Our weekly blog addresses issues and topics of interest for Montana credit union board members. 

Essential Compliance Training

upcoming webinar

Responsibility for regulatory compliance ultimately rests with the board. Compliance is no longer an area directors and senior management can be passive about. But weeding through thousands of pages of guidance can be daunting – especially to those new to the industry. The upcoming webinar Essential Compliance Training for the Board and Senior Management (the last in the 2016 Director Series from our partner the Credit Union Webinar Network) will help you understand your responsibilities and liabilities before the examiner is at the door.

In 90 minutes, the webinar will address the important information about high-risk areas and cover your required annual training. The "live" webinar is Wednesday, December 14 from 1-2:30 p.m. MST, but you can purchase the recorded webinar to play at one of your regularly scheduled board meetings. Find out more and register online.

At the bottom of this page, you'll find links to past blog posts organized (loosely) into four categories. Feel free to browse. The blogs are all fairly short and provide food for thought in the areas of directors' duties and responsibilities, advocacy, working with the CEO, and ideas for strategic planning.
