YOUR NEXT BREAKFAST MEMBERSHIP MEETING IS FRIDAY, June 4th
Jorge Gonzalez-Mayagoitia, Mexican Consul for Political and Economic Affairs, Will Be Our Special Guest
| From The President
The work continues. May's breakfast meeting regarding working with investors brought some light to speaking the right language to go after that business. Tracey Wilson of IPX1031 not only discussed some pretty creative strategies that you can pass on to your investors but also demonstrated some tools to give directly to your prospects. Patty Manzanares of American Liberty Mortgage came through with sponsorship of our breakfast and provided information to get borrowers through to a loan approval (see link below).
Both of our Business After Hours for the months of April and May have brought new faces to our professional circle. April's event took place at Mezcal on East Colfax and May's just took place at the Tavern at Lowry. We are looking for businesses that are interested in sponsoring these informal networking activities which do help you get your business card out there.
I did discuss the following information below regarding our committees but do think it's important to reiterate. Make sure you contact us to get more involved!
The following Directors will head the different committees:
State Conference-Ray Rosado, Vanessa Guzman, Rogelio Rodriguez

When the website for NAHREP went through it's changes, our online presence was compromised for a while there. Although there are still many improvements to be made, our site is up and running. We are working through a real estate specific provider, Point2agent, to provide a powerful tool not only for CAHREP's presence but also a way to provide listings from our membership, a member directory, a clear listing of our events, space for member articles, a marketing tool to engage consumers and much more! Please visit the site and send your comments and suggestions.

businesses to access government contracts in housing and financial
services. In his comments to the committees, Chaparro spoke to the

In Credit Score Battle, Fico Loses Trademark Decision
Isaac Corp. was denied a new trial regarding what it claims is clearly
its trademark; that is, the act of rating an individual's credit on a
scale of 300 to 850. The ruling favors VantageScore Solutions in all
claims made by FICO, affirming VantageScore's ability to use its 501-990
credit score range. VantageScore was created by the nation's three
major credit reporting companies - Equifax, Experian and TransUnion -
and uses a model that scores consumers more accurately based on a
broader range of factors. The model provides greater access to credit
for the underserved or those with thin credit files, who need access to
fair terms, conditions and pricing.
High School Dropouts and the GED
Hispanic high school
dropouts are much less likely than white or black high school dropouts
to attain a General Educational Development (GED) credential, according
to a new report by the Pew Hispanic Center, a project of the Pew
Research Center. The GED is widely regarded as the best "second chance"
pathway to college, vocational training and military service for adults
who do not graduate high school. Just one-in-ten Hispanic high school
dropouts have a GED, compared with two-in-ten black dropouts and
three-in-ten white dropouts.
The relatively low level of GED
credentialing among Hispanic high school drop-outs is especially notable
because Hispanics have a much higher high school drop-out rate than do
blacks or whites. Some 41% of Hispanic adults ages 20 and older in the
United States do not have at least a regular high school diploma,
compared with 23% of black adults and 14% of white adults. Among
Hispanic dropouts, the native born are much more likely than the foreign
born to have a GED.
The report also examines the labor force
outcomes (including employment rates and median earnings) of Hispanic
high school dropouts, GED recipients and high school graduates. The
report is posted on line at www.pewhispanic.org.
