WASHINGTON (1/7/13)--There is still time for credit unions to take part in the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) examination survey, but that time is running out: the final deadline for responses is Jan. 15.
CUNA and state credit union leagues developed and released the short survey to give all credit unions a chance to describe the strengths and weaknesses of their state and federal regulatory examination experiences. Through the survey, credit unions can detail their own experiences with on-site examinations and discuss how satisfied they are with National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) and state examiner performance, and the results of those exams.
The information gleaned from the survey responses will help CUNA and the leagues hone their exam issue advocacy efforts.
CUNA will again remind credit unions that the deadline for responses is approaching in a Tuesday email.
Advocating on behalf of credit unions to improve the examination process is one of the highest priorities of both CUNA and credit union leagues. A firm grasp of the current state of credit union examination process is needed to ensure that credit unions are effectively represented by CUNA in discussions with the NCUA and state supervisory authorities.
Survey replies are confidential, and identifying information from individual credit union respondents will not be seen by individuals outside of CUNA's Market Research Department. Only summary results will be reported.
The CUNA/league exam survey has been sent to all affiliated credit unions except those in NCUA Region II. Those credit unions already have already participated in a similar survey spearheaded by the New Jersey Credit Union League.
