MBA's
Mortgage
Action
Alliance

heard on the street

y name is Fowler Williams and I am president
and chief executive officer of Crescent
Mortgage Company. For the past two years,
it's been my honor to chair the Mortgage
Action Alliance (MAA), a voluntary, nonpartisan and free nationwide grassroots
lobbying network of real estate finance industry professionals,
affiliated with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). In
January, my friend Gene M. Lugat, executive vice president at
PrimeLending, will take over.
As this is my last column as MAA chairman, I am particularly
proud to report that the Mortgage Action Alliance has reached
15,000 members! A special thanks to the 58 companies that
participated in MAA's 2016 Action Week. Over the last month, we
welcomed more than 2,400 new MAA members, with plans to
grow even larger to align with the size of our industry nationwide.
The following companies signed up the most new MAA Members
during Action Week:
l New American Funding: 580

Advocacy efforts on behalf of the industry have been an
important part to the development of our neighborhoods. The
industry's strengthened ability to navigate and manage policy
challenges is critical to efforts in serving consumers around the
nation. For those who haven't yet, please consider joining MAA
and helping us leverage your personal relationships to advocate
on behalf of our industry. Visit our Web site to learn more.
The results are in, and as you all know, Donald Trump will be
the next President of the United States. Republicans held onto
the Senate, securing 51 seats-with the outcome of the election
in Louisiana headed to a runoff-and the Republicans also
maintained control of the House. MAA Advocacy continues to
help push forward the necessary reforms of the health of the
mortgage industry and make sure policymakers in D.C.
understand what's going on in the real estate finance in your
community. During the transition to a new presidential
administration and a new Congress, being politically active is
more important than ever.
Also this past month, MBA launched a new networking
platform for women in the real estate-finance industry: mPower-
MBA Promoting Opportunities for Women to Extend their Reach-
to provide an opportunity for women to strengthen their
networks, achieve professional growth, and exchange ideas and
information about the industry.
