Hello everyone. William J. Ludwig BOL Member # 11 here.

I havenít posted in 4 years since I retired from banking after 42 years.

But I did remember the date that Mary Beth Guard started Bankers Online and wanted to come back to congratulate all on what a great Web site this has become.

A little history, before BOL there was The Money Page, and ABAís Compliance Talk. (both are long gone).

According to my research Richard Insley BOL # 5 registered on 10/26/00 @ 12 noon.
(I donít remember who the first 4 were. Maybe Mary Beth or Michelle Petry can fill in the names.)

A bunch of us registered on 10/27/00 at 12 noon:

John Burnett - # 8
Andy Z - # 9
Jim Bedsole - #10
William J. Ludwig - # 11
Al Miller - # 13

And then it grew, and grew, and grew to becoming the Premier Web site for compliance issues.

I know some of you know that I had a perfect streak in attending all of ABAís Regulatory conferences until I retired. I do miss those conferences and the opportunity to meet with fellow BOL members ( Hello to Waldensouth & Kaybee).

All the drinks are on me today. So letís indulge and celebrate!

BILL!! Hello and how are you? So nice to hear from you.

I remember when we changed from the Money Page Forum - Andy had to tell me it was okay to switch - that the owners really wanted to close it down. Congrats BOL!

Happy 10th BOL, and many more!!!

BOL has been my #1 source for compliance information. With all the regulatory changes, I shudder to think what I would do without it.

Thank you, Mary Beth, Michelle, and everyone who had a hand in starting this wonderful site!

I loved the Money Page.

I was skeered of BOL for a long time.

OK
I wasn't signed up on the first day, but soon thereafter. I had known Mary Beth for 6 years before she created BOL and knew it was coming, just didn't get there on THE Day! This is been a wonderful resource and I don't know what I would do without it.

I'd been in mortgage compliance for years before I jumped ship. Seven years ago, an old friend (now my boss) asked me to come back 'just to help with a special project'. Special project turned out to be HMDA which I had no idea about. Googled and BOL popped up and the rest is history.

Ditto all the thanks to MB, Michelle, Carin, Andy, all the gurus and everyone else who's made this job do-able over the last seven years for me.

Happy 10th Anniversary!!!
