History of NAPMW- Houston
History of NAPMW
On February 12, 1964, nine women with 161 years of combined experience in various fields of mortgage banking met in Seattle, Washington to consider the need for an organization to promote women in the mortgage lending professions. On April 22, 1964, the first association, to be known as the Seattle Association of Professional Mortgage Women, was officially formed. Other areas began to show interest in a similar organization. In February of 1967, the National Association of Professional Mortgage Women was chartered for the purpose of organizing Local Associations throughout the United States. Today, the Association is composed of approximately 4,500 members in over 80 Local Associations.
The National Association of Professional Mortgage Women (NAPMW) is a community of professionals who engage in the mortgage/banking industry. Men and women from all backgrounds have joined NAPMW because they want to excel at what they do. And employers who want excellence from their employees engage with NAPMW for up to date education. Both professionals and employers have found there is a place for them in NAPMW.
NAPMW is not a women’s organization. But since women make up the majority of professionals in the mortgage/banking profession, our purpose is to help them advance in business, personal and leadership development. We believe this is a cause everyone can stand behind. We also believe by providing the highest quality and most comprehensive education to our members – both men and women – they will be able to best serve their customers and succeed in their careers. If you believe in helping to elevate the educational standards in this industry, or assisting in developing the most competent industry workforce, then you believe in NAPMW. If you want to find a place where education, networking and life-changing results occur, then NAPMW is the place for you.
