Stevens, President and CEO of the Mortgage Bankers Association said in his opening remarks at 2015 MBA Commercial Real Estate Finance Convention (CREF) held last week in San Diego, California.
Stevens went on to describe that the MBA’s voice was instrumental in encouraging Congress to reauthorize the Terrorism Risk Insurance Act (TRIA) on January 12, 2015. However, Stevens commented, “A loud powerful voice from industry is absolutely critically important. The most concerning thing about our Call to Action on TRIA was that it showed how few of you are members of the Mortgage Action Alliance.”
