State and Local Associations
State and Local Associations play an essential role in real estate finance. Strong state and local mortgage banking associations throughout the country are critical to the structure and well-being of the real estate finance industry. These groups are established and operated independently of MBA, but join MBA as adjunct organizations. MBA is committed to mutually beneficial relationships between associations and members at all levels. Forty-four state associations, including groups representing the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and many others at the local level, are aligned with MBA in this manner. MBA encourages all industry professionals and companies to become members of their local, state, and national associations and lend their voices to all public policy debates.
