Matz plans new series of “Listening Sessions” on wide range of topics

ALEXANDRIA, VA (February 20, 2014) – National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) Board Chairman Debbie Matz today announced plans to host three “Listening Sessions” across America in June and July.

Similar to Chairman Matz’s Listening Sessions in 2012, the 2014 sessions will be open to any topics related to NCUA.

“This new series of Listening Sessions will be an opportunity for NCUA Board members and senior staff to hear directly from credit union officials about how we can further improve regulations, the exam process, and any other NCUA initiatives,” Matz said. “My previous Listening Sessions led to regulatory relief and streamlined examination reports. We are looking forward to another productive series of face-to-face meetings with credit union officials and stakeholders.”

Chairman Matz is planning Listening Sessions for the following dates, times, and locations:

Listening Session Date​ Time ​Location NCUA Regional​ Co-Hosts
June 26 ​​9:00-Noon PDT ​San Francisco ​5
​July 10 ​9:00-Noon CDT ​Chicago ​3 & 4
July 17 ​​9:00-Noon EDT
​Washington D.C.
Metropolitan Area
​1 & 2


Registration for all Listening Sessions will be free online. Participation will open to the first 150 people who register. Participants will have opportunities to dialog with NCUA Board members, senior NCUA staff, and supervisory examiners from the NCUA Region(s) co-hosting each Listening Session. These sessions will take place before NCUA’s proposed rule on risk-based capital is finalized.

NCUA is the independent federal agency created by the U.S. Congress to regulate, charter and supervise federal credit unions. With the backing of the full faith and credit of the U.S. Government, NCUA operates and manages the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund, insuring the deposits of nearly 96 million account holders in all federal credit unions and the overwhelming majority of state-chartered credit unions.
