MAA Action Week is an event dedicated to helping real estate finance professionals learn how to become more engaged in political advocacy that supports the real estate finance industry.  

Goals during this year’s Action Week are to surpass the year-end MAA membership goal of 20,000 and to exceed 1,000 downloads of the MAA App.  

“Policymakers need to know what you do locally to help families buy their first home, or refinance their mortgage,” Killmer said. “How you work to create rental housing, or how you finance the buildings where your neighbors work or shop. From single-family to commercial and multifamily, from loan originators to investors, we are the force that sustains a safe and affordable real estate finance system, and that message resonates with elected officials. We impact people, jobs and the nation’s economy.”  

The more MAA members who sign up (, the stronger the industry’s voice will be in playing an active role in how laws and regulations that affect the industry and consumers are created and carried out.
