Compliance Issues are Complex. Two Upcoming Sessions Will Help.

With the Trump Administration’s recent executive order broadly aimed at regulatory relief, it remains to be seen how that will affect individual credit unions. In the interim, the regulatory environment remains unchanged at the federal level.

However, with ongoing advocacy from credit unions, particularly through the CUNA Campaign for Common Sense Regulation, it’s clear that change is happening, and soon. Two upcoming events from your Association will help untangle the common issues compliance professionals will be seeing.

The upcoming Compliance Council will convene Northwest credit union compliance professionals to socialize issues they face daily, and leverage the collective intelligence of their peers.

“Compliance Councils offer a great way for professionals to connect and discuss regulatory challenges facing their credit unions, while devising strategies to implement them,” added Katie Clark, CUCE, BSACS, Regulatory and Compliance Analyst for NWCUA.

The Compliance Legal Update will bring the trusted presenters from Strategic Link partner Farleigh Wada Witt, Brian Witt and Hal Scoggins, to provide insight on current legal issues affecting credit unions, including major new and proposed NCUA and CFPB regulations and other operational topics.

“While there’s a different focus in Washington, the regulatory avalanche continues until there is concrete action,” added David Curtis, CUCE, Director of Compliance Services for NWCUA. “The session will look at relevant, timely information for Northwest credit unions to draw on right away.”

The Compliance Legal Update location is still being determined, but will likely be near Portland International Airport. Click here to learn more and mark your calendar for the June 26 event.

The Compliance Council, scheduled for February 23, is the first of three sessions slated for 2017. Seven locations across Idaho, Oregon, and Washington will be connected via videoconference. To see where you can connect with the Compliance Council, click here.
