2012 Small CU Workshop schedule announced
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (3/1/12)--The National Credit Union Administration's (NCUA) Office of Small Credit Union Initiatives (OSCUI) has announced the schedule for the 2012 round of Credit Union Workshops and Roundtables, with 31 daylong workshops and roundtables set to take place between March 3 and October 27.

CUNA Mutual Group is teaming with the OSCUI to present a series of fraud prevention training sessions during these meetings, entitled "Don't Give Fraud the Green Light – Mitigating Fraud in Your Credit Union." These sessions will "focus on best practices and solutions that help smaller credit unions manage risk and avoid fraud," CUNA Mutual Group senior risk management services manager Brad Mundine said.

During the sessions, credit unions will learn about the latest fraud concerns and control techniques. Best practices to help avoid fraud in the areas of wire transfer, fraudulent deposit, lending and employee dishonesty will be addressed.

"The power of collaboration can't be overstated, and we're proud to be a part of this effort and remain committed to providing risk management resources for credit unions of all asset sizes," Mundine added.

NCUA OSCUI director William Myers said "tapping into the expertise of external groups, like CUNA Mutual Group's specialists on fraud prevention, is a great way to improve the effectiveness of OSCUI's training programs."

The first workshop will be held this Saturday in Phoenix, Arizona. The workshops are free, and while they are geared toward smaller credit unions, representatives from any credit union may attend.

Other 2012 topics include:
  • Issues facing credit unions;
  • What OSCUI is, and what the office can do for credit unions;
  • Examination issues;
  • Asset and liability management; and
  • The duties of federal credit union directors.
