ATLANTA – CU Direct Corp. and Manheim will organize the first-ever Credit Union Remarketing Conference this fall, it was announced recently at CU Direct’s seventh annual Auto Lending Symposium in Las Vegas.

The conference will take place November 2-4, 2005, at Manheim’s DRIVE center in Atlanta. The agenda will be designed to help credit unions better understand the remarketing business, addressing topics such as portfolio valuation, online sales (including the tour of a live auction in progress), the value of reconditioning, the practical applications of technology, and tutorials on important auction services.

Manheim and its subsidiary company, Remarketing Solutions (RS), provide simple, one-stop remarketing services for credit unions. RS is a vehicle recovery company, and works with credit unions to take repossessed vehicles to auctions for sale. The strategic partnership with CU Direct offers special sales to build a lane for credit union vehicles at auctions that draw large numbers of buyers.
