Collections: Not Sure What Happened? Was a Good Loan When I Made It!
Instructor: Dr. Paul Withey. See bio.

As credit union professionals, we hope our borrowers will repay us. However, loans can experience payment disruptions. Collection efforts begin before we accept a loan application. Together, we will learn how to use the past, present, and future to establish sound credit union collection policies, procedures, and best practices. In this session, attendees will roll up their sleeves and dive right into building a strong small credit union collection department (with policies, procedures, and dos and don’ts) while keeping true to our core credit union philosophy.

Small Credit Union Compliance Updates
Instructor:  Nate Behncke See bio.

This session will include a small CU-focused look at recent and upcoming changes to various areas of compliance, including:

  • Handling mandatory Powers of Attorneys
  • Beneficial ownership requirements for opening business accounts under the BSA
  • Revocation of the Cole Memo, and impacts on BSA
  • ADA website compliance
  • CFPB’s Payday Lending final rule
  • Military Lending Act
  • Regulation CC

Hot Topics
Instructor: Lorri Gaither. See bio.

Credit unions operate in an incredibly fast-changing world. Fortunately, there are many resources available through the Cornerstone Credit Union League and other organizations to help you stay current and up-to-date. This session will cover changes that can impact your credit union as well as provide you with resources to help you thrive.
