Compliance & Risk Management Workshops
The following is a preliminary list with brief descriptions of educational workshops. (subject to change)
Compliance Hot Stuff: How Will the New Consumer Regulatory World Affect You?*
Hear from federal regulators on consumer regulatory changes and compliance issues facing community banks in the coming year. Learn about new regulatory developments with consumer mortgage requirements, RESPA, Fair Lending, Overdraft Services, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, and Unfair or Deceptive Acts or Practices laws.
Basel III Capital Rules and Community Banks*
Is your bank ready for the new Basel III capital requirements that go into effect in 2015? Hear how Basel III will be implemented in the United States, the exemptions that community banks won, and how the new buffer, minimum capital and PCA requirements will impact community banks.
Fair Lending Compliance*
For bankers and compliance professionals the fair lending exams have been like no other in recent history. Changing regulator expectations, navigating through ever-changing methodologies and statistical analysis, and the new HUD disparate impact rule create a compliance avalanche for bankers. Learn what regulators expect and how to develop and monitor internal procedures to detect and eliminate fair lending violations. Hear how to balance the new mortgage rules that tighten credit standards with the potential fair lending violations under HUD’s new rule.
Management of Third Party Relationships*
Community banks are entering into third party relationships more and more to decrease costs and increase functionality. At the same time, federal regulators have increased their scrutiny of these relationships, issuing additional guidance and in some cases, imposing sanctions. Discuss the pros and cons of outsourcing, the responsibilities of the Board and management concerning third party relationships, and how your bank can establish and maintain a robust and effective third party risk management program.
Stop the Hemorrhaging—What is Compliance Really Costing You?*
86% of community bankers recently surveyed indicated they don’t know what regulatory compliance is costing their institution. Compliance has become one of the largest non-interest expenses and one that banks can no longer leave to chance. Listen as we will demonstrate a process for accurately measuring compliance costs and identifying key culprits that drive costs up (unnecessarily). Learn specific steps they can take to drastically reduce these costs.
Interest Rate Products Enhance Community Bank Competitiveness*
With regulators increasingly concerned about the risk posed by rising interest rates, now is the perfect time to improve your understanding of the financial tools and strategies available to manage that risk. Learn how to utilize interest rate products to protect earnings, preserve capital, increase lending competitiveness, and create efficient fixed rate funding.
