ALEXANDRIA, Va. (8/19/10)--National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Chairman Debbie Matz has encouraged “all interested parties” to take part in the NCUA’s next town hall, which is set for Oct. 5 in Portland, Ore. The town hall will address portions of the recently enacted financial regulatory reform package that impact credit unions. It also will include NCUA staff presentations on recent NCUA regulatory developments, and several issues that are occurring in both the natural person and corporate credit union systems. In a statement accompanying the release, Matz said that she looks forward to “the same vigorous dialogue and forthright examination of the important issues facing the credit union system at this Town Hall as we saw in previous sessions.” The NCUA has held several live and virtual town halls in recent months, and Matz said that public interaction would be a hallmark of her term as NCUA head. The NCUA held several town hall meetings as it developed its new set of corporate credit union rules. Those rules are expected to be released next month. The NCUA has always benefited from “reasoned, constructive input from stakeholders,” Matz added. For the NCUA release, use the resource link.
