9:00 am – 10:30 am Compliance Management System and UDAAP

NCUA examiners expect your credit union to have a comprehensive compliance management system that will identify, measure, monitor and control compliance risks. They are looking for you to develop a written, comprehensive CMS policy that describes just how compliance works at your credit union.

  • Our discussion will cover the three "pillars" the examiners expect in your CMS: Board & Management Oversight, Compliance Program and Consumer Harm.
  • You will be provided with some examples of examiner "red flags" concerning UDAAP.
  • In order to get you started writing a strong CMS policy or to update yours, an outline for a Compliance Management System Policy will be provided.

2:00 – 3:30 pm Compliance Training - What's Required & How to Spice it Up!

It’s required. It’s been completed. But was the training material understood and retained by the employee? After all, training should be more than just checking the "completed" box. Training has the ability to improve capabilities, productivity, capacity and overall performance. While credit unions typically have training programs in place to cover the required compliance topics, are your employees being trained on HOW to apply these rules and regulations through an understanding of your credit union’s policies and procedures? During this topic we will discuss how to engage the employee to make the learning experience more effective. We will also review the expectations of an effective compliance training program including identifying compliance training that should be conducted on an annual basis.

Learning Objectives:

  • Steps to create an effective training program that includes regulatory compliance and the credit union’s policies and procedures.
  • Sample exercises to customize to your internal policies and procedures
  • Effective ways to test for understanding
  • Template for written test questions
  • Listing of regulatory training requirements including best practices
  • Additional resources of free financial training material to use with staff and in customer outreach opportunities.
