Small CU Workshops continue this week
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (3/25/10)—The 2010 Small Credit Union Initiative Workshops and Roundtables continue as the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) hosts sessions in Philadelphia and Omaha, Neb., tomorrow. The agenda for each workshop, like the one in Philadelphia this week, offers sessions on topics such as regional issues facing credit unions, how to positively impact the bottomline, and regulatory hot topics. The workshops also offer an outreach panel featuring community organizations, which explores resources and partnerships for credit unions. That presentation is followed on the agenda by two breakout sessions, which focus on:
* Allowance for Loan Lease Losses (ALLL): guidance on ensuring that a credit union’s ALLL methodology is adequate in today’s economic environment; and * Alternatives to Predatory Lending: strategies to combat the influence of predatory lenders and to help with members’ financial education while learning new methods to successfully address forms of abusive lending.
The Roundtables, generally held in smaller metropolitan areas than the workshops, offer the same topical agenda but not usually the outreach panel or breakout sessions. The NCUA’s first workshop this year was held March 6 in Phoenix, Ariz., and 66 credit union representatives attended. At the second, on March 11 in Richmond, Va., there were 77 workshop registrants. After this week’s session, there are 25 remaining workshops and roundtable set up through November of this year. The sessions are organized under the auspices of the NCUA’s Small Credit Union Initiative Workshops. That office was established by the agency in 2004 at the urging of then-board member, now-chairman, Debbie Matz.
