Credit Union Officials Invited to Discuss Regulations, Exams and More
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (Feb. 20, 2014) – National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Chairman Debbie Matz today announced plans to host three “Listening Sessions” across America in June and July.
Similar to Chairman Matz’s Listening Sessions in 2012, the 2014 sessions will be open to any topics related to NCUA.
“This new series of Listening Sessions will be an opportunity for NCUA Board members and senior staff to hear directly from credit union officials about how we can further improve regulations, the exam process, and any other NCUA initiatives,” Matz said. “My previous Listening Sessions led to regulatory relief and streamlined examination reports. We are looking forward to another productive series of face-to-face meetings with credit union officials and stakeholders.”
Chairman Matz is planning Listening Sessions for the following dates, times, and locations:
||1:00-4:00 pm PDT
||1:00-4:00 pm CDT
||3 & 4|
||1:00-4:00 pm EDT
|1 & 2|
Registration for all Listening Sessions will be free online. Participation will open to the first 150 people who register. Participants will have opportunities to dialog with NCUA Board members, senior NCUA staff, and supervisory examiners from the NCUA Region(s) co-hosting each Listening Session. These sessions will take place before NCUA’s proposed rule on risk-based capital is finalized.
