Tracy Ashfield is the President of the American Credit Union Mortgage Association (ACUMA), an organization with which she has had close ties for 20 years.
Ashfield has worked as a consultant and subject matter expert with ACUMA since 2000. In that time, working with founder and former president Bob Dorsa, she has helped the non-profit grow from a handful of members to an organization with more than 400 mortgage-lending credit union leaders.
In that same time, credit unions have seen their market share grow from 2% to nearly 9%. And ACUMA is now the premiere education and networking association for credit unions that are serious about mortgage lending.
During her years with the association, Ashfield has been the curator of ACUMA’s event programming, bringing relevant and timely educational content to the growing list of members.
Ashfield is a well-known figure in credit unions with nearly 30 years in mortgage banking leadership roles at numerous mortgage banking firms. She also headed Mortgage Development for CUNA Mutual Group. In 2000 she created Ashfield & Associates, a consulting and training firm that assists credit unions, large and small, with mortgage lending strategy, program development, policies, product design, training and strategic planning.
Ashfield is passionate about credit unions and mortgage lending. She’s a frequent speaker, guest lecturer and trainer. She has developed and delivered hands-on, results-driven curriculums to regulators, examiners and lending executives.
Ashfield received her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of New Hampshire, and she is a Graduate of The Mortgage Bankers Association’s School of Mortgage Banking.
