Refreshing Our Brand
Over that last year we've consulted with our members, seriously considered the current state and future of our industry, and taken a close look at each of our events, publications, programs, content, and evaluated our entire approach to delivering member value and benefits.
We've slowly rolled out a brand refresh and updates across nearly every offering of the ALFN and those efforts culminate here: a brand-new ALFN.org that offers a comprehensive look at our membership benefits and the content, events, publications, education and networking the ALFN provides for its members and the larger mortgage servicing industry.
We've upped our game on content with a shift to a quarterly magazine, the ALFN ANGLE. Our volunteer opportunities have expanded with the creation of new member-driven groups. Our efforts there have won the ALFN recognition from the association industry with an ASAE Power of A gold award for our young professionals network, JPEG. In that same vein, we've launched Women in Legal Leadership (WILL) and expanded our face-to-face event programming with this Spring's WILLPOWER summit. We've kept in place some of our most popular member services: industry-leading webinars, member booth space at the MBA's National Mortgage Servicing Conference, TEACH regional trainings and an expanded, robust on-site training program, among many others. You'll find information on all that here at ALFN.org. Most exciting are the changes yet to come with a refresh of our annual conference, ANSWERS. We're taking our educational offerings up by nearly 30% and adding networking and experiential sponsorship opportunities throughout the entire conference.
THIS YEAR WE'RE CELEBRATING FIFTEEN YEARS OF SERVICE TO THE MORTGAGE DEFAULT INDUSTRY. TO US, AND OUR MEMBERS, IT'S AN APPROPRIATE TIME TO ASSESS OUR NOTEWORTHY PAST ACHIEVEMENTS AND LOOK FORWARD TO AN EXCITING FUTURE.
This year we're celebrating fifteen years of service to the mortgage default industry. To us, and our members, it's an appropriate time to assess our noteworthy past achievements and look forward to an exciting future as we grow and expand to better serve our members and lead our industry as the go-to legal resource for creditors' rights.
As always, we appreciate and value your membership and contributions to the ALFN.
