General Information

On November 6th & 7th, TMBA's Annual Educational Seminar & Marketplace will bring together hundreds of real estate finance professionals to listen to dynamic speakers from the industry. Register today to participate in this year's Educational Seminar which will be unlike any prior year, with more exciting opportunities than ever to display your Company to Texas Mortgage Bankers.

The MED Talk theme is breaking the mold for the typical seminar agenda, eliminating the long keynote speeches from singular speakers in favor of a more contemporary format using a TED Talk inspired structure. We are creating additional sessions aimed at increasing attendance from a more diverse group of attendees, including technology, operational, and compliance decision-makers.
