The National Association of Mortgage Brokers has announced an
agreement with its Japanese counterpart, the Japanese Mortgage
Planners Association (JMPA), to share training and membership
resources. As part of the information sharing program, NAMB will
also have access to JMPA events in Japan.
We are very excited about this new partnership with our
colleagues from Japan, said NAMB President George Hanzimanolis,
CRMS. By learning from the best practices of mortgage professionals
around the globe, we can make our industry even stronger here at
Under the new agreement, NAMB will help JMPA develop its own
programs on member education, ethics and consumer advocacy. In
addition, JMPA members will use NAMBs code of ethics and standards
of practice as a model, while still operating within Japanese laws
and regulations. The Japanese brokers will receive several
complimentary registrations to NAMB events, and JMPA will designate
one representative to be a Friend of NAMB.
This agreement is about more than just sharing information, said
Hanzimanolis. In a very real way, our two organizations will be
helping each other grow the Mortgage Broker profession. I know that
this cooperative agreement will provide our members, as well as
JMPA brokers, with substantial value.
