NAFCU's 2018 Spring School kicks off today

Credit union professionals from across the country are gathering today in Arlington, Va., to kick off NAFCU's 2018 Spring Regulatory Compliance School. Attendees will learn about the latest rules and compliance requirements affecting their credit unions' operations.

The school runs through Friday and is open to NAFCU members and nonmembers.

"Each year, NAFCU's Regulatory Compliance School provides attendees with a solid understanding of the regulations and laws governing credit unions' operations so that they are prepared for a variety of new and ongoing compliance challenges," said Brandy Bruyere, NAFCU's vice president of regulatory compliance and a NAFCU Certified Compliance Officer (NCCO). "The sessions at this year's spring school are led by some of our industry's top compliance experts, who will cover everything from the regulation of share accounts to lending and Regulation Z, and other hot compliance topics."

School presenters include Bruyere and other members of NAFCU's compliance team, including NAFCU Special Counsel for Compliance and Research Pamela Yu, and Regulatory Compliance Counsels Stephanie Lyon (NCCO and NAFCU Certified Risk Manager), Jennifer Aguilar (NCCO), Reginald Watson (NCCO) and André Cotten (NCCO).

Topics to be covered at school include:

  • NCUA supervision and examinations;
  • Regulation Z (Truth in Lending Act);
  • Regulation E (Electronic Fund Transfer Act);
  • Military Lending Act;
  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) website compliance;
  • Regulation C (Home Mortgage Disclosure Act); and
  • Cybersecurity.

NAFCU Regulatory Compliance School attendees will receive a free copy of the association's Credit Union Compliance GPS electronic manual. They'll also be able to earn the award-winning NAFCU Certified Compliance Officer (NCCO) designation and network with other credit union professionals and compliance officers.
