WASHINGTON, D.C. (October 3, 2018) - The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) and the American Credit Union Mortgage Association (ACUMA) today announced a new education and training partnership that will offer members of ACUMA discounted access to MBA Education products.
"We are proud to partner with a great organization like ACUMA to offer access to MBA's award-winning education programs," said Tricia Migliazzo, MBA Vice President of Member Engagement. "MBA and ACUMA already share many members, but we hope this agreement will encourage other ACUMA members to avail themselves of the latest insight and knowledge that MBA's instructors have to offer."
"ACUMA's specialized focus on credit union mortgage lending and related real estate issues is different than MBA's broader focus as the one voice for the entire real estate finance industry," said Bob Dorsa, ACUMA President. "However, working with MBA will give our members access to great resources to improve their lending operations and educate their workforce." ACUMA members will receive a discount on all MBA Education products available for retail sale, except for the Advanced Risk Management course taught in collaboration with the University of Maryland. The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) is the national association representing the real estate finance industry. Its membership of over 2,300 companies includes all elements of real estate finance. ACUMA a non-profit trade association committed to promoting credit union mortgage lending.
