Chapter Meetings

General membership meetings are typically held beginning in September and ending in May. Included in this schedule is an annual legislative update by Tom Dinwiddie, Legal Counsel for the IMBA, as well as our annual congressional update provided by Congressman Peter Viscloskey, who represents Indiana’s First Congressional District.

Geographical Area Served

The Northwest Indiana Chapter serves the mortgage banking industry in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties.

Chapter History

The Northwest Indiana Chapter was chartered in November of 1993 to serve Lake and Porter counties. The chapter has grown over the years and is committed to educating and informing our membership on topics relating to mortgage banking, through regular general membership meetings and seminars.

Community Service and Special Projects

The Northwest Indiana Chapter regularly donates to various local charitable organizations, such as the American Red Cross and Second Harvest, Northwest Indiana’s local food bank.

Earlier, in conjunction with the Greater Northwest Association of Realtors and the Home Builders Association of Northwest Indiana, the chapter had a fundraiser for Haven House of Hammond, a 24-hour emergency shelter for domestic violence victims and their dependents. At this event, approximately $6,500 in cash and products were donated, and included in this were contributions from IMBA members; Fifth Third Bank, Lake Mortgage Company, Meridian Title Corporation, Nations Title Agency, and Palmer Myers.

As a result of these efforts, the outdoor play yard for the Haven House clients' children to have fun at was able to be significantly improved!
