Conference Topics

Commercial Collections

This session will cover monitoring loans/business organizations, loan documents needed for the most successful collections prospects, UCC treatment of different types of collateral requiring different actions to perfect security interests and ECOA applicability. We will also discuss various ways to enter into negotiations with member businesses, including the pre-negotiations letter, forbearance agreements and environmental issues with collateral.

Compliance Risk from Examiners’ Perspective

Examiners love to ensure that credit union decision makers "show their work." Learn how to develop proper risk assessments and why it is vital that risk assessments be dynamic. The scope and amount of control instituted by the credit union should be in direct proportion to the results of the risk assessment.

Vendor Due Diligence

Examine possible risks associated with vendor relationships and learn what to do about those risks, including developing a dynamic risk assessment program. We will discuss establishing and maintaining a full vendor due diligence program, including tips and tricks for dealing with vendors before entering into contracts. Participants will learn common traps for the unwary and boilerplate language to avoid in contracts.

Mortgage Regulation Amendments

Effective January 10, 2014, portions of the Dodd- Frank Act have greatly affected how creditors service mortgage loans. The new rules require not only that credit unions or their servicers quickly communicate with delinquent borrowers, they also require certain notification of foreclosure alternatives, direct access to servicing personnel, a fair review process and early warnings before interest rates adjust. Learn the new rules and discuss probable areas of concern and confusion in the implementation of these new requirements.

UDAAP Update

We will discuss the CFPB’s guidance on the marketing of credit card add-on features. Real examples of cited violations will bring to life the sometimes nebulous concepts of when an act, omission or practice is unfair, deceptive or abusive. Participants will be able to identify trends for current red flags and possible solutions and responses.

1099 Issues

Learn the identifiable events that require a 1099-C and how to use them in real-world situations. We will also cover record-keeping issues, how credit unions can use 1099-Cs as a collection tool and how the Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act affects creditors’ rights.

Social Media Guidance

Each credit union must decide to what extent it will use social media, using the new guidance from the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council. Participants will gain valuable insight into the FFIEC’s position on developing, training, implementing and monitoring social media policies and procedures.

Liability Protection

Assessing real-life occurrences and things you can do to protect yourself and the credit union.

Dodd-Frank Act

Updating 2013-2014 real estate rules with practical insights.

CFPB in Charge

Learn how this changes the playing field now and in the future – an assessment of CFPB’s supervisory manual and steps every credit union should be taking now.

Commercial Relationships

From an assessment of the most common credit union problems to a complete overview of these relationships. Also – NCUA "Hot Buttons."


Updating obligations, credit union problems and developments including FATCA. We will also address where most credit unions fall short or "miss" on their obligations, and where they make BSA harder on themselves.

NCUA’s Top 10 in 2014

Topics change based on what is current. The speaker will have a meeting with NCUA prior to the event.

Policies, Procedures and "Polcedures"

What policies and procedures do you need and is this based on a law or regulation? Assess what your obligations really are – and where the obligations come from so you can better understand and assess where you need to place your resources – and why.
