You should have received an email last week addressing the new website. We have had some folks reach out to ask about the App to download. If you go to the Apple Store (or Google), please search for Wild Apricot for Business. That is the software we are using and the app is awesome. I used it to register for the remaining events of the year, encourage you to do the same.
More importantly, we have a CALL TO ACTION request from the TMBA. There is a vote set to take place on Wednesday, August 29th to consider abolishing the Texas Savings and Loan Commission. The TMBA has asked that we get volunteers to call on the members of the Sunset Committee today and tomorrow to express our opposition to abolishing the commission. There is no gain to the taxpayers, no benefit to consumers and is absolutely not good for the mortgage banking community in Texas.
While most members of the committee do not represent Houston districts, we do have Representative Senfronia Thompson here locally. If she is your representative, it is especially important her offices hears from you. Otherwise, if you can take the time over the next two days, please reach out to the Committee members today and tomorrow and express your concerns. If you have a specific relationship with any of the committee members, please reach out to them as well.
Please click HERE to review the TMBA Talking points which includes contact information and a full script for you to use for your calls. Thanks for your assistance in making this outreach!
