September is celebrated in some quarters for National Bourbon Heritage Month, National Honey Month and National Prostate Health Month. Now, thanks to the effort of Greensboro, N.C.-based United Guaranty, September is also officially recognized as “National Mortgage Professionals Month.”

The National Day Calendar, an organization that determines special day, week and month celebrations of industries, professions and events, issued a proclamation for September to become National Mortgage Professionals Month. This is the latest month-long celebration related to housing, following April as Fair Housing Month and June as National Homeownership Month.

“The hard-working professionals in our industry are enormously deserving of having September set aside to celebrate the important work they do in helping families and individuals purchase or refinance a home that is right for their needs and budget,” said United Guaranty Chief Operating Officer Brian Gould. “We’re pleased to recognize outstanding individuals. These are demanding jobs and many of these professionals don’t get enough recognition for helping so many people with what is one of the most important decisions of their lives,” Gould said.

United Guaranty is kicking off this new observance with a month-long contest for mortgage professionals, with 240 electronic memo tablets for prizes. Contest details are online at
