|October 14, 2011|
With the abundance of new state and federal legislation, regulations, lobbying efforts and news reports, many are wondering where exactly everyone will end up when hundreds of new mandates are imposed on multiple industries tied to the housing market. But instead of sitting back and waiting for the government to tell you what you have to do and what your processes and procedures should look like, why not begin influencing the process and tell the government how things should be done?
October Research and the staff at Dodd Frank Update are hosting an important webinar to give industry professionals the information they need to influence lawmakers and regulatory overseers in the legislative and rulemaking process. Speak Up: How to Effectively Influence Government will air at 2 p.m. ET, Oct. 26.

Justin Ailes, vice president of government and regulatory affairs at the American Land Title Association, and Loretta Salzano, founding partner of Franzén & Salzano PC, will cover the following topics:
