State MBA Enrollment Campaigns for MAA

How to Get Members of Your State or Local MBA Involved in the Mortgage Action Alliance, Inc.® (MAA)

The Mortgage Action Alliance is free and easy. It never has, or will, cost anything to enroll or stay active. Additionally, it only takes a minute to enroll and then, when a "Call to Action" is sent, to respond and take action.

The key ingredient for MAA's success is to get as many industry professionals enrolled and engaged. If you work for a business in the business of real estate finance, you can be a member of MAA.

State MBAs play a big role in growing MAA. By appealing to their members to enroll, MAA reaches many more industry professionals than it can on its own. The easiest and most efficient way to do this is by email. If your state or local MBA wants to conduct an enrollment campaign, contact Peter Shapiro on MBA's staff at Or, you can use the sample text below to send a note right away.

Subject: Getting involved - helping yourself and helping our industry

I'm sure you are all very aware of the many legislative and regulatory events impacting the mortgage lending industry that have already occurred, and those that will likely be coming up in the future.  The amount and depth of the changes the industry will face is unprecedented. How those changes are shaped, and what new requirements will look like, will affect the way the mortgage business is done for decades to come. So it's important to us as an industry that the legislators and regulators who will make the new rules hear the industry's views loud and clear.

Each of us need to engage and weigh in on these issues with our elected officials. Mortgage Action Alliance, Inc.® (MAA), MBA's grass-roots advocacy movement is a free and easy way for us to add vital support to these efforts and help ensure that the real estate finance industry, and the consumers we serve, thrive in the future.

I hope you will see the value of participating in MAA. It's easy to enroll - just click here. Once enrolled, you will receive a weekly newsletter on the latest industry developments in Washington, DC.  Then, from time to time at key moments in the legislative process you will receive a "Call to Action", asking you to take action by emailing your elected representatives. MAA staff will prepare these emails for you (but always leaving a chance for you to edit them), so it's easy and takes very little time.

That is it, no catch. You just have to voluntarily enroll to get started, and reenroll at least once a year to stay active.
