OCEA Board of Directors extends a BIG Thank You to all our 2014 Silver Sponsors. You make us look good! We could not do it without you!
Members, please take a moment to check out our 2014 Silver Sponsors on our website and let our 2014 Silver Sponsors know how much we appreciate them.
Dear Escrow Professional,
To our OCEA family of members, Thank you for your continued membership! OCEA is still the largest Regional of CEA but we have some major competition from EASGV. To remain #1, we need your help, and, as you no doubt know, BIG changes are coming to our industry in 2015.
Most notably: CFBP is about to make our lives very interesting, replacing the HUD-1 with its new Closing Disclosure.
And then there’s the newly drafted CAR contract, just to name two.
How can you afford NOT to be on the leading edge of new information as it comes down? Right?!
Being a member of your local escrow association (which includes state and national membership) gives you:
Get your information first hand – it’s much better for your complete understanding of the issues that continually affect our dynamic industry than the “gossip” trickle down method. Right?
PLUS: your membership dollars help keep our industry free of duties that “someone” is “always” trying to push off on us – we NEED YOU and your escrow friends as members to keep our advocacy in Sacramento and Washington D.C. STRONG. (Do you remember, or did you know that at one time, “they” were trying to make it escrow’s job to keep track of every payment made to every third party service provider and issue them 1099s?? IMAGINE! Keeping track and sending a 1099 to every termite company, etc., etc.???
As membership in professional organizations goes, OCEA is just not that pricey. When you consider that nothing is more costly than ignorance… you owe it to yourself become a member. The smarter we make ourselves, the better we’re all able to serve our clients – the Realtors AND the public – as we carry out our fiduciary responsibilities.
So! Have you already joined? Or if not, don’t you want to now?
Here’s an application, for you and/or a friend!
Please pass this invitation and application along to those escrow professionals you know and love.
And THANK YOU!
Make a New Year’s Resolution to obtain your Professional Designation and you can take the test right here in The OC!
