A Note from the Co-chairs

Greetings! Welcome to the October newsletter for the International Committee. We trust you will find it informative and useful.

As described below, we have partnered with the Secured Credit Committee for a presentation at the Winter Leadership Conference. Please consider attending the WLC. Not only is our panel certain to be entertaining, but the WLC provides a great opportunity to network and socialize with your colleagues throughout the industry.

If you are interested in being involved in the International Committee, please reach out to any member of the committee leadership team (which you can find listed on the ABI’s website). The newsletter provides a great opportunity to get your name and ideas out to a broad audience, and we are always looking for contributors. As always, volunteers (and ideas!) are welcome as we work on developing programs and activities that are interesting to our members.

Hope to see you in Arizona at the WLC!

 —Chris and Gilberto

Committee Survey

The committee leadership team is conducting a survey of committee members that will help the leadership team deliver the programs and services of most interest and benefit to committee members. You should have already received notice of the survey and an invitation to respond to it. If you already have, the leadership team thanks you. If you have not already done so, please take a few minutes to click on the link and complete the survey. The survey will remain open until October 23, 2015.

Once the survey is closed, we will tabulate the results and we will report back to you on it in the next newsletter.

Your participation is greatly appreciated.

The International Committee, as part of its continuing commitment to its members to provide interesting and useful educational programs for its members, has paired up with the Secured Credit Committee for an educational session entitled, “Collateral Protection and Competing Priorities: Secured Credit in the International Arena.” Please come and join panelists Rebecca A. Roof, E. Patrick Shea, Frederic Sosnick and Prof. Jay L. Westbrook as they take us through the world of secured credit and how to protect it across national lines.
