ACUMA announces partnership with NAMMBA
MIDDLETON, WI (June 29, 2022) — The American Credit Union Mortgage Association (ACUMA) announces that as of today it will begin a partnership with The National Association of Minority Mortgage Bankers of America (NAMMBA). Headquartered in Middleton, WI, ACUMA focuses on supporting the credit union mortgage lending industry through educational and networking opportunities.
NAMMBA’s partnership with ACUMA supports NAMMBA’s Mission 2025 – it’s goal to connect 50,000+ students to the real estate finance industry by the year 2025. With a more diverse talent pool comes fresher ideas and innovations, and NAMMBA is excited to have the collaboration with ACUMA to help achieve its objectives.
“This partnership with ACUMA will be great for NAMMBA’s mission to increase the engagement of women and minorities in the mortgage banking industry,” said NAMMBA Founder/CEO Tony Thompson, CMB. “This mission cannot be achieved on our own, so we are happy that ACUMA is taking action to show their commitment to diversity and inclusion.”
“Strength comes from diversity, whether that diversity is found in the workplace or among the growing ranks of diverse homeowners,” says Peter Benjamin CMB, president of the American Credit Union Mortgage Association (ACUMA). “Extending homeownership to and for all has always been ACUMA’s objective. We hope our partnership with NAMMBA will strengthen each organization’s efforts, enabling both of us to be even more effective serving our members, and current and potential homeowners.”
