Are You Curious About E-Signatures?

Electronic signatures and records are quickly becoming the standard for conducting business in today’s society. Especially with the recent FHA announcement, many lenders have questions about this technology. Well, organizations across several verticals – financial services, healthcare, automotive and more – will gather for the ESRA bi-annual member meeting. Here’s what will be discussed:

Subject matter experts and ESRA board members will lead discussions on current legal and legislative considerations businesses must make, and address how they can best adopt e-signatures and records to increase productivity and enhance security of virtually any business process. A main session will focus on how e-signatures can automate principle business processes for the mortgage and auto finance industries, and the risks and rewards companies must consider.

ESRA members will also discuss the widespread impact of the Federal Housing Administration’s (FHA) recent decision to accept e-signatures on mortgage documents. Additionally, ESRA will address its recent response to the CFPB’s request for information on the mortgage closing process, as well as provide insight into its progress with the Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) along with other public policy initiatives underway.

The event will take place at the USAA Conference Center located at 9830 Colonnade Boulevard in San Antonio, TX 78230, next week on Feb. 27, 2014, 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. CST.

Members and others interested in attending can RSVP with your name and company to Joe Comizio at esra@esignrecords.org, or 202.349.7922. I urge everyone to get informed about e-signatures.
