All Audio Sessions Posted Soon
The National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) three listening sessions in Los Angeles, Chicago, and Alexandria, VA are finished—and the agency said it’s “incorporating comments and ideas from the sessions into its work, including the ongoing review of the agency’s proposed risk-based capital rule.”

Besides NCUA’s risk-based capital proposal, other issues garnering attention at the listening sessions were examinations, interest rate risk, and the role of small credit unions. Audio recordings of each session will be available in the near future on the agency’s website.

The NCUA “will take into account” the input by credit unions on risk-based capital to improve the final rule, the agency stated in a news release. “For starters, we plan to lower the risk weights on investments, mortgages, member business loans, credit union service organizations and corporates, as well as extend the implementation period,” said NCUA Board Chairman Debbie Matz.
