WASHINGTON (7/9/14)--The National Credit Union Administration will begin posting audios of its June 26, July 10 and July 17 Listening Sessions within the next few weeks. Although the forums are open to any topic, the NCUA's risk-based capital proposal dominated the discussion at the June gathering in Los Angeles and promises to do so at the final two sessions.
Originally, the agency had not planned to record the sessions. However, the NCUA has subsequently said that within a few weeks of each gathering--which is the amount of time the agency expects it will take to transcribe the audios to comply with federal laws on closed captioning for the hearing impaired--the recordings will be posted to the NCUA website.
This week's session in Chicago will be attended by NCUA Chair Debbie Matz, as well as board members Rick Metsger and Michael Fryzel. The sessions are scheduled to run from 1 to 4 p.m. (CT) Thursday. Watch News Now for coverage.
