With over three decades of experience in the investment and private money lending industry, Dan Harkey is the founder, chief executive officer, and president of CalComm Capital, Inc. Dan Harkey also maintains membership in the California Mortgage Association (CMA).
Formally established in 1999, the California Mortgage Association is dedicated to advancing industry practices and education, improving and clarifying regulations, and encouraging cooperation between the industry and related businesses. To reach the greatest number of people, the CMA has a range of membership options to suit every applicant’s relationship to the industry. Any individual or company that supports the CMA through its products and services is eligible for Affiliate Membership, although affiliate members do not have voting rights. Similarly, the Educational Membership group does not have voting rights and is comprised of brokers and sales people who negotiate fewer than 10 loans a year as well as nonlicensed brokers. Finally, Regular Membership is open to any individual or entity that primarily works with trust deed loans in California.
Members of all groups enjoy a wide variety of benefits. In addition to the CMA’s networking opportunities and resources, members can access its legal resources, join a discussion group, or attend a webinar or other educational seminar. The association also holds two-day, in-depth seminars throughout the year.
