MBA has eight residential committees that report to the Residential Board of Governors (RESBOG). The chairs of these eight committees serve one-year terms on RESBOG as non-voting members.
The State Legislative and Regulatory Committee (SLRC) focuses its attention on state legislation and regulations that affect the real estate finance industry. The SLRC deals primarily with residential lending issues, however, when commercial or multifamily lending issues arise they are addressed accordingly.
The SLRC holds a Monthly Exchange Call. Please contact committee staff for more information.

If you would like to get more involved in MBA, consider volunteering for this or one of MBA's seven other residential committees. Any employee of an MBA member company may join one or more of these committees. However, you must be an employee of a member firm. Individuals who are no longer employed by an MBA member company will be removed from committee rosters.
What do the residential committees do? Actually, they perform a number of functions. In conference calls, e-mails and in-person meetings, they advance MBA's advocacy agenda by providing a forum for the analysis of legislative, regulatory or industry issues.
They also serve as a means to inform Association staff of any emerging real estate finance issues. They are one of the primary means through which Association policy is developed. The committees are also communication tools for professionals within the industry. Lastly, the residential committees are also a method by which future MBA leaders are identified and developed.
