Kevin Cutler and I attended SVN Regional Training event in Portland Oregon September 11-12th put on By Curt Arthur and his office,  SVN Commercial Advisors. To start the day we had a boat tour on with Willamette jet boat excursions. Kevin and I highly recommend it!  We then  had a surprise visit by one of the founders of SVN,  Mark Van Ness. We then headed off to Diner at Jakes Famous Crawfish to get to know some of our colleagues better and the next day we started heavy into the meetings. In attendance was Kevin Maggiacomo, Bo Barron and Kristina Allen with the SVN corporate office.  Topics ranged from leveraging the SVN systems to capital market updates and then breakouts in the specialized markets. We enjoyed the local food and meeting other SVN colleagues.
