Hood Risk mitigation speakers announced
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (7/2/08)-- National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Vice Chairman Rodney Hood released the speakers list for the upcoming Risk Mitigation Summit on August 7. The summit, to be conducted at the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, is a free, one-day event highlighting the latest trends in risk management and analysis from both an operational and oversight perspective. Top leaders from both government and industry will address innovative techniques for risk mitigation. Currently slated to speak are:
* John Hope Bryant, founder, chairman, and CEO of Operation Hope, Inc.; * Nathaniel Wuerffel, AVP Enterprise Risk management for the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago; * Leo Tilman, noted as a credit and interest rate expert; * Donna Gambrell, director of the U.S. Treasury Department’s Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI) Fund; * Chris Copeland, corporate risk manager, CUNA Mutual Group; and * John Kutchey, director of the division of risk management, NCUA’s Office of Examination and Insurance.
Hood unveiled his speakers list at the Corporate One FCU Enterprise Wide Risk Management (ERM) Conference. Addressing that gathering, Hood said that fully adopting ERM plans is the best strategy for credit unions to prepare for the new risk-based exams. He added, “A key priority of mine as a regulator is to focus on maintaining the safety and soundness of America’s credit unions while encouraging the economic growth and opportunity for their members. Managing risks successfully, not simply avoiding them, is essential in accomplishing this mission.” Use the resource link below to visit the NCUA website for more summit information.
