CAMP statement on BRAWL

The CAMP Board of Directors has decided to take the following position in regards to BRAWL. We support NAMB and its mission statement. The Board of Directors values our relationship with NAMB and will continue to support and build that relationship to be mutually beneficial for CAMP and NAMB and our members.

Karen Aguayo-Bates, CAMP President

  • CAMP will not comment on or engage in conversations about BRAWL – it would be unproductive for us to take a side or participate in this debate.
  • CAMP is an Affiliate of NAMB, but CAMP is an independent association – NAMB’s views or positions on any subject do not necessarily reflect the views of CAMP or its members.
  • CAMP represents all mortgage loan professionals in the State of California and we will not favor one channel over another.
  • CAMP supports healthy and fair competition because strong competition leads to better customer service and better pricing for consumers.
  • CAMP opposes unfair or unethical business practices that harm, or have the potential to harm, consumers or stifle competition.
  • CAMP will continue to focus its energy on educating loan originators and providing them with the tools and information to be successful and grow their businesses.

CAMP wants to thank and recognize all its chapters for the amazing support at Summer CAMP 2017! A special thanks to Greater Sacramento Area Chapter for being the largest contributor to the CAMP Legislative Fund!
