They say time flies by.  They are right.  My time to serve as your AEA president for 2016-2017 has just begun, and yet I know the year will go by too fast.


I started my term with a theme from a famous John F. Kennedy quote, “One person can make a difference, and everyone should try.”  I first encountered this quote during a trip to Washington D.C. with the AEA board.  It summed up my feelings about our association.  We should try to make a difference in our own world, our own profession, and that is what the American Escrow Association stands for.  Advocacy and Education for the Settlement Professional.  I hope during my term as President, I can inspire some of our members to contribute to our great organization.

We still have many challenges facing our industry.  TRID, FinCen, and vetting pressure to name a few.  With our advocacy work in Washington D.C., we are poised to take on these challenges, and effect change as needed.   You can count on your board of directors to tackle these issues head-on, and fight to be the voice of the settlement professional in our member states and in Washington D.C.

I look forward to serving you, our members, with all my energy and passion for this industry.

Phil Dryden, SASIP
President
