Make Your Voice Heard through MBA Mortgage Action Alliance

MBA Staff

April 15, 2019

The Mortgage Action Alliance is a voluntary, non-partisan and free nationwide grassroots lobbying network of real estate finance industry professionals, affiliated with the Mortgage Bankers Association.

MAA is dedicated to strengthening the industry's voice and lobbying power in Washington, D.C. 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.

Speak Up Now
With residential, commercial and multifamily issues on federal and state legislative agendas, your political activism is vital. Issues affecting the industry are decided by elected officials who may or may not understand our interests and concerns. Therefore, they need to hear directly from you to explain how their actions affect you, your company and consumers. Without your participation, we are all susceptible to regulations and legislation that would hinder our ability to provide more extensive housing choices, jobs and economic growth. You are a voter, an employer and a constituent. Your voice matters. But you need to use it.

How It Works
MAA is free (and open to all professionals who work in the real estate finance industry); it is nonpartisan and it is easy to participate. When an issue relating to our industry hits a critical point (for example a vote taking place) in Washington or your state, you will receive a Call to Action. To respond to this action, you simply follow a few short steps to send a pre-drafted email stating the industry's position to your elected officials. When you and thousands of MAA members communicate in a unified voice, we not only educate policymakers on the industry, but also achieve our legislative and regulatory priorities.
