)-- CESI Debt Solutions CEO, Dr. Diane Chen, was one of twenty-five panelists at the first ever “Rally in Raleigh” event this past Saturday. The event was hosted by “The Get Out of Debt Guy,” Steve Rhode, and brought together leaders from the debt relief industry, including consumers and consumer advocates, to discuss how to make the industry a safer and better place for consumers.
CESI Debt Solutions was the only non-profit credit counseling organization represented.
“I was really proud to represent the nonprofit credit counselors at this groundbreaking event. Steve Rhodes did a spectacular job in bringing this event to fruition,” says Dr. Chen, “and this conversation was a great step towards collaboration and understanding all points of view.”
She continues, “Debt is a symptom of a far bigger problem. As a nonprofit credit counseling agency, our focus is on treating the root cause of credit card debt, so our mission continues to be focused on education and financial literacy. Every day, we enjoy the challenge of finding new and innovative ways to educate consumers on how to be better money managers for life. We encourage consumers in need of debt relief to do research, ask lots of questions and understand all their options for getting help with their credit card debt.”
