Can you remember what you were doing 15 years ago? We can. We were starting up our Mortgage Technology Conference, which as it reaches its 15th anniversary has become the premier event in mortgage automation.
The 2013 MTC, to be held on the Fort Lauderdale beachfront Nov. 18-20, will be full of timely sessions to help you stay ahead of the wave (sorry for the pun) of regulations and market changes that pound at the industry every day. But we're going to do more than put out the fires (pardon the mixed metaphor).
Looking back over the past fifteen years, the mortgage technology industry can be proud of itself. Technologists have responded with lightning speed to every market change, good or bad, and have helped save the industry from imminent collapse in the disaster of 2008. Thanks to mortgage technology, lenders have gotten new tools to help them navigate the rough waters almost instantly (REO solutions, loss mit, short sales, portfolio analytics to name just a few).
So we're going to take a little time to celebrate, both our own anniversary but also the way you have responded to the crisis. Come on down to Fort Lauderdale. We will treat you like the stars you are.
