NMLS 2019: Conference Overview

The 11th Annual NMLS Conference, held in Orlando, FL had a strong showing with nearly 675 attendees, nearly identical to last year which was a record year for the conference. Out of the 54 States and US Territories, only New Jersey and US Virgin Islands didn’t register, once again showing strong industry participation. This year’s conference had a strong focus placed on the complexity of ongoing compliance and the development of the NMLS 2.0 System to aid and improve the system’s service while enhancing user engagement. In 2015, the CSBS had been tasked to redesign the NMLS 1.0 into a “low-code” platform, easing future development and providing long-term savings for system upkeep and future releases. While the RFP was released in 2015, it wasn’t until Q1 of 2017 that PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) was retained to gather the requirements of each user group to create improvements to workflows, functionality and future integrations.
