Now is your time to help make a difference in the mortgage industry

As we move into February and business is beginning to resemble some sense of normality, we are trying to look forward and ensure the intermediary world works in the best possible way.  To achieve this, we need a Board that guides the agenda, that understands the challenges facing the sector and ensures AMI is focused on the right issues.

So, the Association is about to open up nominations for elections to the AMI Board. This is a great opportunity to give something back to the industry.  The Board is the group that sets the policy agenda for AMI.  The Board meets on 10 occasions each year usually on the 3rd or 4th Thursday of each month excluding August and December.  Meetings commence at 1.30pm and last for two hours.  We expect Board members to attend a minimum of 8 meetings a year.  In addition, we may have other meetings with FCA, other trade bodies or to support the executive, which Board members volunteer for.

In addition to the National constituency (firms with more than 100 advisers – one vacancy) and the Network constituency (one vacancy) we are again looking for nominations to stand for the Practitioner constituency. The Practitioner constituency has three vacancies.  We are looking for individual advisers who are a paid up member or works for a paid up member, who spends a minimum of 70% of their working week advising consumers on mortgages and related needs. AMI would welcome enquiries from any practitioner who would like to take up one of these roles.

In keeping with our work on Diversity and Inclusivity we are seeking applications from people of all backgrounds, knowledge and experience.  We need a varied tapestry of inputs to ensure our thinking is relevant.  Anyone who is interested in considering any of these five roles should make contact with me in the first instance.

Finally, a mention on Consumer Duty.  If you do not know what this is or how it will impact the firm you work in, please take a look at the help on our website.  If you run a business, you should be well on the road by now to looking at how you define your service proposition and reviewing all your consumer communications to ensure they meet the new standards.  Help is available in our Factsheets, so please engage early.
