Effective January 1, 2013 the National Credit Reporting Association (NCRA) changed its name to the National Consumer Reporting Association. This is the second growth-related name change in NCRA’s 20 year history. The organization was founded in 1992 as the National Association of Independent Credit Reporting Agencies (NAICRA).
The name change is a response to better representation of the membership’s growing business model. While a majority of NCRA’s original membership provides credit reports to the mortgage lending industry, many members provide a wider range of services. A number of NCRA members work with the multi-family housing industry by providing credit reports, eviction records, and criminal background histories for landlords and property managers making rental decisions. Some NCRA members also provide full service background screening.
NCRA’s personnel, as well as physical and web addresses will all remain the same. For more information visit www.ncrainc.org or contact the NCRA Executive Director Terry Clemans at firstname.lastname@example.org.
