MBA Education Workshop Feb. 13: Fundamentals of Mortgage Banking for Servicing Professionals

MBA Education presents a one-day Workshop, Fundamentals of Mortgage Banking for Servicing Professionals, on Monday, Feb. 13 from 10:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m. ET.

Join MBA Education for a virtual workshop tailored specifically for servicing professionals working at residential mortgage lenders and servicers. This interactive discussion will help ensure attendees understand the current mortgage lending environment and the critical elements of the loan lifecycle. Once the foundation is set, industry experts will provide an update on where the industry stands after a tumultuous couple of years. In just a short period of time, standard business assumptions and processes have completely been disrupted and this will be your opportunity to bring clarity to everything that has transpired.

The second part of the workshop will be a conversation on the issues and potential hurdles facing mortgage companies in the coming months and how you can help support your organization. Attendees will be provided a list of what to keep in mind, but will also be asked to bring their questions and share with the others in the class the question of “what is keeping you up at night”. Whether you are a conference attendee or not, this will be a great opportunity to network with your industry peers and gain key insights that pertain specifically to your line of work.
