MBA/NWO began in Toledo in 1988.
The membership year runs from January through December.
We are a non-profit unincorporated association.
Monthly meetings are generally scheduled for the third Tuesday of each month, with the exception of June, July, August, and December.
Programs feature speakers of interest ranging from current industry events happening in Northwest Ohio and the mortgage and financial industry. Longer education programs may be scheduled when current topical information occurs.
The annual inauguration of officers and directors is a banquet held in January. An award is given in honor and memory of William Hodupp, one of the pioneers of independent mortgage banking in Toledo.
Several other special events, primarily social in nature, are scheduled throughout the year. The annual golf outing is named for Red Barron, one of the association’s founders and the first president. A guest bartender night and wine tasting event have also been popular events to raise money for charities. UT tailgate parties, chartered river cruises, and the Lights Before Christmas at the Zoo have been other fun events held in the past.
