It hardly seems like it has been nearly two months since convention and being elected president. The association, as a whole, has been busy.
Here are our highlights thus far.
~I attended and spoke at the NASCOE convention on August 2 in Sioux Falls, SD. They had a full slate of speakers from the National Office. NASE and NADD had representatives there as well. Thanks to Dennis Ray and the NASCOE organization for the invitation. After the convention, I was invited to the SDACS meeting and enjoyed spending time with those members.
~NACS-FSA members have provided comments and input on the following topics to the National Office. Thank you to everyone who provided their thoughts to the Board.
-2-FLP and 3-FLP inconsistencies
-Lender review requirements in 2-FLP
-Good faith determinations
-FSA-2040 and FSA-2045
-Proposed revisions to the FSA-2580 checklist
~The NACS-FSA committee positions have been filled! I continue to be humbled by and thankful for our members. Everyone asked was willing to help out. I received the following comments when I asked people to serve on a committee.
-"Being on a committee is like winning the lottery to me!
-"Thanks for your confidence in me."
-"I would be glad to serve on the committee. Thanks for the opportunity."
-"It would be my honor and pleasure!"
~Very soon Kim will be getting out her first newletter! I have seen a sneak peak and am excited to see everything she has included. Please be looking for it.
~At the national convention, NASE made a decision to split their annual convention attendance by going with NACS-FSA one year and NASCOE the following year. They plan to be with NACS-FSA in 2019 and then switch for 2020. We are sure their board will keep everyone informed on how this will all work itself out for their organization.
Reach out to me at any time! I am glad to help and lend an ear!
