Gathering Industry Updates and Finding Solutions Through Events

MBA's most established conferences include expanded audience-specific programming on the latest technology trends and innovations relevant to that market segment. This enables MBA members to capture market opportunities through the loan cycle by staying abreast of new and changing technology solutions. Also new this year, the Artificial Intelligence (AI) Forum – Promise and Peril for Mortgage Lending, co-hosted by MBA and MISMO, will bring together experts and leaders in AI as well as mortgage professionals and government officials to discuss opportunities, risks, and legislative/regulatory interests in this fast-developing area. Your membership unlocks savings for this event and to the largest gathering of real estate finance professionals, MBA's Annual Convention & Expo, where technology solutions are front and center.
