WHO REPRESENTS ME?

There are two ways to find out who represents you:

  1. Visit the "Who Represents Me?" website and see who represents.
  2. Text (520) 200-2223 with your zip code and you will receive a text back with your US Senator, US Rep., State House and State Senator's phone number.

Note: Keep in mind, it's not totally accurate because some zip codes have multiple districts.


GENERAL INFORMATION

In March 2017, mortgage bankers and associated real estate finance professionals from across the state will participate in TMBA's biennial Advocacy Day. Please help us communicate the importance of our industry to Texas' economy through your support and participation in TMBA's Advocacy Day. We must ensure that the views of Texas' real estate financial industry are heard by our State Legislators as they consider issues vital to the future of Texas housing.

The event begins with a general session, briefing by John Fleming, TMBA's General Counsel, and evening reception on March 20th at the Driskill Hotel. On the morning of March 21st, participants will meet for breakfast and last minute updates. Immediately after, we will walk over to the Capitol for scheduled meetings with key members of the legislature including your Legislators. Based on the information provided on your registration form, TMBA will pre-schedule appointments with your local legislators and/or their staffers.

TMBA represents your interests to the Texas Legislature, but no one's voice carries more weight with your elected officials than your own. By sharing information and industry issues, you will increase awareness, knowledge and boost support for the Texas mortgage industry.
