The Texas Mortgage Bankers Association’s (MBA) 10th Annual Reverse Mortgage Day may be just in time, considering the industry’s changing lending landscape.
The conference, which is co-hosted by the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association, kicks off on Wednesday evening, September 7, at the Hilton Post Oak in Houston, Texas.
The following morning, on Sept. 8 at 9 a.m., event chair Scott Norman, an Austin-based area manager for MetLife’s reverse mortgage business, will give the opening remarks for a day of timely reverse mortgage industry information.
Topics up for discussion include financial assessments, the secondary market, lending limits, loan servicing and new regulatory requirements, and the day will feature a round table with three different industry experts.
“I think they’re going to really touch base on the real artery of reverse mortgages and what’s important,” says Norman, who calls the one-day event a “one-stop shop.”
Industry education is key, says Norman, and the conference will offer the opportunity to engage in dialogue and hear directly from regulators and policymakers, as well as NRMLA President Peter Bell, industry analyst John Lunde and a financial planning expert who will share insight into the use of reverse mortgages as a financial planning tool.
The full schedule can be viewed on the event’s webpage, although it may undergo some tweaks before September 7.
The Texas MBA is the largest and oldest state MBA in the country, and similar to how reverse mortgage presence has expanded in Texas, Norman says the conference will rank near the top in terms of attendance for similar events. Texas MBA is anticipating attendees from more than 50 different institutions, and 15 states.
RMD will be heading town to Texas for the event.
