He served for six years on the trade group’s board of directors and was most recently the 2017 chairman of the MBA's diversity and inclusion committee and has also served on MBA's Board of Directors for six years. Motely also served on MBA's Residential Board of Governors since 2008, including two years as the board’s chairman.
 
Christopher M.

The MBA also named 10 new members to its Board Of Directors: Jonathan H.

“I am honored to serve as MBA’s 2018 Chairman and look forward to the year ahead,” said Motley. “It will be a pleasure to work with both Chris and Brian and together we will ensure that MBA serves its many members, of all sizes, by focusing on the issues that most affect the residential and commercial/multifamily industries."
 
The MBA also paid tribute to longtime veteran of the mortgage profession, Griffith (Griff) J. Straw, with the presentation of its E. Michael Rosser Education MBA Lifetime Achievement Award. Straw is a former Chairman of the Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) Society and currently manages a self-named consulting practice.
