MBA Seeks COMBOG Committee Nominations by April 30

The Mortgage Bankers Association’s Commercial Real Estate/Multifamily Finance Board of Governors (COMBOG) Nominating Committee seeks members’ recommendations for individuals to serve on the Board beginning this October in the Investor, Lender, Mortgage Banker and Servicer categories. This is an important process that determines the leadership for MBA’s commercial/multifamily membership.

COMBOG consists of MBA member executives representing all aspects of the commercial/ multifamily real estate finance industry. COMBOG leads strategic development of MBA’s commercial/multifamily policy and initiatives, as well as best practices and standards. 

To ensure we are diverse, inclusive, and equitable in our approach, recommendations should include diversity characteristics such as: race, gender, generation, ethnicity, geography, as well as other diversity dimensions including LGBTQ individuals and people with disabilities.

In accordance with the COMBOG bylaws, individuals should be able to speak on behalf of their company and be actively engaged in the business of their firm.

The following should be considered when recommending candidates:

  1. Active participation in MBA through councils, committees, task forces, working groups or other MBA activities
  2. Leadership in the industry
  3. Geographical, age, ethnic and gender diversity
  4. The nature of the business in which the individual is employed, i.e., originator, lender, investor, etc.

Please submit your recommendation by Friday, April 30.

On behalf of the COMBOG Nominating Committee, thank you in advance for taking the time to recommend candidates for MBA’s COMBOG. We look forward to receiving your suggestions.
