NAMB reaches agreement with Japanese counterpartMortgagePress.comNAMB, JMPA, George Hanzimanolis, Friend of NAMB, Takahiko Yoshida NAMB President George Hanzimanolis and JMPA President Takahiko Yoshida (seated) sign the historic NAMB/JMPA agreement during the recent NAMB/WEST event in Las Vegas 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 home. 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. For more information, visit www.namb.org.
