Andrews, broker/owner of Lending Arizona, has served in several high-profile positions at NAMB, including serving as NAMB President in 2015.
“Rocke has been an active member, volunteer and leader of NAMB for more than 20 years,” said outgoing NAMB President Rick Bettencourt. “NAMB has huge momentum right now as our industry accelerates. Rocke brings great leadership to our diverse member-base and unites our industry.”
In a powerful inaugural speech that kicked off NAMB National 2019 in Las Vegas Saturday, September 14, 2019, the largest attended conference in the industry, Andrews made a compelling call to members.
“It’s time to remember that NAMB is for its members. Not one group or another. NAMB is for all its members. And the core purpose and mission that NAMB set in 1973 is more important than ever today. Prosperity for all,” said NAMB President Rocke Andrews in his inaugural speech at NAMB National 2019 in Las Vegas.
Andrews unveiled a new campaign that he explains reasserts NAMB’s industry leadership and core purpose when it was formed by members and for members in 1973. NAMB FOR ALL drives awareness of the significant tools, education and advocacy that NAMB delivers to its members and the industry at-large.
NAMB has been actively lobbying for mortgage professionals for the past 27 years. They’ve contributed to seismic changes in the industry including weighing in on the Dodd-Frank legislation, initiating the SAFE Act that was signed into law in 2008, and writing the model state initiative which was eventually adopted by NMLS. NAMB and its predominantly volunteer-based leadership team continues to build on the milestone accomplishments it has made for the greater part of its 46-year history.
Andrews asked members to come together, “My commitment to you as incoming president is that I will reach out regularly to understand your pain points and where we can help alleviate them. I will always keep you apprised of all the initiatives taking place, but I have one ask. Be an active member. NAMB is a member-based, volunteer association. We need to hear from you. We need you getting involved. We need everyone working together. NAMB for All!”
