What is I.A.M.P.?

The IAMP (Illinois Association of Mortgage Professionals) is a 20 year old statewide professional organization representing Mortgage Professionals. Whether you are a mortgage loan officer for a bank, a mortgage banker or a mortgage broker, or an account representative for a wholesaler, this professional organization is for you.

We, at Benchmark Title, noticed that this organization had no representation here in the metro east area, or anywhere downstate Illinois. The IAMP is very big and a well respected organization, yet there were no members that I was aware of in the downstate area. With that I contacted Marve Stockert, the Executive Officer of the IAMP and discussed the issue of forming a Southern Illinois Chapter of the IAMP. The ball began to roll rather quickly and we had our organizational meeting and educational program on July 16th 2008 at the Four Points Sheraton Conference Center. There were in excess of 30 professionals in attendance at that meeting.

Here are just two very good reasons that this is a good thing for you, the mortgage professional in this area. 

Illinois law requires that all mortgage loan officers, with the exception of Loan Officers working at banks, pass a test and become licensed by the state as well as have a certain amount of continuing education to maintain their license.

                      The IAMP provides many courses to fulfill that requirement, either in class courses or 23 courses on-line at www.mortageeducationfoundation.com.

Legislative issues have become a large factor in your industry, both federal and state.

                      The IAMP has a very active legislative group that researches all proposed legislation, federal and state to be sure that any factors relating to your industry are passed on to you for your input.

The IAMP also provides many seminars over the year with highly qualified speakers with a wealth of information to share with you.

Donít let this opportunity pass to make a difference in your industry.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Marve Stockert at mstockert@iamp.biz or John Howe at jhowe@benchmarktitle.net.
