REG CHAIRMAN URGES CUs TO COMMENT

Risk-Based Capital Deadline Approaching
As the comment deadline approaches on the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) Risk-Based Capital Proposal (RBC), the chairman of the California and Nevada Credit Union Leagues’ Regulatory Advocacy Committee has made a powerful plea to leaders sitting on the committee to participate in the comment process—and encourage others to comment too.
“In my view, this is one of the most important proposals the NCUA has issued over the past couple of decades,” stated Dave Gunderson, committee chairman and CEO of CU of Southern California, in a letter to committee members. “It has the potential to severely harm the credit union industry.”
He said it’s vitally important credit unions comment on critical proposals that will significantly impact their credit union or the credit union movement.
As of last week, only 51 California and Nevada credit unions had written, or promised to write, comment letters on the RBC proposal. The Leagues’ goal is to reach 150 comment letters.
To help achieve this goal, Gunderson challenged his fellow committee members to not only write their own comment letters, but to email or call three or more of their colleagues and encourage them to comment on the proposal.
“Regardless of your asset size or the immediate impact on your credit union from the proposal, there are several issues on which we should all be commenting,” Gunderson stated. These include:
Gunderson added: “If we don’t comment, we are essentially communicating to the NCUA that the proposed rule is fine, and its passage is of no concern to us. I recognize we all have time and resource challenges—however, I believe responding to the RBC proposal should be a top priority.”
The comment deadline for NCUA’s proposal is May 28. The Leagues echo Gunderson’s sentiments and strongly encourage credit unions to participate in the comment process, as the proposed rule will have a significant impact on the credit union movement.
