Directors’ Colleges

NASCUS Directors’ Colleges are among the only venues in the credit union meeting space where credit union directors — along with senior credit union staff — can hear first-hand from state regulators and learn of their expectations of credit union directors, and the issues that directors will confront, including BSA requirements, cyber security, succession planning, interest rate risk, national issues and much more.

Examiner Schools

These multiple-day schools sponsored by NASCUS offer state examiners a complete look at the ever-changing regulatory environment, with a thorough run-down of the impact on federally insured, state-chartered credit unions from new or proposed federal regulations. In sum: these schools offer participants solid footing in today’s regulatory structure.

Industry Days

An up-close look at the state regulatory agenda and practices is offered to credit union leaders — board and executive staff — at these exclusive gatherings with state regulatory officials. Hosted by NASCUS in conjunction with local state supervisors, these intense, one-day programs bring credit union regulators and practitioners face-to-face to share experiences and ideas about developing a stronger state credit union system in their states.

Credit Union x State Regulators Exchange Meeting

The Exchange is an issues-driven annual event that brings CEOs of state and federal credit unions with assets of more than $10 billion together with regulators from states with the most progressive state credit union charters to illuminate emerging issues and trends that threaten the credit union charter’s status as the “charter of choice” whether for state or federal credit unions. NCUA and other federal regulators are invited to participate to foster state-federal regulator collaboration with industry.

The unique event supports NASCUS’ mission to support the long-term sustainability of the credit union dual charter framework. By invitation only. Please email Alicia Valencia Erb, Vice President-Member Relations, for more information.

The CURE is a new solutions-driven annual dialogue that convenes CEOs of state-chartered credit unions with assets of $5 billion – $10 billion together with state regulators from the most forward-thinking state agencies to delve into existing and emerging competitive challenges facing the state credit union system.  Federal regulators and standard-setting bodies will be invited, as appropriate, to consider problems and solutions in consultation with state regulators and credit unions.
