Keynote* (CE Session)

Session Description:
Our opening session will begin with a very special guest speaker, Bethany McLean, known for her work on the Enron scandal and co-author of All the Devils are Here. Bethany will share her expertise into the financial work and provide insights on where we are now. How does the valuation process impact the world economy. How the market relies on the appraiser to provide checks and the oh so needed balance in the mortgage system.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be next up, discussing their most recent policy guidelines. This will be followed with a vibrant Q & A session. Both Fannie and Freddie are working on two initiatives. Together they are tackling the new form and separately, they are looking at the modernization of the appraisal process. And lastly, Cheryl Walker with HUD will discuss policy guidelines. Polls will be interspersed throughout to keep discussions lively and enhance interactivity.
