Matz Hosting “Listening Sessions” to Hear from Credit Unions

Credit Union Officials Invited to Six Sessions Covering All NCUA Regions

WASHINGTON (March 19, 2012) – National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Chairman Debbie Matz today announced her plan to host “Listening Sessions” across America from May through July.

We want to hear directly from you about how we can improve our examination process, how we can reduce or streamline our regulations, and anything else that’s on your mind.”

Chairman Matz is planning Listening Sessions for the following dates, times, and locations:

​Listening Session Date ​Time ​Location ​NCUA Region
May 2​ 1:00 - 4:00 EDT​ Boston​ 1​
