Welcome to the AMPA (Alabama Mortgage Professionals Association) website. Here you’ll be able to find information about membership, education, industry partners, sponsorship opportunities, special events, and more!
I am incredibly honored to be the 2021 President for AMPA. Last year was a tough one as we learned to make adjustments to our everyday lives and create a new normal. Our industry was extremely fortunate in the midst of that “new normal” as we watched interest rates drop while purchases and refinances soared. While we can all probably agree we are glad to have rounded the corner into a new year, we have a lot to be thankful for.
As we know, 2021 has yet to solve the world’s problems and will be presenting some changes to our own little corner of it. Despite any upcoming changes and challenges we plan to have another successful year!
-Our annual awards banquet is tentatively scheduled for April 14, 2021 and will be in accordance with COVID-19 Guidelines.
-Continuing education will be available through AMPA and online through MEC.
-Lastly, let’s not forget the transition to the new 1003 starting March 1, 2021.
Among the changes, and plans we want to continue to promote involvement in AMPA. That being said, the Alabama Mortgage Professionals Association is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to advance lending integrity and ethical standards to better serve and protect Alabama Homeowners. AMPA endeavors to do this by providing mortgage professionals with continuing education programs where members learn, share, and develop the best practices. AMPA also seeks to protect the interests of the mortgage industry by advocating sustainable lending practices in the legislative process. We intend to uphold our mission and challenge each other in these principals this year.
As our industry evolves, the only way we can continue to be heard is in our numbers. This will allow us to have a “bigger” voice on a national level. I want to encourage each of you to get involved and be a member. Welcome to AMPA and let’s make 2021 the best one yet!
