Mission Statement

“Promoting a robust, sustainable mortgage lending industry and expanding access to affordable credit options through advocacy, leadership, and education”

NMLA Formation

After the housing and financial crisis of 2008, Nevada markets were left devastated, including the two mortgage advocacy groups; NAMP and NVMBA - neither of which survived.  In 2010, NAMP was reconstituted and began to reestablish its role, primarily as an educational organization.  In 2014, NVMBA reestablished itself as well, primarily as an advocacy organization.  The leadership of both organizations agreed that a single organization was a better fit for the needs of the industry in Nevada in the post-great recession world.  On January 1, 2015, NAMP and NVMBA merged to form NMLA!!!


Our mission at N.M.L.A is to empower our community through advocacy, education, and support. Our leadership team is comprised of passionate individuals committed to creating lasting change. We leverage our collective experience to identify the most pressing issues facing our community and develop innovative solutions. We value partnership, and we work hand-in-hand with local organizations and community leaders to maximize our impact. Contact us today to learn how you can get involved.


Chair, Board of Governors

Jon Gedde

I am proud to serve as the Chairman of the Nevada Mortgage Lenders Association (NMLA), the premier mortgage organization in the state. Since 2014, I have put my focus on shaping the future of the mortgage industry and advocating for consumer interests, both of which I believe are crucial in ensuring the long-term success of the industry. At NMLA, our primary goal is to bring together professionals who are dedicated to serving the mortgage needs of our residents. With cutting-edge technology and a passion for excellence, we’re confident that we can deliver top-notch service to each and every member of the community.
