Legislative Advocacy: MORBANPAC

What is MORBANPAC?

MORBANPAC is the non-partisan political action committee of the Michigan Mortgage Lenders Association. It operates at the state level to support elected officials and candidates whose philosophies and positions support the real estate finance industry.

2016 Fundraising Campaign

The fundraising goal for this year is $35,000.  Because it is an election year, these funds are more important than ever!   This may seem like a lofty goal, but if every MMLA member gives just $25 each, we will hit it easily!  Do YOUR part and contribute today!

  • MORBANPAC is completely independent and bipartisan. State candidates and elected officials are judged strictly on their merits.
  • MORBANPAC’s funding consists entirely of voluntary contributions from people interested in the real estate finance industry. Corporate contributions are not permitted.
  • MMLA’s Legislative Committee works closely with Karoub Associates, our legislative consultants, to make the most of our PAC donations.
  • Individual member contributions to MORBANPAC help us to maximize our impact on state government.
  • MORBANPAC is a valuable tool in our fight to protect the real estate finance industry... a donation from MORBANPAC conveys a message to candidates and elected officials from our industry of united support.

We need your help. As a member of MMLA, we encourage you to contribute to MORBANPAC to help support our future. The amount of your contribution and choice of whether to participate is entirely your decision. If you have any questions regarding MORBANPAC, please talk to a member of the MMLA’s Board of Governors or call the MMLA office at (586) 226-2823.
