New Blog Shares Unique Insights on How Credit Unions Can Become More Meaningful to Members Through Home Financing
FAIRBORN, OH (July 10, 2013) Tim Mislansky, President of myCUmortgage and Senior Vice President and Chief Lending Officer at Wright-Patt Credit Union (WPCU) recently created “Mortgages are Memberlicious,” a blog comprised of a collection of his thoughts and observations on how credit unions can become more meaningful to their members through home financing. The blog, which can be found at www.mortgagesarememberlicious.com, is meant to inspire credit unions to become more active in real estate lending.
“I believe credit unions are the best source for Americans to get a home loan,” says Mislansky. “We’re locally-owned and operated. We’re not-for-profits. And we’re based on cooperative principles. Unfortunately, only about 7% of Americans seem to agree with me. But, I am out to change that!”
Mislansky, who has spent more than 20 years dedicated to credit unions and their members, has served on Fannie Mae’s Credit Union Advisory Council Board, the Prime Alliance Advisory Board, and the Ohio Credit Union Foundation Board. He currently serves on the Mortgage Cadence Advisory Board, and the board of directors for both the American Credit Union Mortgage Association and CU Realty, Inc. He is involved in the local Habitat for Humanity and has served on the advisory board for the HomeOwnership Center of Greater Dayton and been part of Filene Research Institute’s i3 program.
“I’ve been fortunate to have had a lot of great opportunities and have met some really talented and innovative people,” says Mislansky. “I hope to use these experiences and insights on “Mortgages are Memberlicious” to cause credit union leaders to re-think what their credit union is, or isn’t, doing to help their members with mortgages. I encourage credit union leaders to follow the blog and help us collectively grow our market share. For if credit unions are helping more Americans with home ownership, we become more meaningful in their lives.”
