The Bay Area Mortgage Association (BAMA) is an organization through which individuals in the Real Estate Finance Industry exchange ideas in both professional and social settings. BAMA has grown by attracting members who have a commitment to the Real Estate Finance Industry in the region.

BAMA membership includes representation from national providers within the Real Estate Finance Industry; however, our focus is oriented locally, on the greater San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California. The Club’s purpose and success is demonstrated by the sustainability of the organization which has been in existence since 1953. Details on our background and how to join can be found on our History and Membership Pages.

Monthly Dinner Meetings with Presentations related to the Industry, an Annual Golf Tournament and a Christmas Party for Members and their guests. Detailed information about upcoming meetings can be found on our events page.
