Here's my upcoming speaking schedule...
- I'll speak at NAFCU's Risk Management Seminar on August 8 in Denver. One of our newer conferences, this one is almost sold out.
- On October 17-21, I'll speak a few times at our Management and Leadership Institute in Annapolis, MD. I love this conference - it really forces you think about who you want to be as a manager and a leader. And you can't beat Annapolis - one of my favorite cities.
- Finally, I'll be speaking at our Compliance Seminar on October 25 in New Orleans. With TRID, HMDA, MLA, and the CFPB tip-toeing into collections,this conference is an important way to make sure you are on top of all the important issues.
