May 29, 2008

FDIC and Neighborworks to co-host a series of one-day seminars on foreclosure prevention MortgagePress.comFDIC, NeighborWorks America, foreclosure prevention, seminars The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and NeighborWorks America have kicked off a series of one-day foreclosure prevention seminars in five high-foreclosure cities. The seminars will be geared toward private- and public-sector organizations that work with consumers who are at risk of foreclosure. The seminars will provide an overview of the foreclosure process and industry access that will be helpful in providing guidance to their clients and constituents. Participants will include support counselors, bankers, real estate professionals, and others involved in foreclosure outreach efforts to distressed homeowners. "There were just over 1.5 million foreclosures in 2007, and that number could rise further this year unless meaningful steps are taken to address the foreclosure problem," said Thomas J. Curry, member of the FDIC board of directors and chairman of NeighborWorks America. "We are committed to bringing parties together who are on the front lines of working with at risk consumers in an effort to keep as many people as possible from losing their homes." Each one-day symposium will be broken down into morning and afternoon sessions. The morning sessions will focus on mitigation counseling and resources, and understanding homeowner issues and concerns. The afternoon session will focus on opportunities and strategies for working with financial institutions and loan servicers. The first symposium will be held at the Hampton Inn in Las Vegas on May 29. In the coming months, other symposia are planned for Tampa, Detroit, Columbus, and Los Angeles.
