AFSA SGA hits the road August 14, 2019 Last week, AFSA State Government Affairs attended the American Association of Residential Mortgage Regulators (AARMR) 30th Annual Regulatory Conference in San Diego, California. The annual conference provides an opportunity for industry representatives to hear from regulators and discuss financial services issues at the state level. AARMR conference attendees include state and federal regulators and financial services licensees across industry types. The conference covered state hot topics – emerging trends in mortgage lending and the multistate mortgage committee, cybersecurity – and included remarks from Manny Alvarez, the commissioner of California’s Department of Business Oversight. The AARMR Industry Advisory Council, of which AFSA is a part, also met at the conference and shared industry concerns regarding myriad issues with the AARMR Board of Directors.
