Geraci Media Announces Online Conference to Bridge the Gap for Networking and Education in Private Lending Due to COVID-19

Lender Connect – Scheduled to Take Place in May of 2020

ORANGE COUNTY, CA – March 16, 2020 – Geraci Media recognizes the concerns and hesitations about networking at conferences due to the latest news and information about COVID-19. While many events have made the appropriate decision to cancel during this health pandemic, Geraci wants to ensure all private lending professionals that we are here to help.

On behalf of the private lending industry, Geraci Media will be providing an Online Conference to create education and networking opportunities for lenders, brokers, investors, and service providers in the space. Lender Connect will take place in May of 2020 and is currently seeking business professionals who would like to get involved. This one-day conference will provide valuable educational sessions, networking opportunities through our online networking app, and most importantly, the convenience to continue making deals and raising capital.

While this event is not made to replace any of our other conferences, Geraci Media wants to instill confidence that you can continue your day to day work virtually anywhere with the appropriate tools, mindset, and business partners.

Alicia Carter, Event Director at Geraci Media, stated the following: “I understand how important face-to-face interactions are when creating a new partnership, discussing potential deals and investments, and gaining insight from industry peers. However, with the current state of the nation, we understand that it is unsafe for these in-person events to take place. Therefore, we will be hosting an online conference with a networking component, where you can still network and learn with one another from the comfort of your own office or home. We want to ensure you that we are here to help and that we will continue to provide opportunities for you to grow and expand your business, as well as the lending space at large, in 2020.”

If you are interested in getting involved, please reach out to Geraci Media’s Event Director, Alicia Carter, at

Florida SB 1632 Defeated and Florida SB 1730 Under Fierce Opposition Geraci LLP and AAPL Give Lenders a Voice in Opposition

Tallahassee, Fl., April 23, 2019 – In an effort to prevent mortgage lender licensing restrictions that would negatively impact the legitimate private lending community, Geraci LLP, as General Counsel for the American Association of Private Lenders, spoke on behalf of lenders nationwide at the Florida state capitol in Tallahassee. The legislation in question, SB 1632 and SB 1730, included language that inhibits professionals in the private lending sphere. Attorney Nema Daghbandan from Geraci LLP spoke on the floor, urging the legislature to re-think the language included in the measure.

“Right now, you can make an impact. Rather than being a passive recipient of legislation that does not make sense, you can make your voice be heard and help defeat this special interest bill. We will continue fighting against licensing for business purpose lenders on behalf of our clients and AAPL but we need your help in this fight.” ~ Nema Daghbandan

On April 1, 2019, Geraci spoke on behalf of AAPL in front of the Florida’s Banking and Insurance Committee in opposition to SB 1632. Had that bill passed, it would have required that all business purpose mortgage lenders be licensed in the state of Florida. In light of this outspoken opposition, SB 1632 was tabled; however, similar language was included in in a rider to SB 1730, again requiring all business purpose mortgage lenders to be licensed in the state of Florida. Geraci LLP, again on behalf of AAPL, spoke in opposition of this bill in front of the Senate Infrastructure and Security Committee, and all but one Senator agreed that these restrictions could be detrimental to private money lenders in the state of Florida. In a separate conversation with Rep. Fischer in the House of Representatives, he said the House does not plan on including the language in a House Bill that is to be presented in conjunction with SB 1730. At the time of this release, Section 7 of this bill referring to business purpose mortgage licenses still is attached to SB 1730.

The combined efforts of AAPL, Geraci LLP, and several local Florida private lending companies have become the catalyst for change. Senator Stargel on the Senate Committee on Rules introduced an Amendment on April 22 to remove the controversial language requiring mortgage lender licenses to extend capital to business-purpose borrowers. However, she withdrew this same amendment during debate on April 23. The Senator’s sponsor, Senator Lee has continued to openly promise to work on the language to bring a compromise.

Geraci LLP would like to thank those who assisted in this crucial action, including the Tallahassee REIA who came in force to help fight this special interest bill. To watch Mr. Daghbandan’s opposition to SB 1730 on the floor, visit
