  • It was surprising to see NRMLA come out with the referenced alert.  While Michael has a significant post at HUD, it hardly seemed to merit the alert.

    So the question begs why did NRMLA make this announcement.  Doing this makes it look like that when NRMLA does not do this for those of equal and higher rank NRMLA has some kind of “special” relationship with those they do announce.  That may mean nothing to some and bring up questions with others.

    The alert seemed odd when issued and still seems odd.
