“Promoting a robust, sustainable mortgage lending industry and expanding access to affordable credit options through advocacy, leadership, and education”
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!!!
NMLA is divided into two leadership groups
•The Board of Governors (BOG)
•Makes all decisions regarding advocacy – direction, priorities, battles to fight/not, etc.
•General oversight of the BOD
•Appoints the President of BOD
•The Board of Directors (BOD)
•Runs all non-advocacy activities of the organization: events, membership, education, communication, financials, etc.
•All members are chosen by President, and approved by BOG
The Board of Directors is looking to fill roles for 2021. Open Positions include:
•Directors – Seated member of the Board of Directors (BOD)
•Committee Chairs – Head specific aspects of the BOD’s mission
•Committee Members – Boots on the ground helping to execute the goals of the committee as set by the BOD
•Board of Governors – Every member company will be able to participate and have their voice heard on advocacy issues and determining priorities for NMLA.
