About

FWMBA

The Fort Worth Mortgage Bankers Association, a nonprofit organization of residential and commercial real estate professionals, is dedicated to promoting opportunity and homeownership for our neighbors in the North Central Texas region. Special Thanks to Michael Patterson of PeirsonPatterson, LLP for his continued support of the FWMBA through luncheon sponsorships of current officers and past presidents.

Education

We offer continuing education for Loan Officers and Realtors. In addition, we encourage members to pursue the Certified Mortgage Leader (CML) program through the TMBA, or the Accredited Mortgage Professional (AMP) designation by completing all three of the School of Mortgage Banking classes, or participating in the Future Leaders program, or becoming a Certified Mortgage Banker (CMB) through the MBA.

Networking

Each month, we offer multiple opportunities for networking with other mortgage & real estate professionals and other partner professionals that support our industry. Come to a monthly luncheon at Ridglea Country Club, attend a happy hour, sign up to play or sponsor our joint DMBA / FWMBA annual Golf Tournament, or come to our Holiday Luncheon in December or our End of Year Luncheon in May.

Advocacy

We support both the TMBA and MBA’s efforts to represent our interests as an industry and work with legislatures to increase awareness, knowledge, and boost support for the mortgage industry. We encourage all of our members to join the TMBA Advocacy Army AND MBA’s Mortgage Action Alliance (MAA). We also encourage all of our members to individually support the TMBPAC and MORPAC with monetary donations.

Scholarships

We have a rich history of supporting our local colleges and providing $2,000 scholarships annually to students at TCU and TWU. We also provide a $2,000 FWMBA Legacy Scholarship to a member (or their children or grandchildren) to pursue higher education. There are also opportunities for members to be awarded scholarships from the TMBA Endowment Fund or and the James M. Wooten Scholarship.
