A message from NAMB Convention Committee Chair George Hanzimanolis, CRMS: NAMB Soars 2006 in Philadelphia--A trip for the entire family!George HanzimanolisNAMB Philadelphia 2006 If you're a loan originator, the National Association of Mortgage Brokers 2006 Annual Convention and Exposition, "NAMB Soars," is a must-attend event. Where else will you have the opportunity to visit with more than 325 exhibitors, participate in any of the three dozen education courses and breakout sessions, play golf to support NAMB PAC, network with your peers in world class venues and dine at some of the best restaurants in the country? Believe me; the NAMB Soars convention in Philly on Friday-Monday, June 23-26 will have it all. First, there's the city itself. Philadelphia is a beautiful city filled with charm and steeped in American history--a perfect place to take the entire family. Just a few of the landmarks we're famous for are the Philadelphia Art Museum, Independence Hall, the Franklin Institute Rotunda, City Hall and the Liberty Bell. See where the Declaration of Independence was drafted and signed. If you've got a car, you can travel a few minutes outside of the city to visit the Gettysburg Battlefield or, if you're feeling lucky, why not stop in at the casinos of Atlantic City? They're just over an hour away. The Pennsylvania Convention Center is conveniently located in the center of the city and is directly across the street from most of our convention hotels. There are a number of professional tours available through the hotels' concierges. You can feel comfortable knowing that your family can enjoy the sites as you take advantage of the great networking opportunities that only an NAMB convention can offer. When you are done, take some time to experience the Philly cheese steaks, pretzels and TastyKakes. But it isn't all fun and games--the quality of the education courses and breakout sessions are top notch. Take advantage of these valuable sessions and earn continuing education credits, which can be used to attain or retain your NAMB certification and possibly help meet your state licensing requirements. Considering all of these things, it's easy to see that the NAMB Soars convention in Philadelphia already promises to be one of the best conventions that NAMB has ever offered. We anticipate a record number of exhibitors and attendees. Philadelphia International Airport receives flights from all over the country and at some of the cheapest fares you will ever find. With the convention just a few months away, now is the time to make plans to attend. Details are available on the NAMB Web site, I'm looking forward to seeing you all in Philly!
