Take Action With the Mortgage Action Alliance
Speak directly with your members of Congress, state legislators and federal regulators about the impact of proposed legislation or regulations with the Mortgage Action Alliance, Inc.® (MAA). This voluntary, non-partisan and free nationwide grassroots lobbying network of real estate finance industry professionals, affiliated with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), is dedicated to strengthening the industry's voice and lobbying power in Washington, DC and state capitals across America.
Get involved with MAA to play an active role in how laws and regulations that affect the industry and consumers are created and carried out by lobbying and building relationships with policymakers. It only takes a moment to get started, and you do not have to be a member of MBA to enroll.
Immediate Past-Chair Mortgage Action Alliance Chair Amy Swaney, CMB and MBA's SVP of Legislative and Political Affairs, Bill Killmer discuss the importance of being an actively engaged member of the Mortgage Action Alliance.
