Regulators Meeting

Regulators Meeting June 28, 2012Every other year, MCUN hosts state and federal regulators in a roundtable discussion. The meeting is a great way to foster our positive relationship with the agencies, and to bring issues to the table that will help improve the exam process for Montana credit unions. We did a pre-meeting survey with Montana CEOs in 2014 to address concerns, hot topics, and suggestions they have for their regulators. This allows MCUN management to bring forward the issues anonymously, but also to help advocate for open dialog. We find great value in being able to proactively address trends and find that the meeting always feels positive and productive. The 2016 meeting is not yet scheduled.

Shown here are Tabitha Garvin (COO- MCUN), Melanie Hall (MT Commissioner of Banking & Financial Institutions), Mike Dyer (NCUA Region V Assoc Director of Programs), Rita Roach (MT Credit Union Examiner), Richard Scherrer (MT Credit Union Examiner), Tracie Kenyon (CEO- MCUN), Chris Olson (MT Deputy Commissioner), Donya Parrish (VP Advocacy- MCUN), and Tracy Thornburg (Director Compliance- MCUN).
