Presidents Message

 

Dear WMBA Members,
 
This is my final WMBA President’s Message and I am so grateful to have had a privilege serving as your President for the Wisconsin Mortgage Bankers Association. I am surrounded by amazing peers on the board, committees, chapters and active association members who have helped us raise the bar to make our organization strong and prosperous.
 
Over the last year we have made strides in securing strong legislative relationships, supported charities and families within our chapters, provided educational opportunities to our members, and had fun golfing, bowling and networking with members at various events.
 
On June 7th it was my honor to be recognized as your outgoing President at the Board of Directors Installation Breakfast.  I conducted the installation of your new President, Jan Brezina and new Directors and Officers. Our organization is in great hands!  It was also great to have 13 Past Presidents attend this well-received event.
 
What’s next for me? I am already actively engaged in the Golf Outing Committee (September 12 at The Brute Course, Grand Geneva Resort) and our Best in Business event on October 25th at the Marriot Milwaukee West. Sponsorship and Registration is open for these upcoming events!
 
Let’s keep in touch and let me know if you need any assistance, have ideas for the WMBA or just want to chat about our industry.
 
My best regards,

Joe Doyle
WMBA President 2017-2018

 

2018-2019 Board of Directors Installation Breakfast

On June 7, 2018, over 55 WMBA members and 13 Past Presidents met for the first annual Board of Directors Installation Breakfast.

We were honored with Tracy's presence at this event.
