GREENSBORO, NC, August 18, 2015

To honor the efforts of the thousands of professionals nationwide who have dedicated their working lives to helping families and individuals achieve the dream of home ownership, United Guaranty successfully initiated an effort to have September officially recognized as National Mortgage Professionals Month.

National Mortgage Professionals Month has been proclaimed by the National Day Calendar, which is often cited in national media for its registry of day and month designations, like National Farmers Day (October 12), Medical Assistants Recognition Week (October 19–23), and National Book Month (October). The official proclamation of National Mortgage Professionals Month is being announced to more than 10,000 media outlets.

To celebrate, United Guaranty is awarding up to 240 prizes—electronic memo tablets—to mortgage professionals who share their stories about the rewards and challenges of their jobs. Entries submitted to can be very brief or highly detailed.

During each week of our celebration, United Guaranty will select winners through a random drawing to receive a Boogie Board® Memo tablet with an ultra-thin LCD writing screen for jotting down facts, figures, and reminders.

"The hard-working professionals in our industry are enormously deserving of having September set aside to celebrate the important work they do in helping families and individuals purchase or refinance a home that is right for their needs and budget," said United Guaranty Chief Operating Officer Brian Gould. "We're pleased to recognize outstanding individuals. These are demanding jobs and many of these professionals don't get enough recognition for helping so many people with what is one of the most important decisions of their lives," Gould said.
