    I agree as a broker we get little value from caamp however brokerages that belong usually make their agents and brokers belong too. Just a cash grab.

    It is unfortunate that this organization really does not represent brokers who are the key to this industry moving forward, we originate the deals and they reep the glory, as well big national lenders have a tremendouse amount influence, it is time for a real organization representing brokers, leaders who are exclusively brokers with no major lender attachment or history

    Look, this is a great board. Congratulations to everyone
    Jim and Michael do a great job running things despite the
    criticisms about board make up. This is mortgage professionals not
    just brokers. If you don't like it run and get elected

    If over 60% of the membership of CAAMP are active mortgage brokers and agents why don't we change the constitution of CAAMP to require the at least 50% of the Board be composed of active brokers. Why don't we have CMP ask that question of Mr. Murphy.

    And while we are at it, why don't we change the criteria for the Hall of Fame so one inductee per year must be an active broker as well?

    too bad we don't have more mortgage agents/brokers represented, I fully agree with Ron Butler, what is going on?

    With the banks using mortgage brokerage's and their agents and brokers as mules to grow their market share I do not understand why any brokerage would join CAAMP. It seems an association for the broker is the place to be like IMBA in Ontario
