... Inside New NCUA Regulation Changes will be the topic of a webinar on Jan. 9, being facilitated by attorney Rob Rutkowski. While the CFPB continues to crank out new regulations daily, the NCUA has a long established system of reviewing existing regulations and opining on new ones. This insightful presentation covers the new NCUA risk management expectations, new NCUA approaches to credit union boards, the newest focus points of NCUA examinations, new liquidity requirements and other hot issues that NCUA has reviewed or will be reviewing. The session is priced at $129 per connection and takes place from 1-2 p.m. (ET). A complimentary archive which may be downloaded, saved and shared makes this a great topic for review by board members. Learn more and register here.
