It is a great honor to be the incoming President of the MLAA, a professional association which thrives by providing “a forum for sharing ideas, open communication and education of the mortgage lending industry in Alberta”. For over 100 years we have been the voice of the real estate arena and will continue to be significant contributors to existing members and generations to come.


At the board, we will work together this year to enhance our platform and focus on providing additional education value to young professionals and new members while ensuring that our long lasting members are kept up to date with industry trends and move our marketing and social media platforms into the digital era.


I would like to extend my thanks to those who came before me and to all members for making this a great place to build Alberta’s Real Estate future.
