Get Involved

Why should you get involved with MISMO?

  • Be a part of the action: Collaborate with other industry experts to solve important business issues. Lend your voice directly to the standards development process. Participate in the standards development process to get an early view into new reporting requirements and to ensure that they are reflective of your sector of the industry.  Getting involved is the best and quickest way to build your expertise around the standards.
  • Influence the industry and potential regulatory reporting: Our industry is facing more than 100 new housing regulations under the Dodd-Frank Act alone. Now we also have the newly revised HMDA rule and new reporting requirements related to the Uniform Residential Loan Application (URLA).   With these regulations and reporting requirements comes the burden of additional reporting requirements.  Without the availability and adoption of standards, each agency would create its own proprietary reporting formats and, as you can imagine, costs would spiral for every lender, servicer and vendor in the industry.
  • Be an industry leader: Join MISMO. Take advantage of the opportunity to position your company with leadership in data standards - become a MISMO Champion.
