A message from NAMB 2005-2006 President Jim Nabors, CRMSJim Nabors, CRMSNAMB 2005-2006 president, term goals, legislation, education I think that it's a first-column tradition for every president to tell you how honored they are to be given this opportunity. I believe in traditions and am proud to tell you that I feel very, very honored that you have entrusted our great association to my care. I will take very good care of it, and a year from now, I hope that you feel your decision was well placed. Of course, I don't expect to do it alone. I expect to call on as many talented volunteers as I can. If you're interested in joining me for what may be a great adventure, please contact either me or our national office in Washington, D.C. While everyone comes in with a list of things theyd like to accomplish, destiny tends to lead us down paths that we'd prefer not to take. I think that as I write this (May 2), I see four major legislative and regulatory issues: the Department of Labor wage and overtime issue, the pending GSE legislation, the Ney-Kanjorski Responsible Lending Act, and the still-to-be-announced RESPA reform. I hope that my National Association of Mortgage Brokers experience in this area will come in handy. In addition, I have tried to assemble a strong legislative team to deal with them. Education, education, education! We need more courses and more instructors. I've asked Ruth Faynor, CMC, CRMS, FCMS--our education consultant--to specialize in expanding our teaching force. The more well-trained instructors we have, the more education opportunities we can offer our membership. We also need to increase the number of online courses available to our membership as well as all mortgage brokers. As chairman of the Delegate Council this past year, I have tried to make sure that our affiliates have been kept well informed on our progress toward being a self-managed association. Before you know it, Jan. 1, 2006 will be upon us, and I believe our decision to control our own future will pay dividends for years to come. I realize I haven't laid out my complete agenda, but I think you can see we have much to do. Between government issues and self-management, Ill be spending much of my time in D.C. If I dont get the opportunity to attend your state convention, it's not because I don't want to. Many of the past NAMB presidents have told me that visiting the states was the best perk of the job. Saying that, and knowing the time constraints, I plan on using both the Executive Committee and the entire Board in spreading the good news about being a NAMB mortgage broker. I need your support and hope that you will join me in meeting the challenges we face over the next year. Respectfully, Jim Nabors, CRMS, President National Association of Mortgage Brokers
