CU Members Mortgage brings listening, learning, and laughing to the 18th National Mortgage Lending Conference

DALLAS, TX (May 9, 2016) — Offering home loans to members presents both great challenges and rewards for mortgage lenders.  Lenders face a multitude of regulations and work under a compliance microscope, while at the same time creating the dream of homeownership for members.  At times, it can seem impossible to satisfy investor guidelines, tight deadlines and adapt to completely new workflows and processes. Confronted with the complexity in today’s lending environment, CU Members Mortgage, a division of Colonial Savings F.A., offers credit union lending staff an opportunity to listen, learn and laugh at this years’ humor-laden NationalMortgage Lending Conference on October 10-11, 2016, in Fort Worth, Texas.

CU Members Mortgage invites credit unions to take a break from their workday and get refreshed.  Learn the latest trends in mortgage lending, network with your peers and industry leaders, and get excited about lending again.  Plus, discover what happens when “Two Mortgage Lenders Walk Into A Bar…” and even contribute your own punchline for a chance to win.
