Hunt talks 5-point plan, RBC in panel discussion

April 25, 2014 – NAFCU's Carrie Hunt discussed the association's five-point plan for credit union regulatory relief and NCUA's risk-based capital proposal during a Meet the Regulators panel discussion Thursday with the Association of Credit Union Senior Officers.

Hunt, NAFCU's senior vice president of government affairs and general counsel, responded to questions about the association's five-point plan and the traction it has received on Capitol Hill. She also shared the association's views on NCUA's risk-based capital proposal and how it relates to the capital reform advocated through NAFCU's plan.

Housing finance reform also came up, and Hunt reiterated the importance of maintaining access to the secondary mortgage market during such a transition.

The discussion was held at EasCorp in Massachusetts.

Hunt also delivered a "virtual" (online) board briefing Wednesday for State Farm FCU in Bloomington, Ill., with an interactive update on the credit union industry and the latest in Washington. Virtual briefings are available to NAFCU members as a benefit of membership; to schedule one, contact Carolyn Sable at 703-842-2240 or
