He served as President of the association in 2006 where he led the effort to pass minimum standards for mortgage brokers working in the State of Colorado. The regulation, passed in 2006, required all mortgage brokers within the state of Colorado to obtain federal background checks and become registered to practice origination in the state.
Jason has participated on the BBB Trade Practices Group, Colorado Housing Council, & testified before House & Senate sub-committees on the impact of pending legislation for the mortgage industry.

Most recently, Jason has partnered up with Todd Carpenter to create REBlogWorld, a conference and exposition to be held September 19th - 21st, that will focus on blogging and social media for the mortgage and real estate verticals. It promises to be one of the largest technology gatherings for real estate professionals in 2008.
