Going “regtech” for compliance

CUNA Compliance Management eSchool to cover regulators’ expectations

February 5, 2021

Credit union compliance staff will learn federal regulations for compliance management and dig into the tools and technology they can use to improve their systems by attending CUNA Compliance Management eSchool March 9, 12 and 19.

“There is now an increased expectation from federal and state regulators for credit unions to have a strong compliance management program in place,” said Jess MacLagan, instructional design manager at CUNA and a former credit union compliance officer. “Not only that, but credit unions are expected to know the ‘ins and outs’ of the system they have in place.”

Attendees will also learn how to audit their compliance management program and how RegTech (regulatory technology) can support the goals of their compliance program.

Sessions scheduled for the eSchool are:

  • Compliance Management Systems – A Regulatory Perspective – led by CUNA Compliance Counselors Whitney Nicholas and Patricia O’Connell
  • Compliance Auditing – How is Your CMS Performing? – led by Stephanie Cartwright, regulatory compliance consultant and former compliance officer at Pelican FCU
  • Using RegTech to Manage Your Compliance Management System – led by Tracy Blaske, director of compliance solutions for CUNA who held the positions of compliance officer and CEO in a 20-year credit union career
