The American Credit Union Mortgage Association has aimed its September conference at helping credit unions better understand both their members' mortgage needs and the variety of different ways they could help meet them.
"Attendees will go away with a solid grasp of the pulse of the market," said ACUMA President Bob Dorsa. "They will understand the kinds of mortgage loans consumers need, the kinds of consumers who are in need, and the most profitable ways to deliver the products and best serve consumer needs."
A solid grasp on the current state of the market gives credit unions the essential tool it needs not only to outlast the economic recession but also to thrive in the economic recovery, the association said.
For the first time as well, ACUMA will broadcast the proceedings of the Sept. 15-18 conference over the Internet through ACUMAtv.com.
"In the consumer space, credit unions are the best-kept secret," says Bob Dorsa, ACUMA's president. "Our organization is dedicated to making credit unions a household term, which is why we've chosen to broadcast the conference online. Anyone who's working toward America's economic recovery needs to take a good look at credit unions--and that includes realtors, consumers and credit unions."
