National Property Preservation Conference 2010
Safeguard Properties hosted the seventh annual National Property Preservation Conference.
With a record-breaking attendance of more than 500 of the industry's leading servicers, investors, GSEs, and field services companies, the conference was once again a huge success. Thank you to this year's sponsors and planning committee members, who helped make this event possible.
Safeguard was honored to welcome Vicki Bott and Vance Morris as our keynote speakers. Ms. Bott is HUD's deputy assistant director for single family housing. She is responsible for managing and directing all of FHA's single family mortgage programs. She is nationally regarded for her knowledge of mortgage lending. Mr. Morris is HUD's director of single family asset management. He oversees loss mitigation, default reporting, and servicing of FHA's $850+ billion insured portfolio. In addition to his 13 years with HUD, Mr. Morris also has a number of years' experience in the servicing and community development sectors.
This year's session topics included a high-level overview of the industry in the current economic climate, detailed discussions on HUD--including recent changes and plans for the future--and Freddie Mac and the VA. Additional topics of conversation included the benefits of, and need for more, communication between various facets of the industry and local communities, as well as the state of the REO sector and plans for the future.
To commemorate Safeguard's 20th anniversary and the transition in leadership that took place this year, I was pleased to present a tribute video to our chairman and founder, Robert Klein, as a thank you for his ongoing industry and company guidance. In it, a number of industry representatives took a moment to express words of congratulations, appreciation and thanks for Robert's continued hard work.
