Benefits of Membership: Enhance Your Knowledge and Networking

We are committed to keeping CMA members at the forefront of the private lending industry by providing these services:

Educational Seminars

We believe education is the key to maintaining the edge our members need to meet their daily business challenges. Several times per year we offer in-depth seminars, including valuable members-only sessions.


Are you a new mortgage broker or interested in getting your California broker license? Rub shoulders with experienced private money lenders at our quarterly seminars.  Members are happy to give advice and lend a hand.  You will be productive sooner with this inside knowledge.  Plus you will have access to seminar notes, checklists, and rule changes.

Looking for hard money deals or investors? This is the place to get those deals done!

Points of Interest Magazine

The quarterly magazine, Points of Interest, keeps our members abreast of current industry issues and legislative changes and provides a showcase for members.

Legislative & Regulatory Advocacy

Through proactive lobbying to our state representatives, we ensure our member and industry needs are being represented and protected. CMA is instrumental in articulating and advancing the issues and concerns that are most important to our members.

Member and Vendor Directories

The CMA membership and vendor directories are an invaluable resource for networking with peers or seeking out the service of particular affiliate members. The directories also serve the broader California business community by providing access to CMA members.

Members have access to a database of presentations, documents and videos from past educational seminars attended to review a specific topic or research a new area of interest. This archive serves as a valuable archive of our collective knowledge.
