Mortgage Action Alliance

The Mortgage Action Alliance® is the premier grassroots lobbying organization representing the entire real estate finance industry. Affiliated with the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA), MAA enables you to speak directly with your members of Congress, state legislators and federal regulators about the impact of proposed legislation or regulations on your business.

Mortgage Internship Program

Internship programs are an excellent way to facilitate success at a business and are evolving into an excellent recruiting tool for businesses looking to bring students and young professionals into their organization. For students, the internship begins the decision-making process regarding possible career options.

CMLA is the only Mortgage based trade organization in Colorado that retains a full-time lobbyist which ensures the legislative interests of its membership. We are proactive in promoting the interests of membership to the legislature, agencies, general public, media and affiliated trade associations.

Scholarship Program

CMLA awards TWO $5,000 merit scholarships to designated Colorado college applicants each year. The scholarship recipients will also participate in CMLA’s internship program to ensure optimal exposure to the mortgage banking industry’s values, consumer benefits, and career opportunities.
