Alliant Credit Union Selects PolicyWorks as Compliance Partner

DES MOINES, IA (May 7, 2013) Alliant Credit Union in Chicago has contracted compliance firm PolicyWorks to act as a partner in the $8.2 billion credit union’s compliance program.

PolicyWorks will provide onsite compliance training for Alliant management and staff, as well as conduct a series of webinar-based training sessions. Review of marketing materials, documents and disclosures will also be a service provided to Alliant. In addition to reviewing these materials for federal compliance issues, the PolicyWorks team will help implement new strategies for Alliant’s overall compliance management system.

“Compliance is critically important at Alliant,” said Meredith Ritchie, VP, Associate General Counsel and Chief Ethics Officer at Alliant, “which is why we are working hard to maintain a sustainable and strategic compliance management program. The PolicyWorks team’s knowledge – not only of the regulations themselves, but of the planning, budgeting and operational implications of those regulations – makes PolicyWorks an essential partner for us. Their work for a number of other credit unions makes the scalability appealing.”

“Credit unions across the country could benefit from adopting the kind of strategic-planning mindset Alliant Credit Union has where regulations are concerned,” said Andrea Stritzke, VP, Regulatory Compliance for PolicyWorks. “Their proactive approach to compliance will help them to continue to be compliant while maintaining excellent member service.”
