State Government Advocacy efforts brings the voice of credit unions to Sacramento and Carson City. Our advocacy team works daily with elected officials, staff, the executive offices, gubernatorial appointees, and the decision-makers of California and Nevada. This area will keep you updated on all advocacy efforts at the state level of Government.
Attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and speak directly with NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz and some of the agency’s top officials regarding the Risk-Based Capital proposed rule, as well as other supervisory and regulatory topics.
To assist attendees in preparing for the Listening Session, the Leagues will provide talking points and materials in advance of the meeting. In addition, the Leagues will host a briefing at 11 a.m. for credit union attendees immediately prior to the Listening Session, which will be held at the hotel location. Details are forthcoming.
Regarding the Risk-Based Capital proposed rule, League Vice President of Regulatory Advocacy Sharon Lindeman said: “The best outcome is withdrawal of the proposal. Short of that action, significant changes are needed. It is important for credit union leaders to attend the Listening Session and speak about the specific impact or harm the proposed rule will have on their credit union, and offer constructive suggestions on how to mitigate or eliminate that harm.”
NCUA’s local Listening Session will be held June 26 from 1-4 p.m. at the Westin Bonaventure Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. Registration is limited to 150 attendees; there are approximately 30 seats still open. Click here to register.
Talking points and details on the League’s briefing will be provided soon.
