Nearly 20 credit union professionals earned their Credit Union Compliance Expert (CUCE) designation after completing the CUNA Regulatory Compliance School: Intro in St. Louis July 23-27. During the intense week-long school, attendees studied consumer lending regulations, NCUA requirements and guidance, mortgage lending regulations, deposit account regulations, general operations regulations and much more.
“I gained well-rounded and upper-level knowledge in all areas of compliance that were covered, both practically as well as by-the-book,” says Joanne Nelson, United Credit Union compliance manager. “Having the Credit Union Compliance Expert designation benefits our credit union by showing staff, volunteers and membership that our management is committed to promoting excellent member service through excellent education for our staff.”
To earn their Compliance Expert Certificate and CUCE designation, attendees were required to pass proctored exams for the first five Regulatory Training & Certification Program (RegTraC) modules in the six-module set. Attendees achieved a 100-percent passing rate.
“The training was detailed and timely,” says John Thomas, MCUA vice president of Compliance and Advocacy. “Credit unions face more regulatory challenges every day and more staff certified as CUCEs means their institutions will find it easier to stay in compliance. That’s the result we want to see.”
This marked the first time the CUNA Regulatory Compliance School: Intro was offered in Missouri.
"Offering a top-notch compliance school right in our own backyard provides tremendous local value to our members," says Mike Beall, MCUA president/CEO. "I’m thrilled that so many credit union professionals were able to take advantage of this nationally recognized program.Photo caption: Participants at the CUNA Regulatory Compliance School: Intro in St. Louis.
