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 $75 for the manager/CEO and $35 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 .

MAA Workshop, Luncheon & Business Meeting

The next annual MMA Workshop, Luncheon & Business Meeting will be held Thursday, May 16, 2019 in conjunction with the MSCUA Annual Meeting & Convention.

2019 MMA Workshop:
“Hair-On-Fire!” Presentation Skills
Presented by Mandi Stanley

Discover—and even practice—what you need to know to speak up and stand out during client meetings, tours, interviews, onsite meetings, and other professional interactions. Learn how to organize your thoughts—and not ramble. Leverage your “Three-Minute First Impression,” what you absolutely must do in the first 180 seconds to build rapport and credibility with the people you meet. We’ll even discuss the final word on handshaking etiquette (because we ALL encounter some bad handshakes on the job). Learn the secrets to controlling your body language, and best of all: stop saying “and uh.” All of this—plus chocolate for everyone.  You’ll laugh! You’ll learn! You’ll leave with your “Hair-On-Fire!”
