“Our mortgage team is deeply honored to receive this designation. We’re committed to  creating a positive social impact, and this recognition helps us to continue fighting for a  more equitable and inclusive financial landscape,” said Elizabeth Million, Senior Vice  President of Lending at Elevations. 

NAMMBA, a leading advocate for diversity and inclusion in the mortgage industry,  established the ASIL program to recognize organizations committed to making a  positive social impact through their lending practices.  

Through its collaboration with NAMMBA, Elevations Credit Union will actively participate  in initiatives aimed at expanding access to mortgage financing for underserved communities, providing financial education and resources, and promoting diversity and  inclusion within the mortgage industry.
