December NCUA Board meeting video now available online
ALEXANDRIA, VA (January 14, 2015) — The video recording of the December 2014 open meeting of the National Credit Union Administration Board is now available on the agency’s website.
Archived videos of past Board meetings may be viewed here, and each video remains on the site for one year.
The December open Board meeting’s agenda included three items:
- A Notice and Request for Comment under the Economic Growth and Regulatory Paperwork Reduction Act of 1996 to identify rules for possible modification, simplification or repeal.
- A final rule to assist underwater homeowners by allowing federally insured credit unions to refinance or modify real estate loans without obtaining an additional appraisal.
- An 8.9 percent reduction in the Temporary Corporate Credit Union Stabilization Fund oversight budget for 2015.
NCUA posts these videos as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to provide transparency and to allow those unable to attend Board meetings the opportunity to become better informed. An interval between the meeting and posting is necessary for the videos to comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act for the hearing and visually impaired.
The Board Actions page of NCUA’s website has more information, including Board agendas, which are posted one week in advance of each open meeting, copies of Board Action Bulletins, which summarize the meetings, copies of Board memorandums and other documents.
