Hello, Indiana MBA members – as I’m wrapping up my final month as President, I’d like to thank all of our members for their support and the engagement of our board. What a fun ride it’s been! Over the last year, we gently rolled back into in-person events with our 63rd State Convention, held two Future Leaders programs, a Production Conference, a Compliance Seminar, created a Secondary Marketing and Compliance virtual roundtable, kicked off a mutually beneficial Annual Partnership Program, revamped our newsletter (NKA - INgage), and are putting the finishing touches on the 64th State Convention happening in a few weeks! Lots to look forward to in Fort Wayne - networking, learning from engaging speakers, hearing about new products and efficiencies put in place by our fellow mortgage bankers, the rooftop bar, and catching a TinCaps baseball game to celebrate Al’s retirement! Last month, your dream team (me, Executive Director Al Thorup, Legal Counsel and Lobbyist Tom Dinwiddie, and member Christian Weghorst with Diehl Mortgage Training and Compliance), participated in the MBA State and Local Workshop as well as the MBA National Advocacy Conference in DC. On behalf of the Indiana MBA, we met and discussed current legislative and regulatory issues with Senators Mike Braun and Todd Young and Representatives Victoria Spartz and Greg Pence. This was an awesome experience and something that should be on everyone’s conference list next year. Education, advocacy and networking at its best, with the best – thanks for a great year and I’ll see you at the convention next month!
