Maryland Collection Agency Licensing Board - Financial Regulation
Gordon M. Cooley
The Maryland Collection Agency Licensing Board has statutory responsibility for the licensing of collection agencies operating in Maryland. The Governor, with the consent of the Senate, appoints the four-member board, consisting of two consumer representatives and two industry representatives. The Commissioner serves as Chairman. The Board addresses written complaints, conducts hearings on alleged violations, mediates disputes, and issues orders requiring licensees to correct violations. The Board informs both licensees and the public about abusive debt collection practices.
The next MD Collection Agency Licensing Board Meeting is scheduled for 10:30 am, November 17, 2016 at 500 North Calvert Street, 3rd Floor Conference Room, Baltimore, Maryland. You can view a copy of the agenda here.
