History of MBAH

MBAH is an adjunct association to the National Mortgage Bankers Association in Washington, DC. For over 40  years, our relationship with the National Association has included having the incoming or present Chairman of the Board of the National MBA visit Hawaii during our annual educational conference.

We have a long history of conferences and conventions, dating back to the days at the Turtle Bay Hyatt (now Turtle Bay Resort) on the North Shore of Oahu. In later years, conferences have been held at the Ihilani Resort in Ko Olina and in Waikiki, in co-operation with HAMB to boost attendance.

MBAH is a partner with the Building Industry Association and the Hawaii Association of Realtors for the annual Parade of Homes industry event. We also are a partner with the Hawaii Bankers Association (HBA) and often cooperate with the Hawaii Association of Mortgage Brokers, (HAMB) on legislative and City Council issues.
