Cost:  $29 for members and guests!


Join us for this important Seminar where we will cover issues you need to know about.  This is the "social distanced" version of our Annual Compliance Seminar that is always well received and attended!  This will be a virtual event so you can watch from your personal device in the comfort of your home, office, or wherever you are. 

While this was not the original format intended for this year's event, we will be using the same platform as used for the Annual Lending Conference on August 13.  Based on feedback from attendees of that event, comments included:  "Fantastic", "Well Organized!",  "Great Content", "Soooo much better than expected!!", "First time on a virtual event and it was fantastic!!"

 It will be a fully interactive and engaging experience with great speakers and other activities throughout the day.  We hope you plan on attending!!   Invite your staff, customers and coworkers.  If the schedule doesn’t fit in your calendar, register anyway - all paid attendees will be able to view the entire event after the conference since it will be recorded.
