Here’s one that seemed to miss most everyone’s radar. On January 18, 2017, the FDIC changed the CRA Notice requirements. Specifically, FDIC regulated banks need to change the CRA Notice in both main and branch offices to include:
1) A website informing readers about submitting comments electronically
“You may also submit comments electronically through the FDIC’s Web site at www.fdic.gov/ regulations/cra”
2) Refer to the FDIC contact as the “FDIC Director” instead of “FDIC Manager”.
If the FDIC is your primary regulator, you need to make these changes and post new notices ASAP. You can find the model wording in Appendix B to Part 345 (last page, center column).
David’s banking career began as a field examiner for the FDIC in 1990. He later became a Compliance Officer and Loan Officer for a small bank. In 1993, he established Banker’s Compliance Consulting. Along with his amazingly talented Team, he has written numerous compliance articles for prestigious banking publications and has developed compliance seminars that Banker’s Compliance Consulting produces.
He is an expert in compliance regulations. He is also a motivational speaker and innovative educator. His quick wit and sense of humor transforms the usually tiring topic of compliance into an enjoyable educational experience. David is on the faculty of the American Bankers Association National Compliance Schools and has served on the faculty of the Center for Financial Training for many years. He also is a frequent speaker at the ABA’s Regulatory Compliance Conference. He is also a trainer for hundreds of webinars, is a Certified Regulatory Compliance Manager (CRCM) and has been a BankersOnline Guru for many years. The American Bankers Association honored David with their Distinguished Service Award in 2016.
David and his wife Karen have three adult children, four grandchildren (none of whom live at home!) and two cats (of which Dave is allergic … the cats, not the children!). They recently moved to an acreage outside of Lincoln, Nebraska where he gets to play with his tractor. When possible David can be found fishing, making sawdust in his shop, or playing the guitar and piano. He also enjoys leading worship at his church.
