Five Star Institute to Gather Industry Leaders Throughout 2018


The Five Star Institute, one of the nations leading trade associations, recently announced its 2018 schedule of events targeting an audience of lenders, servicers, attorneys, agents and brokers, and real estate investors.

In the new year, the Five Star Institute looks forward to playing host to leading subject matter experts and executives from mortgage servicing through the presentation of compelling subject matter and content.

"The Five Star Institute continues to drive the industry forward by offering a diverse slate of events tailored to the broad interests of its professionals." said Ed Delgado, President and CEO of the Five Star Institute. "We look forward to hosting the leaders of the industry and regulatory stakeholders as we continue to push for progress in 2018.”

In the spring, the events calendar is filled with the industry coming together to better the obstacles facing housing. On April 4, the Five Star Government Forum will convene at Newseum in Washington, D.C., and the National Mortgage Servicing Association Spring Summit will hold it’s annual day-long member meeting at The Hay-Adams in Washington, D.C., as mortgage servicing and the federal government will come together to participate in an open dialogue surrounding the mortgage industry’s most pressing issues and challenges.

Through newer events such as the inaugural Five Star Fintech Summit held on March 21-22 at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Nashville, Tennesee, professionals have unparalleled opportunities to engage and collaborate with the leading experts in the technology and mortgage industries over the newest trends in financial technology.

To educate investors, the Five Star Institute will host numerous events for mortgage professionals to better their practices. On March 19-21, the 2018 Single-Family Rental Summit will also commence at the Renaissance Nashville Hotel in Tennessee to provide key insights and strategies related to acquisition, disposition, financing, and property management in this expanding market.

In light of the upcoming events, Colleen Lambros, Chief Marketing Officer of Auction.com, a long-time partner of the Five Star Institute explained how the company appreciates these educational opportunities.

“We value Five Star Institute tremendously as a source of relevant, insightful content that affects our industry, making them an excellent partner,” said Lambros. “As the largest real estate marketplace, we go beyond the bid to deliver unparalleled solutions that ease the real estate process for our buyer and seller communities, and Five Star Institute’s high-quality news and content helps keep us ahead of trends and up-to-date on key developments within our industry.”

Lambros continued, “Our partnership with Five Star Institute has consistently provided tremendous value and we look forward to continuing our work together in 2018.”

Neil Sherman, Managing Attorney, Schneiderman & Sherman, P.C. and Chair of Five Star Institute’s Legal League 100 expressed his excitement for 2018—the Legal League 100 Spring Servicer Summit will convene May 2 in Dallas.

“I am incredibly energized by what is happening at Legal League,” Sherman said. “The team is outdoing itself in preparation for our Spring Summit continuing the trend that Legal League is the must-attend Attorney Summit for our Industry.”

The American Mortgage Diversity Council (AMDC) Council Member Meeting will commence May 2 in Dallas as well. Kathy Cummings, SVP, Homeownership Solutions and Affordable Housing Programs at Bank of America, and Co-Chair of AMDC stated her expectancy for the Five Star Institute events.

“In the 2018 AMDC meeting, I’m looking forward to the efforts of the multiple work streams in driving real change within the mortgage business,” Cummings said.

On September 16-18, the Five Star Institute will host the largest event in mortgage servicing, the Five Star Conference in Dallas, Texas. Previously, this event featured vibrant keynote presentations featuring former U.S. presidents George W. Bush, Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Dr. Condoleezza Rice to name a few, while attracting award-winning entertainment such as Wynona, Trace Adkins, and Styx.
