WASHINGTON (7/14/14)--The Credit Union National Association has made available a full audio recording of the National Credit Union Administration's June 26 Listening Session held in Los Angeles, as well as key audio clips of that session. The audios have been posted to CUNA's website.
The primary focus of the session was the NCUA's risk-based capital plan, with a lively back-and-forth dialogue between participants and NCUA representatives (News Now June 27).
About midway through the session NCUA Chair Debbie Matz made it clear that "everything is on the table" regarding possible changes to the RBC plan proposed in January. While she said the agency is not required to put a revised version of the proposal out for a separate comment period--beyond the one that concluded May 28--she also said very clearly that there is "no rush" to the finish line on this rule.
A second Listening Session occurred in Chicago July 10, and a third is scheduled for Thursday in Alexandria, Va. CUNA will post audios for those sessions also.
