The 2012 NAMFS Conference will take place September 13 through 15, in New Orleans. This educationally based event open to both members and sponsored non-members will offer preparatory classes based on the field services training courses offered by the Association. In addition, attendees will also be given the opportunity to participate in general sessions covering developments within the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac along with breakout sessions based on our growing library of business resource materials. This year's event also offers the first organized "give back" opportunity through a partnership with Rebuilding Together and an expanded Opportunity Expo with several more exhibitors than past years.

NAMFS is pleased to announce the dates of its 24th Annual Conference to be held in New Orleans, Louisiana from September 13 through September 15. This three-day event has evolved over the years to include volunteering, networking and educational sessions tailored to the diverse needs of the Association's membership.

The content at the 2012 NAMFS Conference will be largely focused on the educational resources available through the Association. Breakout sessions will be based on our current curriculum as well as the materials available via our soon to be debuted Business Resource Center. Attendees of the conference will have the chance to participate in sessions covering:

  • Inspections
  • Pre-Sale Preservation
  • Post-Sale Preservation
  • Recurring Services including Winterizations, Grass Cuts, etc.
  • Special Services
  • NAMFS Member Benefits & Business Resources

Sessions are designed to provide an introductory course based on our training modules as well as assisting attendees handle common questions, concerns and challenges associated with the day-to-day operation of a business in the mortgage field service industry. Participants will be able to utilize the information gleaned during these sessions to take advantage of the NAMFS Certification program once returning to their offices. In addition to breakout sessions, general sessions will be presented offering insights into the most recent developments within HUD, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that impact the field service industry.

One of the newest additions to the annual conference is our "Give Back" event. NAMFS will be kicking off the 2012 conference by partnering with the New Orleans chapter of Rebuilding Together to sponsor a volunteer opportunity for attendees of this year's conference on September 13. This year's Opportunity Expo will also be the largest in the history of the Association, encompassing over 16,000 square feet and taking place over the first two days of the conference.

The 2012 NAMFS Conference will be open to members but, unlike years past, subcontractors will also be given the opportunity to attend when sponsored by a member. The Association highly recommends sending both employees and subcontractors to this education driven event with the intent of preparing them to become certified to provide field services while gaining a better understanding of the industry.

Early registration for this event will open in May. Additional information regarding the 2012 NAMFS Conference is available on NAMFS.org including links detailing sponsorship and volunteering opportunities for this industry-wide event.
