The Association is run by a National Council consisting of the following officers: President, Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, and Treasurer. In addition there are four Regional Chairs, a Legal and Technical Chair, a Chair of the Events Committee and The Association’s Administrator. The officers of the Association are elected from the Association membership and they bring with them a wealth of experience and knowledge from the legal profession and credit industry.
Our members consist of both organisations and individuals that use, or have an interest in the operation of, the Civil Courts in England and Wales are members of the CCUA. In fact, they represent a very wide spectrum of court users from the legal profession, credit industry and ancillary businesses. Between them, CCUA members issue more than 85% of all civil proceedings for the recovery of debts.
The CCUA acts as a focal point for communication between its members, the Ministry of Justice and Her Majesty’s Court & Tribunal Service. Regular regional meetings allow the members to raise and discuss issues which are fed back to the National Council which in turn holds regular liaison meetings with HMCTS. Prominent members of the Association also provide representation in other industry groups. The CCUA runs an annual conference which, as the highlight of the Association’s year, provides a forum for all parties to network and exchange information.
