Advocate with MBA’s State Relations Initiative

Understanding the importance of advocacy, MBA actively partners with associations across the country to address issues relevant to the real estate finance industry. This approach not only offers state groups greater participation in national issue campaigns but also gives them the opportunity to take credit for their advocacy contributions in state member recruitment.

Many opt to stay and attend MBA's National Advocacy Conference (NAC), the largest and only advocacy event focused solely on real estate finance issues. Special discount pricing is available to those who register for both conferences.
