'Mortgages Are Memberlicious' Blog Touts CU Home Financing
FAIRBORN, Ohio (7/12/13)--A new blog, "Mortgages are Memberlicious," discusses how credit unions can become more meaningful to their members through home financing.

"I believe credit unions are the best source for Americans to get a home loan," said Tim Mislansky, who established the blog. "Unfortunately, only about 7% of Americans seem to agree with me. But I am out to change that."

Mislansky is president of myCUmortgage and senior vice president and chief lending officer at Fairborn, Ohio-based Wright-Patt CU. The blog represents his thoughts and observations and is meant to inspire credit unions to become more active in real estate lending, he said.

With more than 20 years' experience with credit unions and their members, Mislansky 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 on the boards of American Credit Union Mortgage Association and CU Realty Inc.  He also has participated in the Filene Research Institute's innovation group, i3.

By writing the blog, he hopes "to cause credit union leaders to re-think what their credit union is, or isn't, doing to help their members with mortgages."
