Starting with our "Welcome aBoard" post, our weekly blog addresses issues and topics of interest for Montana credit union board members. 

Staying on Top of Recordkeeping Deficiencies

From the NCUA Report april 2015

In recent years, NCUA has noted a strong correlation between fraud, losses related to fraud, and weak internal controls. They put together a great list of common general ledger areas to keep up on that credit union boards of directors and supervisory committees can use as a resource. Safety and soundness are a goal of management, officials, and regulators. As noted in the article, "serious and persistent recordkeeping deficiencies are often red flags for greater problems, including employee dishonesty and fraud."

Below, you'll find links to past blog posts organized (loosely) into four categories. They are 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.
