 White Paper
Mortgage Lending: Regulation,
Regulation, Regulation
Submitted by:  Rob Eames, Quicken Loans

2014 will be the year of regulation in the mortgage industry. While interest rates continue to remain low, new guidelines, additional compliance and regulation will be the guiding force in today's lending environment.


In response to the Financial and Housing Crisis of 2008, Congress legislated the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (Dodd-Frank). The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) was created to consolidate most consumer financial protection authority in one place. The CFPB is an independent federal agency, primarily responsible for overseeing protection for consumers in the market for financial products and services.  (Read Complete Article)

  Program Update


This year's SRRC program committee is very excited about the sessions we have planned.  We have some returning sessions such as the corporate and service provider round tables, the presentation of two college scholarships, and the always-informative corporate panel question and answer session.  Since we had so many interested corporate volunteers, we decided to accept five corporate panelists this time!  Our team learning centers will address the economy, the mortgage industry, and trends in domestic relocation policy.  We will also have a new session that will feature seven industry experts discussing the ins and outs of being relocated by your employer.  Our key note speaker is Lance Richards, of Kelly Services.  He has a very timely message regarding how to obtain and keep talented employees.  All of our programs will be conveniently located at the beautiful Gaylord Palms resort.  You won't want to miss this SRRC Event.

Final Words from Past Program Chair
Submitted by:  Mara Terrace

Dear SRRC members and past/future conference attendees!

I have had the tremendous honor of serving as your programs chairperson for the past three years and - along with my amazing co-chairs, Matt (Canfield) and Angie (Gilbreath) - we hope that you have experienced an improvement in conference content as well as the overall quality of our events.     


Thanks to your survey feedback we have been able to incorporate many of your ideas and suggestions into delivering some of the best conferences of all regional groups!  And no, I'm not just bragging - we know this is the case based on the facts. Our attendee satisfaction ratings have averaged a whopping 97% over the past two years so thank you for that as well! (Continue reading)
