REOMAC, a trade association focused on the mortgage default industry nationwide, said Thursday that it will hold its annual spring conference on April 5-9 at the Renaissance Esmeralda Resort, in Indian Wells, Calif. Over 2,000 default industry professionals from throughout the United States are expected to attend the five-day event, REOMAC said in a press statement, which provides educational workshops covering industry concerns, day-to-day operations, and evaluation of current and prospective legislative issues facing default professionals. "This year’s spring conference will be full of outstanding educational classes," said Shelley Kaye, REOMAC president. "Our members are facing daily changes within the current real estate market, and the sessions and speakers at this year’s conference offer knowledge and strategies for success within the market." A highlight will likely be a seminar lead by well-known economist Christopher Thornberg, formerly with the UCLA Forecast economic think-tank. Thornburg will talk about how the real estate market transitioned into its current state, as well as outline his forecast for the future, Kaye said. Sessions will span such titles as REO 101 to an in-depth look at recent bankruptcy legislation and its impact on the industry. For more information, visit
