Regulatory Compliance School; NCUA Board Meeting & NCUA Report; Division 3 Update
Written by Steve Van Beek
Just wanted to provide a short note regarding next week. Â
Reg School. Â NAFCU's Regulatory Compliance School takes place next week. Â Our Compliance Team will be in and out of the office next week giving presentations, so please bear with us as our response times will be a little longer than normal. Â The blog will continue as usual. Â
Study Guide & GPS. Â For those attending school next week, we've put together a handy Study Guide to help if you will be taking the exams to obtain your NAFCU Certified Compliance Officer (NCCO) designation. Â Additionally, be sure to download your version of the Updated 2012 NAFCU Credit Union Compliance GPSÂ (you will also receive a hard copy of the GPS at School).
Note: Â For those not attending Compliance School, the Updated GPS will be available for purchase very shortly. Â Blog readers will be the first to know when the Updated GPS is available. Â Â
NCUA Board Meeting. Â Late yesterday, NCUA announced their agenda for next Thursday's NCUA Board Meeting. Â You can find the agenda here.
NCUA Report. Â NCUA also released their March 2012 issue of the NCUA Report. Â This looks to be a good one to read, here is what is discussed:
- Chairman Matz's Corner:Â CFPB Director Cordray Answers Key Questions on NCUA WebinarÂ
- Building Wealth and Deposits: An Opportunity for Credit Unions Ã¢ÂÂ Individual Development Accounts, Part II
- Board Perspective: Interest Rate Risk Policy and Program
- Board Perspective: The Rites of Spring
- Understanding Credit Union Indirect Lending Programs
- Elements of an Effective Member Business Lending Program
- Trends in Member Complaints and Consumer Inquiries
Quite a few of those look like good reads. Â Be sure to pass those along to others at your credit union who might be interested. Â
A quick update on the potential Division 3 basketball matchupÂ between Hope College (my alma mater) and the College of Wooster (my wife's alma mater). Â Wooster held up their end of the bargain but Hope fell in double-overtime.
I was really hoping for this matchup as I thought it would be a lot of fun. Â I can't say the same about my wife. Â Wooster's game finished a good half hour before Hope finally lost. Â She spent the majority of that time on the phone with her Dad - who works at the College of Wooster - discussing the potential matchup and rooting against Hope. Â As she so elegantly stated it: Â "I want Wooster to win and that means Hope needs to lose, so be it." Â Â
