WebEquity Solutions, the leader in on-demand lending software, will host their 14th annual Lending & Technology Conference Tuesday October 6, 2009 at the DoubleTree Hotel downtown Omaha, NE.
The event draws a national crowd of bankers, including Omaha area lenders like First National Bank, Pinnacle Bank, American National Bank and Farm Credit Services of America. Topics to be discussed include:
- Dr. Keith Leggett, Senior Economist with the American Bankers Association in Washington DC. Dr. Leggett will analyze the policy response to the dislocation in the credit markets.
- John Munn, Director of the Nebraska Department of Banking and Finance and Brad Brummund, VP of Corporate Banking, First National Bank of Omaha will update us on Nebraska exams as well as regulations coming from the FFIEC in Washington. Brad will be fresh off of an FNB bank examination and will share his experience with what bank examiners are looking for today and into the future.
- Dr. David Kohl, Agricultural Economics Professor Emeritus, Virginia Tech, Blacksburg, VA will explore the global and domestic economies with a quick overview and update of what he sees around the corner. He will also discuss the importance of "old school" ag lending principles in a rapidly changing agricultural paradigm. Dr. Kohl spoke recently in Omaha to a group of farmers saying "The environment will be crazy, but there will be more opportunity in the next decade that in the last 30 years."
"The recent credit crisis has made credit quality and portfolio risk management top priorities for lenders," said Doug McGregor, CEO of WebEquity Solutions. "This event will be a key opportunity for lenders to understand the current state of the economy and regulatory compliance mandates heading their way in the coming months from the people on the front lines."
