NAMB Education
Foundation Update:
July 2018 By Rocke Andrews, CMC, CRMS
As we approach CE and license renewal season, keep NAMB in mind
as an option. Many state associations have live class options
available. If you are unable to attend a live class due to scheduling or
geographical concerns, online continuing education is available
through NAMB's Web site at NAMB.org. Click on the "Committees"
tab on the Home Page and select "Education," then choose an online
provider. NAMB offers a discount to the price if you enter through the

NAMB: The Voice of a
Unified Industry
By Michelle Velez, CMC

It is absolutely incredible that half the year has already passed us by.
We in the mortgage industry are getting used to change. Whether it is
with regulations, guidelines or legislation, each day that passes bring
something new. The one thing that has always been consistent is
what the NAMB stands for. If you look at our history, you will see that
NAMB has consistently stood for Mortgage Brokers, Mortgage
Bankers or Correspondent Lenders and small businesses.
A very close friend of mine recently asked, why did NAMB go back
to being called the "National Association of Mortgage Brokers?" The
answer is easy ... we have always been the "National Association of
Mortgage Brokers." But, there is a change that many people are
noticing. NAMB removed the tagline "Association of Mortgage
Professionals" from our name. There is not one origination channel
that is better than another channel. There is a better channel that
works for you, the Originator in your marketplace. So whether you are
a Mortgage Broker, Mortgage Banker-who most likely also brokers
loans or you are a small business, NAMB is working hard for you.
I have served on the NAMB Board now for three years. This year
also marks 10 years that I have served as a volunteer for my state's
association. I remember when I first joined the Board, I was asked
why. Why would I serve on the Board for the Mortgage Brokers
association? My response then and continues to be "Why not?"
NAMB continues to provide everything I need as a Mortgage Loan
Originator ... everything from continuing education classes to
certifications that will set me apart from the average Loan Officer to
benefits such as health insurance. Most importantly, NAMB is the
voice of our industry in Washington, D.C.
With so many changes in our industry, many states no longer have
state associations to help guide new Originators. NAMB has worked
hard over the years to assist Originators with questions they may
have regarding regulation, assisting states when there is legislation
that may harm the consumer or even offering guidance and
mentorship for those who want to open their own broker shop.
Being around for a long time gives you an edge. The fact that
legislators know who you are and what you advocate for is important.
It gives you the ability to enact change. Earlier this year, Mick
Mulvaney, the Acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau (CFPB) reached out to NAMB for input and guidance. I'm not

This is a $585 value ... all free to new NAMB members.
You have worked all year. Early December is a great time to take a
few days off from your mortgage practice for a little rest, relaxation
and some professional development. Come to Las Vegas. Airfare,
gas and hotel rooms are very affordable this time of year. Celebrate
the end of a good year and get a game plan to get 2019 moving
forward with a fast start. Knock out your required CE. It's time to put
that investment into yourself and partner with NAMB to move your
mortgage practice to the next level.
Go to NAMB.org to see all the great features and benefits of
membership and hit the "JOIN NOW" link to join NAMB today!

NAMB Portal. There are different offerings available through each
vendor, so if you do not find what you need at first, keep checking. If
you are licensed in a state that requires some state-specific hours,
you can take the entire course for that state. If you have already
taken the required eight hours national requirement, you need only
take the additional hours required for each additional state.
Online classes typically require you to pass an exam upon completion,
while live classes utilize group activities to illustrate the concepts presented.
Either mode requires identification to prove you are the person registered,
as well as participation and engagement during the lesson. Yearly
education is how NMLS makes sure we are aware of changes and
refreshes items we may not have used for a while.
So select the delivery method you prefer, live or online, and get
your license renewal requirements completed so you are not in
jeopardy of a temporary suspension (not good). If all of a sudden it is
December and you do not have your education completed, a live
eight-hour CE is being offered at NAMB National at Caesar's Palace,
Dec. 8-10. NAMB has your education requirements available when
you need them at a discounted price.
