Annual Day at the Capitol

A big part of the Mortgage Bankers Association of Missouri is the monitoring and promoting of legislation affecting the mortgage banking industry with the Missouri legislature. Our association has held a strong presence since the late 1970’s in the Missouri State Capitol and every year we offer a Mortgage Bankers Association of Missouri Legislative Day at the Capitol. Open to the entire membership of the Mortgage Bankers Association of Missouri, the day typically consists of meeting key legislators on the banking committees, leadership of the House and Senate, touring the Missouri Capitol and attending House and Senate hearings. This event also provides a time for networking among the membership as members from both sides of the state attend.

Our Annual Day at the Capitol is Wednesday, February 13th, 2019.
