Benefits of Becoming a NEAMB Member
NEAMB represents the mortgage broker industry promoting legislation, negotiating with regulatory agencies, and working in partnership with other associations to achieve our public policy goals. It is the goal of NEAMB to present a Legislative bill to the State of Nebraska in ’09. Legislative victories by NAMB have earned the respect of HUD, industry representatives and consumer groups. NAMB continues to make our presence felt at the negotiating table as we press for fundamental mortgage reform in Congress
The association’s extensive grassroots member network is NAMB’s crown jewel and the envy of the mortgage finance industry. It allows us to strike quickly when major legislative or regulatory issues threaten our members’ livelihoods. With our sizeable membership, we are often called upon to provide guidance as new laws and regulations take shape. Our growing numbers and grassroots activism have attracted broad support from leaders in our nation’s Capitol and translate into more clout both within the industry and among regulators and elected officials.
