USFNgage sessions will utilize a Zoom meeting format where speakers will engage directly with participants face-to-face. Participants should come prepared to enable their video, unmute themselves, and engage with both speakers and fellow participants. Participation in USFNgage sessions will include:
In addition, USFNgage sessions will use breakout rooms to facilitate smaller group discussions and collaboration. Participants will spend time working in smaller groups on an assigned topic and will develop a brief group report that will be presented to all participants during the session.
Sessions are open to all USFN members and client organizations including mortgage servicers, government-sponsored enterprises, banks, lenders, and other financial institutions involved in the servicing of defaulted loans.

USFN members of all experience levels, as well as anyone involved or interested in DEI personally or within their organization, will also find these sessions beneficial.
