KMHI held its 2015 Annual Conference and General Membership Meeting June 17-18 in Lexington, KY at the Hyatt Regency. Our registrations were higher this year thanks to the great job the Conference Committee did in planning a great event. Many members have indicated that they enjoyed the conference, and that it provided meaningful programs and networking opportunities during the social and meal activities.
Our educational speakers included Tom Hodges, Vanderbilt Mortgage, Larry Disney, Executive Director, Kentucky Real Estate Appraisers Board, Tom Veit, Kentucky Real Estate Appraisers Board, Marvin Dever, Appraiser, Dennis Badger, Appraiser, and Rick Robinson, Vice President and General Counsel of Government Affairs at MHI. We also had a very exciting event, “A Night at the Races”, as our entertainment after the Awards Banquet. Great prizes were available to bid on and win with your “winnings.”
If you didn’t make it this year, make plans for next year’s Conference. It will be a good one!
