The Mississippi Managers Association (MMA) provides credit union leaders an excellent platform to share information about the experiences, challenges and triumphs faced in managing a credit union.  It is a “support group,” designed by and fueled by credit union professionals.

Among the benefits of MMA membership are networking & training opportunities, as well as the opportunity for MMA members to apply for educational scholarships to assist with their continuing education & professional development.  The goal of the Managers Association is to help members grow professionally!

MMA annual membership dues are $50 for the first person from your credit union and $25 per person for each additional person.  Membership dues are typically submitted annually at the time of/along with your credit union's MSCUA membership dues, but credit unions can join the MMA at any time.  To join the Mississippi Managers Association, or if you have a question about your membership status, please contact .

The credit union environment has changed. The days of intense member loyalty, single sponsor support, and healthy, consistent growth are all but distant memories for many credit unions. The way you run the credit union, implement your strategies, and maximize your team’s potential must evolve to keep up with the rapid rate of change.  Simply put, it doesn’t matter what you did to be successful yesterday – those days are over. It only matters what you will do to be successful into the future. Prepare yourself for a glance into the future and discover what you will need to do to be ready for tomorrow’s challenges.
