NCUA Listening Session Registration Opens Online
The NCUA opened registration on its website for the 2014 listening sessions with NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz and Board Member Rick Metsger on Thursday.
The NCUA said participation in each listening session will be limited by the size of the meeting rooms. The events are open to any topics related to NCUA.
The agency said the listening sessions are going to take place before the NCUA’s proposed risk-based capital rule is finalized.
The events will take place in Los Angeles on June 26, Chicago on July 10 and Alexandria, Va. on July 17.
“This new series of Listening Sessions will allow credit union officials, NCUA Board members and the agency’s senior staff to talk face-to-face about how we can further improve regulations, the exam process and other agency initiatives,” Matz said. “The last Listening Sessions in 2012 generated many ideas that we later incorporated into NCUA’s rules. I anticipate the 2014 sessions will produce similar results.”
Board Member Metsger said he is looking forward to the dialogue with credit unions.
“I hope credit unions will take this opportunity to bring their ideas, their questions and their concerns to us directly,” he said.
