"Between 89 and 90 percent of our lender attendees hold a title of VP or higher. FormFree has made a strategic step forward in solidifying its relationship with its customers of today as well as tomorrow. We are thrilled to welcome FormFree as our first anchor sponsor."

"FormFree spearheaded an anchor partnership with NEXT because we are aligned in our belief that we must bring mortgage women executives to the table with key decision makers to address the industry's most pressing challenges," said Brent Chandler, president and CEO of FormFree. "Our participation in past NEXT events has revealed opportunities for us to improve the way lenders do business. We are excited to exchange ideas, form new partnerships and contribute to the advancement of our industry at NEXT events in 2020."
