John M. Schobel, RegEd CEO & Founder, stated, "On behalf of RegEd, I want to offer sincere appreciation to the committee at SILA for selecting us as the Organization of the Year. We have invested greatly into our Enterprise Xchange platform over the last decade, and especially over the past 24 months, and it’s extremely gratifying to have our innovations recognized. For example, our Alerts 2.0 module is keeping the credentials of hundreds of thousands of producers updated automatically, reducing effort and compliance risk exposure for our clients. Our new streamlined user interface will make processing faster and easier, saving time and reducing licensing costs. And our Onboarding modules for both insurance companies and broker-dealers are solving an age-old problem and making a better experience for firms and agents. RegEd’s mission is to bring efficiency and better compliance to our clients, and we couldn’t be happier to be recognized for these efforts.”

A number of RegEd compliance thought leaders and subject matter experts were also nominated for individual SILA awards during the conference.
