Re-elected for a second term, Michael Staton (vice president and mortgage officer at CPC Mortgage Company) and Sarah Garland (managing director at CBRE) will serve as co-chairs of the Affordable Rental Housing Advisory Council.
“With the ability to leverage the unique expertise of our membership, the MBA’s Affordable Rental Housing Advisory Council can play a key role in bringing innovation and a diversity of ideas to address the crises of affordability, equity, and sustainability facing our rental housing and the people who call it home,” Staton said. “Given the lending industry’s influence and impact on the nation’s housing ecosystem, it’s important that we lead from the front in addressing these challenges. I’m honored to co-chair this committee and thank the MBA for its work to create real change in cities large and small throughout the country.”
“The Affordable Rental Housing Advisory Council allows us to identify issues, both legislatively and programmatically, and proactively address those issues to make an immediate impact on the tenants that need it most. The power of the MBA then allows us to be represented and lobby for the changes that we need,” Garland said.
