Fair Lending Is Topic Of NCUA April 4 Webinar
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (3/20/13)--The National Credit Union Administration will provide an overview of its 2013 fair lending examination program, and detail fair lending best practices, during an April 4 webinar.

The free webinar, entitled "Fair Lending Examination Program and Compliance Assistance," is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. ET.

NCUA Office of Consumer Protection (OCP) Director Gail Laster and agency staff will present the webinar. The NCUA staff plan to address how the fair lending off-site supervision contact process works, and take related questions during the webinar.

The NCUA said webinar participants may submit questions in advance by sending an email to WebinarQuestions@ncua.gov. The subject line of the email should read, "Fair Lending Webinar." 

The webinar follows the Tuesday release of a letter to federal credit unions (13-FCU-02) that addresses fair lending issues and examinations. (See News Now story: Exam Criteria Addressed By NCUA Fair Lending Letter)

Also on fair lending, the NCUA Tuesday released a new letter to federal credit unions (13-FCU-02) saying it will select a number of federal credit unions to undergo a fair lending examination this year. The letter also outlined the factors that agency examiners will use to determine whether a federal credit union should be subject to further fair lending reviews.
