January NCUA board meeting video now available online
ALEXANDRIA, VA (February 11, 2015) — The video recording of the January 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 January open Board meeting’s agenda included four items:
- A revised proposed rule to better protect the credit union system and the Share Insurance Fund by strengthening and modernizing the agency’s existing risk-based capital requirements for complex federally insured credit unions.
- The 2015–2016 Annual Performance Plan to establish the agency’s goals and priorities in the coming year.
- An amendment to agency regulations governing credit union capital planning and stress testing to ensure consistency with the stress tests of federal banking agencies.
- A request from 360 Federal Credit Union of Windsor Locks, Connecticut, to convert to a community charter.
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 will begin livestreaming open Board meetings beginning Feb. 19. People interested in watching that open Board meeting must register online here. Live captioning will be provided for the hearing-impaired. Participants will receive a confirmation email containing a link they can use to log into the livestream and are encouraged to test the link prior to the meeting to determine their computers’ ability to stream the event. Participants with technical questions may consult the online Quick Start Guide or email firstname.lastname@example.org. NCUA will provide a new registration link for each subsequent Board meeting.
