create an educational atmosphere for utility credit professionals.

Since it was founded in 1936, the primary purpose of the International Utility Group is to create an educational atmosphere for utility credit professionals where they can learn new strategies to increase cash flow and reach a higher level of effectiveness in the handling of delinquent accounts. The International Utility Group is second to none in creating an environment where utility representatives can increase their knowledge; where free and informal discussion and the exchange of credit experiences among industry peers is welcomed; where confidentiality is assured and where networking is encouraged to promote long term business and personal contacts among utility industry peers.
