IMLA welcomes new members at any time. Prospective members are welcome to attend meetings to judge for themselves the value they may get from membership.
Membership provides the opportunity for senior management to meet colleagues to review current trends and practices within the market place. Problems being experienced can be freely discussed and solutions or actions put forward which IMLA can then promote with the relevant organisations. IMLA has a strong lobbying voice built on the very substantial practical experience of its members and backed by its Executive Director and our PR agency, Paula John Communications.
IMLA is run by five elected Directors and the Executive Director, Kate Davies, assisted by a number of co-opted Directors . All full IMLA members can make nominations for the post of Director and a ballot is held in November each year to vote in the Directors. IMLA is very clearly member-run and as such it ensures issues relating to the intermediary mortgage market are fully taken into consideration.
Applications for membership are considered by the Management Committee. The subscription year runs from 1st July to 30th June, and the fee for 2024/25, which was agreed at the AGM in November 2023, is £4,000. New members joining part-way through a year will be charged on a pro-rata basis.
