An interview with NAMB Convention Committee Chair Nagy Heneinmortgagepress.comNagy Henein, 2000 NAMB convention, program What are some reasons for people to attend the NAMB 2000 convention, Saturday-Tuesday, June 24-27 in New Orleans? With the convention being held in New Orleans this year, it will be an opportunity to combine a great entertainment aspect with the strength of a terrific educational program. We have nearly 200 programs and sessions prepared to educate our membership--from regulatory updates, to brokers roundtables, to motivational speakers, to the Internet, all of which encompass the entire mortgage industry. What are some of the major issues and hot topics to be discussed at this year's convention? We will be covering topics such as legislation, education, and regulation, in addition to a host of other industry topics. We have an abundance of sessions covering each aspect of these issues. Considering that New Orleans is dubbed a "party town," what types of social and networking events are being planned for the Convention? We are basically following the mode of the "party town." We are providing attendees with several networking and entertainment sessions throughout the convention, beginning the first day of the convention, Saturday, June 24, and running through Tuesday, June 27. Are there any new offerings unique to this year's convention? This year, we have extended invitations to several prominent names. One of our invitations was extended to potential Republican Presidential Nominee, Texas Governor George W. Bush. We have also invited Federal Reserve Board Chairman Alan Greenspan, and Fannie Mae Chairman of the Board Franklin Raines. We are preparing a tremendous educational program, as well as a high level of exposure. Top reasons to attend NAMB 2000: *To find out where legislative issues are heading around the 50 states; *To find out what NAMB is doing to combat the numerous legislative and regulatory trends currently sweeping the country; *To take advantage of networking opportunities; *To find out what is new in the mortgage industry, through our Showcase that will bring together approximately 250 vendors and exhibitors; *To see how our industry rewards its participants; *To have a good time; *And to meet the elite of the mortgage industry.
