What is the YMPA? The YMPA is a diverse network that was built to position young professionals with the tools that they need for a long-term and successful career in the mortgage industry. The negative perception that exists outside of the industry can be swept away with the next generation. For those of us currently working in the industry, we know firsthand that growth and opportunity is abounding. With the average age of a Loan Officer being 54 and a Realtor 59, a space is created for the next generations to refuel the mortgage industry. The millennials are the largest generation in American history and we want to encourage them to join this great sustainable industry that is alive and well. Through this proactive effort to refuel the mortgage industry, the Young Mortgage Professionals Association was formed. The YMPA is committed to supporting the millennial, aged 18-34 years old, in building strong, supportive relationships and strategic partnerships in the mortgage industry. Through recruiting and by providing training & educational opportunities, we will assist the young mortgage professional in reaching his or her full potential in their career. Through shared interest and utmost integrity, together, we will improve the negative perception of the industry. We will explore how best to ensure the end customer has the finest experience in the most protected environment. A.C.E. Attract. Connect. Educate.
