Residential Technology Forum (RESTECH)

The Residential Technology Forum (RESTECH) helps MBA members address technology issues facing the residential mortgage industry. RESTECH provides a forum for discussion of items of common interest to industry members. RESTECH identifies technological constraints that inhibit the industry and works towards common solutions.

In conference calls, e-mails and in-person meetings, they discuss the impact of various initiatives (e.g. new regulations) on their companies as well as surfacing issues that might be adversely affecting their organization.
