The Ohio Manufactured Home Association (OMHA) tells MHProNews about their new survey of members that asks some key questions, including:

  • what association benefits do you currently use,
  • and what benefits would you like to see that aren’t currently offered?

This is an interesting topic for consideration, not just for OMHA, but for any association – or potential association.

P.E.P. = The Heart of a Good Association?

An award-winning association executive told MHProNews some time ago that every good association focuses on three core principles:

  • Protect,
  • Educate, and
  • Promote.


Beyond those 3 core focal issues, the OMHA survey asked their members about the following:



Credit, OMHA.

MHProNews would be interested in hearing from not only OMHA members, but that of any association on what benefits professionals believe are the most useful in the manufactured housing industry.  While it may include those items noted above, there are numerous others that could be mentioned too.

CFPB Examining Loan Officer Compensation Rule

March 29th, 2012 Comments off

OriginationNews tells Peter Carroll, the acting assistant director for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) in charge of the Office of Mortgage Markets, is examining the Federal Reserve’s loan officer (LO) compensation rule. Jurisdiction for the rule was moved to the CFPB in July 2011 from the Fed’s control as part of the Dodd-Frank Act. The rule prevents LOs at mortgage firms from benefiting financially from the consumer and the lender in the same transaction. Responsible for how rules affect borrowers and lenders, Carroll says, “We are re-visiting some of the issues around that rulemaking as well as other items that were given to us in the Dodd-Frank Act.”
