While keeping the membership informed of important industry developments, the MBA recognizes the importance of communicating effectively with our membership through the following membership publications:
MBA Banking Now is MBA’s bi-weekly newsletter that is distributed electronically to MBA members every other Wednesday with important industry news, including events and professional development updates, as well as good news about MBA’s member banks and bankers, and products and services offered through MBA's subsidiary, MBA Solutions, that help our member banks to enhance revenue or reduce expenses.
Published weekly and distributed electronically during the annual session of the Maryland General Assembly, this important bulletin provides a synopsis of key bills as they move through the legislative process. A special "Call to Action" alerts members when grassroots support is needed. Members show support by contacting legislators and voicing their opinion on priority issues facing the Maryland banking industry.
The laws that apply to credit extension in Maryland can be confusing. This survey presents in a basic format a road map through the laws. In this survey, "Maryland Credit Laws" refers to seven different Subtitles of Title 12 of Maryland's Commercial Law Article ("CL") that set rates of interest, charges, and fees, as well as impose other restrictions on credit. All credit extended under Maryland law is subject to one (or perhaps, more than one) of these seven Maryland Credit Laws.
