Mortgage advertising webcast on Wednesday

May 12, 2014 – Credit unions will learn the ins and outs of mortgage advertising rules in a NAFCU webcast Wednesday set for 2 p.m. Eastern and featuring Steve Van Beek.

Van Beek, an attorney with Howard & Howard and former vice president of regulatory compliance at NAFCU, will speak during the webcast on the complexities of mortgage advertising, focusing on the "how and why" of creating compliant mortgage advertisements. He will also explain how specific rules apply to different products – such as how the rules vary for home equity lines of credit versus closed-end mortgage loans – and how "trigger terms" in advertising determine which disclosures are required.

The webcast is open to all credit unions and is geared toward meeting the needs of credit union executives, chief loan officers and advertising and marketing staff. NAFCU Certified Compliance Officers will receive 1.5 continuing education credits with an affidavit of attendance.

NAFCU has a compendium of resources about CFPB mortgage rules on its website, including information about final rules, blog posts, articles and webcasts.
