RISMEDIA, June 23, 2008-The CMPS Institute announced that Dr. Lawrence Yun, chief economist and senior vice president, National Association of Realtors, will be a special guest speaker at the CMPS Live! NY training event July 30 in New York City. USA Today recently listed Dr. Yun among the top 10 economic forecasters in the country. The title of his session is “Market Trends and Forecasting.”
“This session will be invaluable to the attendees – especially in this market,” said Gibran Nicholas, Chairman of the CMPS Institute, an organization that certifies mortgage bankers and brokers. “Who doesn’t want to know what one of the top economic forecasters in the country has to say about what is ahead?”
The CMPS® is said to be a life-changing experience as mortgage professionals gain financial knowledge that puts them in a separate category among their peers. “For our members to be able to hear from Dr. Yun is a very nice addition,” said Nicholas.
CMPS Live! New York will be held at the Helen Mills Theater July 28-30, 2008.
Dr. Yun writes regular columns on real estate market trends, creates the National Association of Realtor’s forecasts, and participates in many economic forecasting panels including Blue Chip and the Harvard University Industrial Economist Council. He regularly appears on CNBC, BBC and Bloomberg TV.
For those interested in the CMPS® certification, the three-day event and examination process includes extensive training in the five key areas essential to integrating a client’s mortgage, debt and home equity strategy into their overall financial plan:
• Financial Market and Interest Rate Analysis
• Cash Flow & Debt Analysis
