The Mortgage Action Alliance (MAA) is kicking off October with our 2017 Action Week. Our goal this year is to get 1,000 downloads of the new MAA App and surpass 20,000 MAA members. Last year we had about 60 companies participate in Action Week and signed up just over 2,400 new MAA members. We need to beat those numbers this year. We’ll be recognizing all participants at MBA’s Annual Convention and are spreading the word on social media.
Why should you get involved? Because MAA is the non-partisan nationwide grassroots lobbying network of real estate finance industry professionals that allows our industry to speak to our elected officials with one voice on issues that impact your business.
Your participation makes a difference, and the MAA app makes taking action very easy. In August alone, over 2,500 industry professionals contacted their elected officials, sending over 6,500 letters to Congress about key issues including GSE reform, transitional licensing authority, and the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).
Participation in Action Week is free and you can sign up at mba.org/ActionWeek. Once your company has signed up, MAA staff will send you a full how-to kit that makes it easy to enroll your colleagues. Individuals who sign up will receive all the materials they need to conduct an Action Week MAA campaign at their company.
The more MAA members we have, the stronger our voice will be as we play an active role in how laws and regulations that affect the industry and consumers are created and carried out. Help us reach our goal by enrolling your company to participate and running a MAA membership campaign within your office! For more information, visit mba.org/ActionWeek.
