Vendor steps up to support industry trade, despite COVID-19
Washington, D.C., – September 9, 2020 – Appraisal Logistics, a leading provider of high quality appraisal management services, technology and compliance solutions for the residential/commercial mortgage industry, announced today that the company will sponsor the 2020 Virtual Annual Convention & Awards for the Virginia Mortgage Bankers Association (VMBA). The company will be a Gold Sponsor of the event, which takes place September 24, 2020.
“Despite the challenges that COVID-19 continues to provide, we must still come together as an industry to discuss important issues and solve problems,” said Frank Danna, CEO of Appraisal Logistics. “Since the virtual meeting is all we have at our disposal now, we will step up and support the trade organizations that are bringing them to us. We urge everyone working in Virginia to attend the event and look forward to seeing you online.”
Speakers at this year’s event include industry veteran Dave Stevens, RPM Mortgage executive Cindy Ertman, NAMMBA executive director Tony Thompson and Bill Killmer from the Mortgage Bankers Association.
“Due to the inability to gather large groups, and the desire of the VMBA to keep our members and supporters safe, we’ve made the decision to take the 2020 VMBA Annual Convention virtual,” the organization said on its website. “We’re packing a great lineup of speakers into the afternoon of September 24, 2020, along with the presentation of annual awards and installation of our 2021 board. Best news of all – this virtual event is free to attend. In lieu of a registration fee we encourage you to make a contribution to VAMPAC!”
Appraisal Logistics recently developed PropertyVision and PropertyVision Live to allow the consumer to take interior photographs of their home using any web-enabled device equipped with a camera under the direction of a licensed appraiser. The technology automatically collects geocoding information and other metadata to ensure that the photographs are of the subject property and then makes them available to the appraiser.
