At the open Board meeting, the Office of Examination and Insurance also conducted a briefing on issues relating to credit unions using supplemental capital for risk-based capital calculations.
At the agency’s budget briefing, NCUA’s Executive Director and Chief Financial Officer presented a detailed proposal for the agency’s 2017–2018 budget, and the Board heard comments from credit union industry stakeholders.
