Fred Arnold CMC (CAMB President), “Smitty” Ed Smith (CAMB President-elect), and George Duarte CMC (GA Vice Chair) met with some of our industry partners recently in Sacramento in order to forge a better understanding of our collective common interests and create a strategy for promoting a unified front to our state regulators and legislators. In particular, that correct implementation of the Federal SAFE Licensing Act could provide a positive outcome to raise professional standards within the mortgage industry and at the same time provide legislators a win for consumer groups as well.  A WIN, WIN for all parties!
