IAM Alleged Debtor List: July 2018
In this message, you will find the latest edition of the IAM Alleged Debtor List, which is a collection of all IAM Members who have allegedly not paid invoices to other members. Latest information concerning companies who are either bankrupt, insolvent, liquidated, dissolved, or otherwise no longer operating is also included.
IAM Members are added to the Alleged Debtor List if the debt remains unpaid after IAM Staff intervention through the Invoice Dispute Resolution Process.
Look for the RPP Logo on the IAM Mobility Exchange
Do you want your invoices to be covered under the RPP? When you accept work from another company, make sure they have an RPP logo next their name like in the image above. The RPP logo indicates that the company is an IAM Governing or Core Member; therefore, any services you render for that company will be eligible for the RPP provided the unpaid invoices meet all the other conditions of the program. For more information on this, learn more on IAM Connected
IAM Pays Members Over $200,000 USD to Settle RPP Claims
Following the final claims review for the 2017 fiscal year, IAM has paid out $200,514.01 USD to settle qualified Unpaid Invoice Compensation claims submitted through the Receivable Protection Program (RPP).
IAM Members Cancelled for Non-Payment of Dues in 2018
Below is a link to the list of IAM Members who have failed to pay their 2018 membership dues, which were first invoiced in December 2017.
IAM has made multiple efforts, by every means of communication available to us, to encourage these members to bring their dues current. We are now purging these companies from the IAM member database.
Companies whose memberships were cancelled for nonpayment of dues are no longer covered under the Receivable Protection Program beginning on April 18, 2018. IAM will not accept any Unpaid Invoice Compensation claims submitted against the cancelled companies or intervene with these companies through the Invoice Dispute Resolution Process. Members in good standing are encouraged to review all trading relationships with these companies, and be aware that IAM is neither able to compel a non-member to pay outstanding debts owed to an IAM Member nor pay out on claims lodged against that non-member.
IAM Member Companies Voluntarily Ending Membership
Below is a link to the list of IAM members who have voluntarily ended IAM membership during the 2018 fiscal year. This list is posted on the IAM Website at the link below:
Companies who voluntarily ended their IAM Membership are no longer covered under the Receivable Protection Program beginning on the date in which they ended their IAM Membership. IAM will not accept any Unpaid Invoice Compensation claims submitted against the cancelled companies or intervene with these companies through the Invoice Dispute Resolution Process. Members in good standing are encouraged to review all trading relationships with these companies, and be aware that IAM is neither able to compel a non-member to pay outstanding debts owed to an IAM Member nor pay out on claims lodged against that non-member.
IAM Prospective Member List
Each month, IAM posts a list of prospective members who have applied and received conditional approval by the Association. The last step toward full membership is a review of the prospective members by the current IAM membership and subsequent notification to IAM's membership department of any objections. Contact membership@IAMovers.org with comments.
As required by the IAM By-Laws, Article IV Section 1, every application for membership shall be noticed to the entire IAM membership "who shall have thirty (30) days from the date of such notice to submit evidence that the applicant is not creditworthy or has not conducted business previously in an ethical manner." Below is the link to the current list of prospective members:
Use the RPP Online Claim Submission Tool
IAM is currently testing a new service to submit RPP claims. If you are owed money by another IAM Member, please submit your claim through IAM's new Online Submission Tool and we will contact you after our initial review of your claim. If you have any feedback about the new tool, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can improve it for all IAM users.
Read and Understand the Receivable Protection Program (RPP) Rules and Regulations
IAM encourages all members to review the updated RPP Operating Rules and Regulations to ensure that they understand under what conditions their RPP Unpaid Invoice Compensation claims will be approved. Learn more on IAM Connected.
Companies Misusing the IAM/HHGFAA Logo or Name
IAM tracks companies who are advertising the IAM/HHGFAA name or logo on their website and/or correspondence without authorization. We have submitted a cease and desist notice to these companies and, despite several requests, they are still illegally advertising affiliation with the Association.
We discourage IAM members from conducting business with the companies who participate in this unlawful and unethical practice. If a company complies with our request, we will remove them from this list. If you believe a company is illegally advertising the IAM/HHGFAA name or trademark on their website and/or correspondence, contact notify IAM us at email@example.com.
