On March 19th, the NCUA issued guidance for federal credit unions (13-FCU-02) and a new 55-page Fair Lending Guide, which address exam procedures.  Will you need to make changes in your credit union’s underwriting, servicing, and collection procedures?  There are 50 checklist questions in the new guide that could impact these areas.  Do you know how to answer the 10 most important questions?  What are the chances your credit union will be examined under these guidelines?

Join us to learn the most current fair lending “red flags” and “hot buttons” as highlights of the new NCUA guide from the CFBP are reviewed.  The 50 checklist questions related to underwriting, servicing, and collections will be addressed and you will understand how to effectively make any required changes to your policies and procedures.  This session will help you to prepare for an NCUA fair lending exam.
