Safeguard Presents to Texas Code Enforcement Officers
Safeguard’s community initiatives department joined nearly 200 code enforcement professionals last week in Tyler, TX for the 27th annual Business and Educational Conference, hosted by the Code Enforcement Association of Texas (CEAT). Safeguard presented information on a wide range of topics including initiatives to reduce neighborhood blight, code enforcement solutions and vacant property registration. Safeguard is a proud supporter of CEAT.
CEAT’s conference agenda and curriculum included strategies for addressing the many current issues facing cities within today’s constrained fiscal environment. The community initiatives department’s outreach efforts were supported and reinforced as many CEAT members reported that vacancies are an escalating problem within their communities. Many contacts were created during the 2 days of networking opportunities, and direct outreach was made to countless jurisdictions throughout Texas.
Brandon Kirkham, president of Compliance Connections, which is a platform developed by Safeguard, spoke directly with municipal representatives to share the message that its national network of clients and the mortgage servicing industry is working with cities to preserve abandoned properties and the quality of life within neighborhoods. Code enforcement officers were pleased to learn of the active roles that the industry is taking within their communities and of the availability of Compliance Connections, a no-cost solution to identifying and communicating directly with the servicers responsible for vacant properties.
The community initiatives department recognizes the importance of reaching out to our Texas partners and is grateful for the opportunity to participate at the annual conference. Congratulations are extended to CEAT for their efforts in hosting a successful venue for both their constituents and corporate supporters.
