Memphis TN, Dec. 07, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Data Facts, Inc., a nationwide provider of background screening and mortgage lending solutions, was represented by Julie Wink, Executive VP and Rory Tipton, newly promoted Lending Solutions Sales Manager, at the 25th Anniversary National Consumer Reporting Association (NCRA) Conference at the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.
Data Facts, a long-time member of the NCRA, maintains a strong commitment to the organization. Julie Wink, Executive Vice-President of Data Facts, and Ex-Officio of the NCRA, stated “The NCRA conference provides the information and tools we need to be sure our company and lender partners are focused on the most relevant and up to date information. A top priority at Data Facts is to understand & strictly follow all applicable federal and state laws relating to the consumer credit and credit reporting industries.
This year’s conference was special because it was our 25th year (Silver Anniversary) and we are challenged with rapid advances in technology and compliance. The combination of presenters allowed us to ensure we are ready to take on 2018 in the most efficient, complaint way possible.”
The annual meeting was combined with legislative meetings so the members could meet with congress. Going to The Hill was important this year due to all the focus on the credit reporting industry in the fallout of the massive Equifax data breach. Outstanding speakers included Fannie Mae, TransUnion, Experian, CFPB, SSA, IRS, Fico, Vantage Score, ranging on topics from How to avoid and handle breaches, Experian trended data, Key Government Data (trends and upcoming changes), and the State of the Nation’s Housing.”
Daphne Large, Data Facts’ CEO and a past NCRA President, agrees. “In this market, it is even more critical that you have your finger on the pulse, build peer relationships, and spawn new ideas. The NCRA will do that for you and so much more. Our involvement with the NCRA ensures we can keep our team and customers abreast of all changes and updates, and maximizes the efforts to meet the challenges coming in 2018.”
The conference was full of informative, educational sessions and concluded with a trip to Washington D.C. to meet and have lunch with congressional representatives.
