I am thrilled to share a few thoughts with members of the Nebraska Mortgage Association as we embark on our journey through 2020. As with any journey, there is a starting point that helps define what you must do to get where you are going. Thank you to Danielle for her excellent leadership during the past year. Please know that your Nebraska Mortgage Association is in a great place. Just like the mortgage industry in Nebraska, the Nebraska Mortgage Association is strong in talent and we are strong financially. We hope to use our resources to help educate current and future mortgage lenders while also advocating for our industry both locally and in Washington. To succeed, we need everyone pulling together to support mortgage lending in Nebraska while working to exceed the mortgage expectations and enhance the mortgage experience of borrowers.
