Disparaged US President Herbert Hoover Was a Great Humanitarian

DENVER, Colo. -- Herbert Hoover's fall from grace during his presidency (1928-1932) has been well documented, but his initial rise to greatness -- when he became known to the world as a Great Humanitarian -- has all but been forgotten, according to "Yanks behind the Lines" (ISBN 978-1538141649; Rowman & Littlefield) author Jeffrey B. Miller, who is the first historian in more than thirty years to focus his three award-winning nonfiction books on Hoover's WWI efforts in German-occupied Belgium.

On October 22, 1914, less than three months after the start of World War I, successful mining engineer Herbert Hoover founded in London the Commission for Relief in Belgium (CRB). The CRB with its Belgian counterpart, the Comité National (CN), created the largest food relief program the world had ever since -- saving from starvation for the four years of war nearly 10 million civilians trapped behind German lines. The relief cost nearly $1 billion WWI dollars ($24 billion in 2021).

One of America's finest hours in humanitarian relief was made possible by CRB "delegates," neutral American volunteers who went into German-occupied Belgium to guarantee the Germans did not take the food and ensure fair distribution to all civilians. The youngest U.S. delegate was only 19 years old.

Ultimately, the CRB helped change the way Americans saw themselves and how the world saw America.

Margaret Hoover, host of PBS's Firing Line with Margaret Hoover and great granddaughter of Herbert Hoover, says "It will be a revelation for many Americans to discover Jeff Miller's excellent account of the 'piratical state organized for benevolence,' which helped position the United States as a moral force for good in the world at the outbreak of the twentieth century's first world war."

"Yanks behind the Lines: How the Commission for Relief in Belgium Saved Millions from Starvation during World War I" chronicles the CRB, the CRB delegates, and Belgium under the harsh German rule.

The book is a 2021 Publishers Weekly Editor's Pick, a Colorado Humanities 2021 Colorado Book Award winner, a finalist in four national contests, and Kirkus Reviews declares, "This is a powerful work of history . . . An impressive blend of painstaking historical scholarship and riveting storytelling."

About the author, the book, and the publisher:

Based in Denver, Colo., Jeffrey B. Miller is a journalist and independent historian who has spent the last 10 years researching and writing about the CRB, CN, and German-occupied Belgium. "Yanks behind the Lines" is a fascinating summary of the CRB story. Structured thematically with chapters dedicated to all the critical issues, the book contains individual personal stories that are interwoven into the big picture to create a compelling read about this little-known but hugely important humanitarian program. Rowman & Littlefield publishes high-quality college texts, entertaining and informative books for general readers, and professional and scholarly books in the humanities and social sciences.

ACES Quality Management CEO Trevor Gauthier Chosen as 2021 Vanguard by HousingWire

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, announced that its CEO Trever Gauthier has been honored by industry trade publication HousingWire in its annual Vanguard Awards program.

Gauthier was recognized for his efforts to exemplify ACES' company mission: Quality people behind quality products achieving quality results. Throughout the pandemic, he helped adjust the company's trajectory and operations to better suit the needs of both his staff and ACES users. This included implementing flexible schedules and unlimited paid time off to ensure staff could manage both the personal and professional challenges presented by the pandemic.

From a client perspective, Gauthier helped direct his team to create a new question set category within ACES Quality Management & Control® Software to house all COVID-related temporary regulatory provisions issued by state and federal agencies and the GSEs and then publish those updates through the ACES Compliance NewsHub, a free daily update of the most recent compliance news. The net effect of these shifts under Gauthier's direction and leadership was a 50% increase in reach and 55% expanded revenue since 2019.

"My motto has always been, 'Surround yourself with amazing people. Respect and empower them, and greatness will follow'," Gauthier said. "No matter the circumstances or external factors at play, my No. 1 concern has always been the success of our employees and customers. Without them, I would not be in this position and, therefore, owe them my sincere gratitude and appreciation for making this possible."

Now in its seventh year, the HousingWire Vanguard Awards seek to recognize executives that exhibit outstanding leadership while contributing to the growth of the housing economy and its various sectors, including origination, real estate and fintech.

"The Vanguards have become one of the highest achievements in housing and this year's list of award recipients represent an elite group of executives who proved to be resilient and adaptable throughout the past 18 months of extraordinary circumstances in the industry," said Clayton Collins, CEO of HW Media. "The 2021 Vanguards have proven to be true leaders, driving their organizations towards greatness, tackling challenges head on and making major waves in the housing market."

ACES Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report Shows Decline in Critical Defect Rate for Second Consecutive Quarter

DENVER, Colo. -- ACES Quality Management® (ACES), the leading provider of enterprise quality management and control software for the financial services industry, announced the release of its quarterly ACES Mortgage QC Trends Report covering the first quarter (Q1) of 2021. The latest report provides an analysis of post-closing quality control data derived from ACES Quality Management & Control® software.

Notable findings from the Q1 2021 report include:
* The downward trend in critical defects continued in Q1 2021, ending the quarter at 2.01% versus the prior quarter's rate of 2.09%.

* A rapid rise in the Income/Employment category led all defect categories, with several of the core underwriting/qualification categories increasing as well.

* Declines in the Regulatory Compliance and Loan Documentation categories show that lenders are self-correcting and stabilizing their operations.

* Refinance review share continues to be strong, and defect performance has improved.

* Conventional loans dominated while defect performance declined.

* Early Payment Defaults fall below pre-pandemic levels in a hopeful sign that the worst is behind us, though we remain cautious about loans exiting forbearance status.

"With Q1 2021 marking a second consecutive quarter of decline in the critical defect rate, the record spike observed in Q2 2020 appears to have been a one-off increase, which is encouraging," said ACES Executive Vice President Nick Volpe. "However, lenders and servicers should still proceed with caution, as declines in gain-on-sale, the conclusion of the eviction moratorium, persistent inflation and a potential default wave as forbearances come to an end all have the potential to trigger industry disruption."

Findings for the Q1 2021 ACES Mortgage QC Industry Trends Report are based on post-closing quality control data derived from the ACES Quality Management and Control benchmarking system and incorporates data from prior quarters and/or calendar years, where applicable. All reviews and defect data evaluated for the report were based on loan audits selected by lenders for full file reviews.

"The declines observed in not only the overall critical defect rate, but also in EPDs and the Regulatory Compliance and Loan Documentation defect categories speak to an industry that has made considerable strides to course-correct after the tumultuous year that was 2020," said ACES CEO Trevor Gauthier. "Unfortunately, 2021 may not prove to be any less challenging, which places even greater emphasis on lenders' defect tracking and reporting efforts to remain ahead of the curve and adjust their operations as necessary to stay on track."

Strategic Capital Attends the 2021 Colorado Trial Lawyers Association Convention, Sponsors Special Events

LITTLETON, Colo. -- From Thursday, August 5 to Saturday, August 7, the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) held its annual convention. While they offered virtual attendance, they also hosted the conference in person in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The Strategic Capital team joined them at The Steamboat Grand for the hybrid event, which was themed "Conquering New Horizons Together."

The 2021 convention included continuing legal education (CLE) credit opportunities alongside social events like a golf tournament and happy hour.

Ric Perez, Strategic Capital Senior Vice President and National Marketing Director, said, "Strategic Capital was proud to be back on the road sponsoring our good friends and business partners at the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association."

Strategic Capital supported the event and Colorado trial lawyers through two distinct sponsorships. First, they sponsored the Friday night happy hour at the convention. This social event featured a full bar, games, and a special beer tasting event - plus a root beer tasting for any underage attendees.

Beyond hosting this opportunity for attendees to network while their families relaxed, Strategic Capital also announced that they will be a Silver Sponsor at the 2nd Annual CTLA/Case Coalition Par 3 Classic, the Summer Sunset Bash. This golf tournament will be held on Friday, September 17, and will benefit Colorado Trial Lawyers Care (CTLC), which pools resources to help those in need.

CTLC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that provides rapid relief to individuals, families, and organizations experiencing hardship. That relief might come in the form of monetary aid, legal services, or basic necessities. The CTLC helps those affected by natural disasters, crime, and other challenging situations.

"We look forward to our continued support and are excited to be a Silver Sponsor at the 2nd Annual Summer Sunset Bash," Perez said of Strategic Capital's involvement in the upcoming CTLC fundraiser.

The Summer Sunset Bash begins at 3 p.m. at the Columbine Country Club Pool and Par 3 Complex in Littleton, Colorado. Attendees do not necessarily need to be golfers, as the event also gives individuals the option to choose to instead play tennis or attend the social event. The latter will feature food and drinks, music, lawn games, and a live and silent auction.

To participate in any portion of the Summer Sunset Bash, individuals must register in advance. Registration is available online at https://www.ctlanet.org/?pg=events&eid=107007&evAction=reg

Those unable to attend in person can participate in the silent auction online at https://www.32auctions.com/SSB21. Auction proceeds go to the Colorado Trial Lawyers Care fund.
