The Colorado Mortgage Lenders Association (CMLA) has announced its speaker lineup for its Annual Convention in Vail, Colo. Set for Wednesday-Friday, Aug. 3-5 at the Vail Marriott Mountain Resort. The event will feature networking events, speaker presentations and breakout sessions covering important topics and trends affecting the mortgage industry.

Headlining this year’s lineup is best-selling author Tommy Spaulding, a world-renowned speaker on the topic of leadership, who has shared his wisdom with hundreds of organizations around the globe. His first book, It’s Not Just Who You Know: Transform Your Life and Your Organization by Turning Colleagues and Contacts Into Lasting, Genuine Relationships, quickly climbed to the top of The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today national bestseller lists. His latest book, The Heart-Led Leader, published by Penguin Random House in October, 2015, is a New York Times and number one Wall Street Journal national bestseller, and was also listed as one of Inc.com’s Top 100 Business Books of 2015.

This year’s conference will also feature Rodrigo López, chairman-elect of the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA). López has been actively involved with MBA for almost three decades, and is a former chairman of the MBA’s Commercial/Multifamily Board of Governors. He was the recipient of MBA’s Distinguished Member Award in 2010, MBA’s Burton C. Wood Legislative Service Award in 2002, and MBA’s Master Faculty Award in 2000.

Also joining the lineup is U.S. Rep. Scott Tipton, representative for Colorado’s 3rd District. Rep. Tipton serves on the House Committee on Financial Services, and is Vice Chair of the Congressional Western Caucus. He is also the co-founder of the Congressional Small Business Caucus, a bipartisan caucus committed to open dialogue on the issues that most impact small businesses. Prior to his involvement in politics, he spent over 30 years running a small business.
