ALEXANDRIA, Va. (April 26, 2013) – National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Member Michael E. Fryzel and National Association of Federal Credit Unions (NAFCU) President and CEO Fred Becker today discussed important credit union industry issues during a panel discussion at NAFCU’s 2013 CEOs and Senior Executives Conference in Sonoma, Calif.
“Conversation-centered dialogue like the one that took place today with NAFCU continues to be an efficient way to address a wide range of topics important to credit unions,” Fryzel said. “These types of panels provide a forum for credit unions to receive answers to important industry questions and to hear those answers from two different perspectives. Credit unions gain valuable insight that can be used to apply direction to the opportunities and challenges we face as an industry.”
The pair took questions from the stage at the Fairmount Mission Inn. Discussion items included:
- The legislative outlook of credit unions
- The dynamics of a two-person board
- Member business lending and supplemental capital as they relate to credit union efforts on Capitol Hill
- Taxation and credit unions
- The growth outlook for credit unions in 2013
- The status of NCUA’s Office of National Examination and Supervision
- Expected rules for credit unions in 2013
- NCUA’s derivative rule
- The role of the NCUA’s Office of Consumer Protection
