September kicks off a plethora of real estate finance conferences aimed at U.S. mortgage bankers, mortgage brokers and mortgage fraud personnel.
From Sept. 7 to Sept. 9, the Mortgage Bankers Association will hold its Regulatory Compliance Conference in Washington, D.C., to address updates available on regulatory and legislative developments affecting the mortgage banking industry. Hot topics that will be discussed include the Fair Credit Reporting Act, the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, licensing, fraud protections RESPA, TILA and privacy.
The compliance convention precedes MBAs 92nd Annual Convention & Expo 2005 at Orlando, Fla., in late October, which will feature guest speakers such as Colin Powell and former President Jimmy Carter and include sessions such as Automation in Warehouse Lending, Fraud and Identity Theft in the Mortgage Industry.
