If you would like to get more involved in MBA, consider volunteering for this or one of MBA's other residential committees. Any employee of an MBA regular member company or a select or premier level associate member company may join one or more of these committees.

What do the residential committees do? Actually, they perform a number of functions. In conference calls, emails and in-person meetings, they advance MBA's national/federal advocacy agenda by providing a forum for the analysis of legislative, regulatory or industry issues. They also serve as a means to inform Association staff of any emerging real estate finance issues. They are one of the primary means through which Association policy is developed. The committees are also communications tools for professionals within the industry. Lastly, the residential committees are also a method by which future MBA leaders are identified and developed.
