Matz, Metsger to Discuss Credit Union Regulations, Examinations and Initiatives
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (March 20, 2014) – Registration for National Credit Union Administration Board Chairman Debbie Matz’s 2014 Listening Session series is now available online, and Board Member Rick Metsger announced he will be attending with the Chairman.
Registration is free and available here. Participation will be limited by the size of each meeting room. The 2014 Listening Sessions will be open to any topics related to NCUA and will take place before NCUA’s proposed risk-based capital rule is finalized.
“This new series of Listening Sessions will allow credit union officials, NCUA Board members and the agency’s senior staff to talk face-to-face about how we can further improve regulations, the exam process and other agency initiatives,” Matz said. “The last Listening Sessions in 2012 generated many ideas that we later incorporated into NCUA’s rules. I anticipate the 2014 sessions will produce similar results.”
“I’m looking forward to the dialogue,” Board Member Metsger said, “and I hope credit unions will take this opportunity to bring their ideas, their questions and their concerns to us directly.”
The Listening Sessions schedule is as follows:
||1 p.m. – 4 p.m. PDT
||1 p.m. – 4 p.m. CDT
||Regions 3 & 4|
||1 p.m. – 4 p.m. EDT
||Regions 1 & 2|
Participants also will be able to speak with senior NCUA staff and supervisory examiners from the NCUA Regions co-hosting each Listening Session. Federally insured credit unions can determine their regions here.
