    Nation's Top Bank Regulator To Speak at MAHA's Annual Meeting

    MAHA's 2012 Annual Meeting on December 3rd will feature remarks from the nation's leading bank regulator, Thomas J. Curry, Comptroller of the Currency.

    Thomas J. Curry was sworn in as the 30th Comptroller of the Currency on April 9, 2012 after being nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate.

    The Comptroller of the Currency is the administrator of national banks and chief officer of the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC). The OCC supervises more than 2,000 national banks and federal savings associations and about 50 federal branches and agencies of foreign banks in the United States. These institutions comprise nearly two-thirds of the assets of the commercial banking system. The Comptroller also is a director of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and NeighborWorks® America.

    Prior to becoming Comptroller of the Currency, Mr. Curry served as a Director of the FDIC since January 2004, and as the Chairman of the NeighborWorks® America Board of Directors.

    MAHA's home neighborhood of Dorchester recognized as one of the nation's most diverse

    When MAHA decide to build our homeownership center, one neighborhood made the most sense - Dorchester. Now, four years later, Dorchester is being recognized for its diversity by a national publication.

    The Atlantic Cities website asks, "What do these neighborhoods have in common? Although many, like Queens Village and Dorchester, are within the city limits, they are not the densest, most central, or best-known neighborhoods. None of the top-10 most diverse neighborhoods in the country is a familiar name to out-of-towners. Also, some of the most diverse neighborhoods in America are located in metro areas that aren’t especially diverse overall, like Seattle (67 percent white) and Boston (69 percent white)."

    MAHA is proud to call Dorchester home.
