February NCUA Board meeting video now available online

ALEXANDRIA, VA (March 18, 2015) — The video recording of the February 2015 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 February open Board meeting’s agenda included three items:

  • A proposed rule and policy statement to provide special consideration for regulatory relief in future rulemakings to more than three-quarters of federally insured credit unions by raising the asset ceiling of a “small entity” to $100 million from the current $50 million.
  • A request from Taunton Federal Credit Union of Taunton, Massachusetts, to expand its community charter.
  • A briefing on the performance of the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, which showed positive fourth-quarter results.

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.

NCUA now offers a livestream of open Board meetings, at no charge to viewers. People interested in watching the March 19 open Board meeting live should register online here, and participants will use this same link to log into the livestream. Once they have registered, participants will be given a link they can use to test their systems.
