Howard has played an instrumental role in drafting both State and Federal Legislation and is a former consultant to the Board of Directors for the Association of Credit Counseling Professionals as well as the past president of the Association of Independent Consumer Credit Counseling Agencies.

Michael Koretzky

Editor


Formerly the editor of Money Talks News and a publisher with the Tribune Media Company, Koretzky has been a professional journalist since 1989. Michael Koretzky has covered a Democratic and Republican national convention, a couple of Space Shuttle launches, and music festivals in Istanbul and the Cayman Islands. What did they have in common? At some level, they were all about money. Now he’s a PFE-certified debt management professional who’s cut out the middleman and writes about money for a living. Sometimes this means explaining the difference between DTI and DMP. Other times, it means writing about student loan memes.
