Whose Customers Are They Anyway?
Challenges Arising when Loan Originators Join or Leave a Lender in a Post-“Guaranteed-Rate-Case” World

This is a bootcamp. Arrive ready to identify and address issues arising when production personnel join or leave your company with customer information, loans, or other proprietary data.

Troy Garris will lead attendees through the various risks and protections applicable under Federal and state law in these scenarios, including how to protect the company when soliciting, onboarding and offboarding loan originators. Applicable laws discussed will include the Texas Uniform Trade Secrets Act, and the Federal Defend Trade Secrets Act of 2016.  Go home with practical ideas ready to put them into effect.

Who should attend?  Principals, senior management, in-house counsel, talent acquisition, and compliance officers.

67th Annual Educational Seminar & Marketplace (seperate event)

On November 6th & 7th, TMBA's Annual Educational Seminar & Marketplace will bring together hundreds of real estate finance professionals to listen to dynamic speakers from the industry. Register today to participate in this year's Educational Seminar which will be unlike any prior year, with more exciting opportunities than ever to display your Company to Texas Mortgage Bankers.

The MED Talk theme is breaking the mold for the typical seminar agenda, eliminating the long keynote speeches from singular speakers in favor of a more contemporary format using a TED Talk inspired structure. We are creating additional sessions aimed at increasing attendance from a more diverse group of attendees, including technology, operational, and compliance decision-makers.

You MUST REGISTER SEPARATELY for the annual Seminar.
