Following a networking lunch, the forum continued with a session on a view of the road ahead for 2015 on more regulatory changes that will impact home buyers, home sellers, real estate brokers, and lending institutions across the country as the HUD-1 Statement as we know it will be eliminated and replaced with a new government form and timeline that will impact the home closing process.
The closing session was an interactive and dynamic discussion on the role of global mobility in developing global leaders for multinational corporations, the importance of developing a global mindset, and how to strengthen intercultural competence. The forum ended with a chartable event raising $850 toward MARC’s College Sponsorship program offered to all area high school senior’s to compete in an essay contest about their relocation experience to the Atlanta area.
Paxton’s Jill Knicely, Director of Global Business Development (Atlanta/Southeast) and Elaine Smythe, Vice President, Corporate Marketing and Sales participated in this local area chapter of The Worldwide Employee Relocation Council (ERC). All attendees earned educational credits toward their Certified Relocation Professional (CRP) designation.
