As the leading advocate for the real estate finance industry, the MBA represents and serves its members through a comprehensive array of capabilities and tools that enable members to successfully deliver fair, sustainable and responsible real estate financing within ever-changing business environments.
The Mortgage Bankers Association is governed by a 36-person Board of Directors that is responsible for the general management of the affairs of the association. The interests of commercial/multifamily and residential members are represented separately through two governing boards, the Commercial Real Estate/Multifamily Finance Board of Governors (COMBOG) and the Residential Board of Governors (RESBOG).
They exercise the duties and authorities delegated by the Board of Directors at its discretion. Both COMBOG and RESBOG have a number of committees reporting into them that focus on business and advocacy issues specific to each industry segment. In addition, state mortgage banking associations across the country are permitted by MBA's bylaws to annually become adjunct organizations of the national MBA.
These state associations are represented in MBA's governance through MBA's State Relations Committee.
MBA's new CREF Market Intelligence Symposium cuts through the talking-head clutter to provide hard facts about the state of commercial real estate markets - and what we do and don't know. The nation's leading CRE analysts present data-driven insights about where markets are, and where they are likely to go from here.
Experts will go beyond opinions to present the latest data and leading models to help attendees understand where we are in the real estate cycle, how to think about property prices in a low rate environment, what the drivers are of demand for and supply of debt, how to identify whether underwriting is tight or loose, what drives loan performance, how investors gauge success in their commercial real estate debt portfolios and more.
MBA's CREF Market Intelligence Symposium, offered in association with the NYU School of Professional Studies Schack Institute of Real Estate, is designed to be the event you will be talking about all year.
