iCompBlog Wrap-Upi reports on CUNA lending school more
WASHINGTON (9/10/12)--In the August edition of the Credit Union National Association's (CUNA) CompBlog Wrap-Up, CUNA Federal Compliance Counsel Colleen Kelly lays out the latest compliance tips from this summer's new CUNA Lending Compliance School, and provides details on the eight regulatory proposals that are currently out for public comment.

The CUNA Lending Compliance School, which was held in Las Vegas early last month, addressed, among other items:

  • The Equal Credit Opportunity Act;
  • The National Flood Insurance Program;
  • Decoding lending examinations;
  • The Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act;
  • Tips on fair lending compliance; and
  • The Home Mortgage Disclosure Act.
Credit union compliance experts from across the country gave their tips on how best to stay out of regulatory trouble, and some of their comments are covered in this month's Wrap-Up.

The latest edition of the Wrap-Up also offers a question and answer section on international remittances, and details on several NCUA letters about topics ranging from multi-featured lending plans to interest-rate risk.

As it does every month, the August CompBlog Wrap-Up lists the upcoming effective dates of new regulations, important compliance articles and reports to read, as well as CUNA training programs.
