IMBA President’s Message


As we head into the twilight of 2015, I continue to be encouraged to see our organization coming together to tackle the industry challenges that face each of us on a daily basis. This was never more evident than at the recent Indiana Mortgage Bankers Association’s Nov. 10th Compliance Seminar.

This year’s Compliance Seminar featured well-renowned voices in the national mortgage landscape speaking on upcoming and impactful legislation, recent CFPB Consent Orders, and we even heard from the CFPB directly as Senior Advisor Jennifer Stockett was on hand to speak to the seminar audience.

But, it was the local audience of independent mortgage bankers, retail bankers, title companies and vendors that asked pointed questions during the day and participated in the TRID roundtable toward the end of the seminar that defined the event. Through their questions and interactions we were able to get a sense of their plight and predicament as TRID is fully realized in the first wave of closings this fall.

Let me be the first to send out a thank you to those you participated in the 2015 Compliance Seminar, as well as those who have been active participants and respondents in our recent IMBA Member Request emails. It is through venues like these where we as an association have a chance to prove our worth and solve the logistical issues that have been facing each of us in the past few months. Our goal is to continue to provide solutions to known problems facing our membership in the coming months.

Finally, best wishes on a safe and happy holiday season!
