As we announced previously in the Memo, our annual fall Regulatory and Legislative Hike the Hill event has once again had to pivot in response to the direction the pandemic is trending. We have made the difficult decision to cancel the September 14 and 15 in-person event and switch to a virtual platform for our meetings with the NCUA and CFPB.
With new mask restrictions in Washington, DC, and the uncertainty of what to expect in the coming months, we want to ensure we are being good stewards of our resources, and also respective of our attendees’ time and resources. However, the silver lining to this is that if you were unable to attend the in-person event you can now attend these regulatory meetings virtually, hear from our regulators, and submit topics and questions you would like addressed. This is a great opportunity to let the NCUA and CFPB know about any concerns or questions you may have – especially as we have new leadership at both agencies.
The following meetings have been confirmed with the NCUA and CFPB for our virtual Regulatory Hike the Hill meetings.
9:15 a.m. (CT) NCUA Chairman Todd M. Harper
12:00 p.m. (CT) Representatives from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
2:00 p.m. (CT) NCUA Vice Chairman Kyle S. Hauptman
9:00 a.m. (CT) NCUA Board Member Rodney E. Hood
Attendance is free. However, we do ask that you register no later than noon on September 7th so we can provide the regulatory agencies with a list of attendees in advance of these meetings.
Please note: Be sure to include any questions or issues you would like to discuss with the agencies. A space is provided in the registration form for you to provide this information or you may email Amy Kleinschmit directly.
We hope you will join us for this very important virtual event. It is crucial that Dakota credit unions continue to voice their concerns and issues to our regulators. Bringing the stories of how the decisions made in Washington DC impact your members is needed for a strong advocacy front.
