The 2017 Committees

Affordable Housing & Education Committee: The purpose of the Affordable Housing Committee (AHC) is to provide knowledge and understanding of the home buying or refinancing process as it pertains to low moderate income individuals and families. This is achieved through numerous seminars and expositions designed to attract clientele that may not realize their home purchasing ability and the proper steps necessary to reach that goal. The events are planned and/or conducted by members of the AHC to make the public aware of the possibilities that exist to assist them in obtaining or retaining affordable housing in the Columbus market area.

In regard to the Education aspect of this committee, they are to acquire and disseminate correct, current information on rules and regulations affecting the mortgage loan industry. They provides a means of sponsoring or conducting business meetings, or programs of interest on various pertinent subjects. They also promote uniformity of practice, where uniformity is desirable. It affords the opportunity for those engaged in business to secure the benefits or personal acquaintance and interchange of ideas both by individual and public discussion.

Application for membership in either class shall be considered only when proposed in writing by a member of either class, who shall submit to the members of the association, in connection with such proposal, such information as may assist them in passing on the qualifications of the candidate. Membership is obtained by having two readings at consecutive General Meetings followed by a ballot to lenders. There must be a return of 1/2 of the ballots and 4/5ths of the clear ballots shall be necessary for admission to the association. It is the responsibility of the committee to make clear the qualifications to any applicant and secure the needed documents.
