9:30AM-11:00AM Origination Growth in 2025 and Beyond – Ron Vaimberg, Ron Vaimberg International

The market has upended most LO business plans and goals in 2024. As we head into the final months of the year, now is the time to create a strong plan to carry you successfully from the end of 2024 into 2025. The mistake so many people made in 2024 is they set their goals and plans based on market and interest rate predictions. To succeed in your business growth plan, you must create your plan and goals based on what you have control over and can take action on.

Ron Vaimberg will walk you through creating or adjusting your 2024 business plan for success well into 2025 and beyond. This program is not like any business planning session you have ever attended. Find out the secrets to creating a plan that works in a challenging market.

8:45AM-9:30AM Document Efficiencies – Bob Pathman, MERS – an ICE Mortgage Technology Company

All Credit Unions are seeking ways to gain efficiencies from origination to post-closing. As we get closer to a fully digital mortgage experience, the MERS® System is the first step in moving toward that direction. The MERS® System tracks the Beneficial Interest & Servicing Rights of loans electronically. In addition, the MERS® eRegistry, for electronic notes (eNotes), is the legal system of record to track the Controller (note holder) & location (custodian) of the authoritative copy (original) of the eNote.

By utilizing the MERS® System & eRegistry, Credit Unions can gain additional operational as well as cost savings for the Credit Unions and its members. Bob Pathman will walk through the many advantages and efficiencies by utilizing the MERS® System and how to become a member of MERS®.
