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.
