New Liquidity Requirements
New regulatory requirements associated with the National Credit Union Administration’s (NCUA) final rule on Liquidity and Contingency Funding Plans (Part 741.12) become effective on March 31. These new requirements will apply to all federally insured credit unions.
NCUA has released Supervisory Letter 14-03, which provides federally-insured credit unions helpful information regarding the exam process with respect to the new liquidity and contingency funding rules. The supervisory letter accompanies the release of the portion of the AIRES Questionnaire that has been added to cover the new liquidity and contingency funding rules.
In addition, NCUA’s Letter to Credit Unions 13-CU-10 also contained guidance on how to comply with the liquidity and contingency funding rules.
NCUA ‘Listening Session’
The Leagues also encourage credit unions to register for NCUA Chairman Debbie Matz’s June 26 Listening Session in Los Angeles. Due to space constraints, registration is limited to 150 people.

This may be done by emailing the MLA helpdesk at firstname.lastname@example.org.
