sure everyone realized what a big deal this was. Can you imagine the
possibilities? There are many things that are unfair to the consumer.
NAMB was able to respond with many changes that we would like to
see. Chris Bettis, NAMB's Government Affairs Committee Chair
worked hard with the GA Committee to give our responses. Chris
would welcome new people to his committee.
It seems like no matter where I turn, we are being forced to choose
sides. In politics, Republican or Democrat, Trump or anti-Trump,
liberal or conservative, this is even tearing up families. There is not
one choice that is better than the other. The only choice that is the
right choice is the one that is best for you and your family. One of my
favorite quotes is, "We are stronger together than we are alone" by
Walter Payton. Whether you are a Mortgage Broker or Mortgage
Banker, let's stand together and become a stronger association.

JULY 2018 n National Mortgage Professional Magazine n
Half of 2018 is over, and there is so much more to do. I have not
accomplished all of my 2018 goals yet, but I still have six months to
go. I am a very competitive person, and I wanted to see a lot more
certified mortgage professionals by the end of the year.
I visited the Web site to view a list of NAMB-certified mortgage
professionals, and Illinois has the most certified mortgage
professionals with 24, California is second with 23, Arizona is third
with 16, Texas is fourth with 15, and Florida is fifth with 11. Illinois is
in the lead for now, but start studying because one person can make
a difference since the race is close. Let's see who is first by the time
we get to Vegas for NAMB National in December.
I want to hold a special event in Las Vegas at NAMB National for
those who have their certifications to socialize and network.
It does matter how you participate in your association. You could
give it your all or just be along for the ride. I choose to get involved
because I feel like we are stronger together. The people who have
their certifications should be role models for new members and
encourage them to get involved. The more you give, the more you will
receive, and if you want to rise up in this organization, the time is
now. We need more members who are passionate about the industry.
Below are a few of questions that you might have about NAMB's
certification programs ...
Do I have to be a NAMB member to be certified?
Why should I get certified?
How can I prepare for the examination(s)?
When should I start thinking about certification(s)?
Why should consumers look for certified brokers?
Do certified brokers earn more?
What are the eligibility requirements to take the exam?
How do I apply for the exam?
How much do the exams cost?
If you want the answers to these questions, you need to go to
NAMB.org, scroll down to "Certifications," click and look up "Q& A"
to read the answers.
Will you help me accomplish my goals for the remainder of 2018?

NAMB is excited to announce that
NAMB National 2018 will be held at

famous as Las Vegas itself, Caesar's
Palace is the best-known casino
resort in the world-and with good
reason. What began as a grand casino honoring the indulgent
luxuries of ancient Rome has somehow evolved into something even
more spectacular. Caesar's Palace is renowned for impeccable
service and attention to detail, and conference exhibitors and
attendees can rightly expect the same. In fact, the only thing that can
ever surpass their commitment to provide an extraordinary
experience for their guests is their commitment to make planning it
