January 24, 2022 (Sacramento, CA) – RMAI is honored to announce that the Keynote Session at the RMAI 2022 Annual Conference will feature a “fireside chat” with two of our nation’s leading Attorneys General — Lawrence Wasden from Idaho and Aaron D. Ford from Nevada. The conference will be held February 7-10, 2022, in Las Vegas. 2022 marks the 25th consecutive year holding the RMAI Annual Conference.
The informal discussion for the Keynote Session will cover a variety of issues such as attorney general accomplishments in 2021; 2022 priorities in general and, in particular, issues impacting the credit practices industries; involvement in the state legislative process; benefits of working with industry; and the nuts and bolts of responding to an attorney general formal investigation. RMAI is delighted to bring to its membership the opportunity to connect with Attorneys General Wasden and Ford during the Keynote Session.
Attorney General Aaron D. Ford, Nevada’s 34th Attorney General, took office on January 7, 2019, making him the first African American to hold statewide constitutional office in Nevada. A former State Senator, Attorney General Ford previously served as both the Majority Leader and the Minority Leader in the Nevada State Legislature and held leadership roles on several legislative committees.
Attorney General Lawrence Wasden is Idaho’s 32nd Attorney General. He was elected to his fifth term on Nov. 6, 2018, and is the longest serving attorney general in the state’s history. His professional career as a lawyer has been dedicated almost entirely to public service. He has served in the Attorney General’s Office for more than 28 years, starting in 1989 with his appointment as a deputy assigned to the Idaho State Tax Commission. He was later promoted to Deputy Chief of Staff and then Chief of Staff before winning his first election to the office in 2002.
The 2022 RMAI Annual Conference will feature 20 timely education sessions. Following the Keynote Session, one of the highlights will be “The Current State of the ARM Industry,” presented by Mike Ginsberg. During this presentation Mike will discuss the ARM industry’s current and emerging trends including debt levels and market segment updates, positive economic impact, technological advancements, market place challenges including labor costs, economic fluctuations, client behavior, increased regulation, and market sizing.
