CHICAGO (7/10/14)--The National Credit Union Administration's second of three Listening Session of 2014 starts today at 1 p.m. (CT) in Chicago. Almost 170 people are registered for the event.
The session is intended to give credit unions a forum to discuss what is on their minds directly with their federal regulators. The agency's risk-based capital proposal was the primary topic during the previous session in Los Angeles in June, and is expected to be front and center today as well.
NCUA Chair Debbie Matz, board members Michael Fryzel and Rick Metsger are expected to attend. Other top-level NCUA staff will be on hand.
The California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues have posted audio clips of the California session to their website (see resource link). CUNA will also post the California session audio on CUNA.org--and NCUA will post recordings of each listening event over the coming weeks. (News Now July 9).
A third and final Listening Session will take place July 17 in Alexandria, Va. The event is currently full, but a waitlist is available on the NCUA website.
