Fall Hike the Hill Goes Virtual
Once again, we have had to alter our plans for our fall Regulatory and Legislative Hike the Hill event. While we still could have traveled to Washington, DC, the pandemic situation is so fluid that we are unable to lock down face-to-face meetings with either regulators or our legislative delegation. Therefore, we have decided to switch to a virtual platform for our meetings with the NCUA and CFPB. The meetings will be held on September 14 and 15. Click here for more information, or to register now.
