> Webinar: Cracking the Code on Risk-Based Examinations: 10 Techniques to Ace Your Next Exam

Your credit union should view a regulatory examination as an opportunity to show off your operations, instead of treating it as an enemy invasion. How much time and effort is diverted from member service every time you prepare for an examination? Regulators are more risk averse now than ever, and credit unions are feeling increased pressure. While examiners are spending more time in your office, you are spending more time away from your core mission. But with smart preparation, more scrutiny doesn't have to mean more time spent on compliance.

Don’t forget that regulatory examinations are open book tests! Regulators are not trying to surprise you and they provide plenty of notice of their intended targets – if you know where to look. This webinar will cut through the “regulatory speak” and show how concentrated preparation around key regulatory and operational issues can put examiners at ease and get you back to member service. This session will review the current regulatory climate and core regulatory concerns, as well as reveal the best practices for planning, preparing, and engaging the examination team. Don’t be ill prepared for the new realities of credit union examinations.
