Join the joint Risk Management Member Development Group call on Wednesday, July 19, 2017 as we discuss: 

Foreclosure and Underground Storage Tanks: A View from Texas (and Elsewhere)

This is going to be an interesting presentation, in both style and content – We will start out with Attorney Scott Deatherage delivering his presentation, followed by a panel discussion on lending and foreclosure challenges with Scott and several lenders including Kim Luu (Bank of Hope), Michael Cole (SunTrust Bank), and Bill Sloan (Commerce Bank).  Send any questions you would like the group to address to Dennis Firestone.


Underground storage tanks can present particular challenges for lenders considering foreclosure. While some statutes may provide certain lender protections, underground storage tank statutes may not. Each state’s laws need to be consulted prior to foreclosure.  Consideration also should be given to potential tort claims for which there is likely no lender protection.  Finally, evaluation of environmental costs versus potential collateral value and net recovery are critical.

The call will be hosted by EBA-RMC Co-Chairs: Michael Cole of SunTrust Bank, and Dennis Firestone of ATC Group Services.

Get involved with the EBA E&E Media Club!


EBA E&E Media Club - What is it?  Our new Education and Entertaining (E&E) Media Club is an EBA member-driven media forum that focuses on education and entertainment.  

There are so many great books and other media sources that explain why we have jobs. We invite you to make suggestions on resources for how to be better professionals / humans, or give life lessons, or just plain make you laugh.  We plan on doing bi-monthly reviews of books, movies and webcasts, which may be related to the environmental business we work in, the history of our practices, business growth, or just because you should.  Participation is voluntary.  We will try to ensure books are available in multiple formats (such as audio books), but you will be responsible to obtain the media.

As we launch this, we plan for bi-monthly updates, and will communicate in advance which book or movie / webcast we are reviewing.  We will be using the EBA Risk Management Member Development Group Blog to disseminate information.  Any book worms or movie critics who are interesting in assisting with reviews or ideas on books/movies/etc. please contact Jeffrey Sotek at 518-344-9853 or jeff.sotek@amecfw.com.  There is no obligation for members to read, listen or watch anything, but it may be fun, and we hope you'll join us.
