NAFCU launches The Regulatory Affair

March 6, 2014 – NAFCU yesterday launched The Regulatory Affair, a new monthly enewsletter that delivers information about regulatory developments and provides expert insight on those developments to NAFCU member credit unions.

The Regulatory Affair is written by Mike Coleman, NAFCU's director of regulatory affairs. A member-only publication provided free as a benefit of membership in NAFCU, the newsletter kicked off Wednesday with a look at recent developments in the nomination and confirmation process for Mark McWatters, the president's pick to succeed Michael Fryzel on the NCUA Board, and NCUA's risk-based capital proposal.

Coleman points readers to several helpful resources on the proposed capital rule, including the association's Regulatory Alert 14-EA-03, related posts on the NAFCU Compliance Blog and a capital reform issue page on NAFCU's website that provides links to all of NAFCU's information on the proposed rule, which also includes published editorials and comment letters.

"The current regulatory environment is more complicated than ever before," Coleman noted in Wednesday's inaugural issue of The Regulatory Affair. This new enewsletter is aimed at helping make sense of it all, providing readers "a quick, colorful and informative update on important issues affecting your credit union."
