The Mortgage Bankers Association said Wednesday that its annual convention will begin on schedule in Orlando, Fla., this Sunday despite the fact that Hurricane Wilma is threatening the southern part of the state."Nothing has changed," said a trade group spokeswoman. "We are not canceling." Paul Green, the MBA's senior vice president of corporate relations, issued a statement saying that the MBA is closely tracking the hurricane but that, based on "facts being provided by the National Hurricane Center," Hurricane Wilma will be "well south" of Orlando. The storm is expected to make landfall in the next few days, reaching the South Florida mainland late Saturday night.
