About The Chapter

The Chicago Chapter, like all RMA chapters, is organized and run by volunteer members. We strongly encourage current or prospective members to become involved in shaping the future direction of the chapter by contacting any of the current officers or committee chairs. We would also be happy to discuss the many benefits that can be derived from membership in RMA.

Why Should I Become a CRC?

In today's rapidly changing financial services industry, credit and lending professionals will continue to play a critical role in shaping the risk profile of their respective institutions. The CRC is the only recognized professional designation for credit and lending professionals, and earning it gives you added credibility among colleagues and clients alike. As a credentialed risk professional through RMA, you demonstrate a commitment to the credit risk industry and a level of industry knowledge that has been recognized by an objective, outside organization.
