The Hawaii Association of Mortgage Professionals has ushered in a new President for 2014. After serving two consecutive terms as President, Jodie Tanga now gives way to incoming HAMB President Tiare Fullerton. This is an exciting time for HAMB and for Tiare Fullerton, who is very excited about the opportunity.
Unique among loan officers, once the home closes, Tiare remains in touch, always informing and educating about loans and what may help you down the road. Tiare didn’t just walk into this profession; she literally started on the ground floor of the industry in 1992. She worked in the accounting department of a nonprofit, a loan processor for IMC Funding Group, a vault teller for Bank of America in Japan, and a loan processor (knowing how to present the loan papers for an underwriter to review and approve) and senior loan officer for Bank of Hawaii; which all led up to being the co-owner, VP, broker and senior loan officer of Mortgage Associates of Hawaii. Find out more about Tiare here.
Below is the statement she released on the HAMB website:
Aloha fellow mortgage originators and affiliates,
I am humbled by your trust and confidence, and challenged by the year ahead of us, with its new laws, regulations and continuous rate of change in the mortgage lending industry.
I would like to take this time to thank President Jodie Tanga for her two consecutive terms of service to our association, as well as her guidance and assistance. I would also like to thank her Board of Directors for each of their time and commitment these past two years and to the 2014 Board for their hard work and dedication to our industry. Please take the time to thank them when you see them at events.
Over the last 21 years our Association has grown stronger and more effective in representing our industry to State legislators and most recently to our State licensing authority. Our National Association continues to represent us on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C..
We face challenges with the new forms and regulations effective at the first of the year and we will be hosting educational events through the year to help us all understand the changes as they occur. I hope to see you all there, and please bring your friends and co-workers. Non-members will be charged more, but the difference is applicable to membership dues if a person becomes a member by the day of the seminar.
I really want you to understand that HAMB is YOUR association and I anticipate and appreciate your involvement and feedback in the form of questions, comments, observations, and most importantly, your time and commitment in our Associations committees, events and educational opportunities.
I am excited for 2014 and I look forward to seeing you all soon!
