For the past year I have had the honor of serving as the Associate Representative on the Executive Committee to the Texas Mortgage Bankers Association’s Board of Directors. It has been a privilege to serve the industry in this capacity.  

Under the leadership of 2022-2023 TMBA Chair Steve Remington, the Board led the TMBA through very difficult times. Despite the economic headwinds, the Board pursued an agenda to push the Association forward. Such accomplishments include the implementation of the Association’s first Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative—which includes the creation of a DEI Committee to focus on growing DEI throughout the TMBA and providing resources and guidance to member companies seeking to create or grow their own program.  

The Board also hosted successful conferences in DFW, Houston and Austin and will host the 107th Annual Conference in San Antonio later this month. Additionally, with the help of TMBA General Counsel John Fleming, the Board continues to advance legislative priorities in the 2023 Texas legislature.  

Congratulations to current Chair Steve Remington on a very successful tenure. I am excited for the work to come under incoming Chair Matt Kiker’s leadership. I know TMBA will be under strong leadership for years to come.
