Many thanks to our supporters, friends and families of the Mortgage Bankers Association of Arkansas who came to the second annual Fish Fry on September 1st at the River Market Pavilion in Little Rock. All those who came enjoyed an evening of fun, networking and the satisfaction of supporting a great cause – Habitat for Humanity of Central Arkansas. Adams Catfish Express provided the delicious food for the event and there were several amazing door prizes given away to the attendees. Most importantly though, our supporters helped raise over $4,000 for this very worthy cause.
On February 1st and 2nd the Mortgage Bankers Association of Arkansas partnered with Genworth Mortgage Insurance to bring their Mortgage University course to Little Rock. This two day, in-depth course was a perfect jump start for those who had been in the industry for five years or less, and was designed to take attendees from knowing “what” you do to a deeper understanding of finding out “why” you do it. Approximately 105 people participated in Mortgage University presented by the very talented Mary Kay Scully. The reviews of the course were outstanding.
A special thanks to Barbara Whittaker and Joey Walsh for being our guest speakers at the August luncheon held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel. Approximately 61 individuals joined us for the information that was presented by these two speakers who were from the Arkansas Development Finance Authority (ADFA). They spoke to the group about some exciting new changes to the ADFA Bond program offerings that will be helpful in providing wonderful opportunities for potential homeowners.
