I hope credit union professionals and volunteers will join us to hear the latest on developments within the industry and at NCUA, and to ask questions,” Matz said. “Everyone is welcome. These town hall webinars are one way we fulfill our commitment to informing the public about NCUA’s activities and providing a forum for discussion of important industry issues. There will be a lot to discuss, and I’m looking forward to a lively, interesting dialogue.”

- Credit union industry performance;
- NCUA’s Regulatory Modernization Initiative and efforts to provide regulatory relief;
- NCUA’s proposed rule on derivatives;
