Wolters Kluwer’s Compliance Solutions business will host its 24th annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium as a first-ever virtual event this year during three, half-day sessions beginning Thursday, October 15 and continuing on Wednesday, November 18 and Monday, December 7. This year’s Colloquium is offered as a complimentary event and features some of the top U.S. regulators and other leading regulatory compliance experts focusing on fair lending and Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) compliance issues—as well as other related and trending regulatory developments—in a series of panel discussions and presentations.
Joining as featured speakers presenting insights and updates at this year’s Colloquium are Eric Belsky, the Federal Reserve Board; Luke Brown, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation; Patrice Ficklin, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau; and Grovetta Gardineer, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency. Along with these presenters, a number of federal regulators, attorneys, bank CRA and fair lending compliance officers, community and civil rights group leaders, and other industry experts will speak at this year’s Colloquium. Each of the three Colloquium sessions will run from noon to 5 p.m. ET.
“The Colloquium provides an invaluable forum for bankers to hear directly from regulators and industry leaders about the most pressing implications around regulatory compliance issues in fair lending and CRA for their institutions,” said Timothy R. Burniston, Senior Advisor, Regulatory Strategy at Wolters Kluwer. “As the increasing scope and complexity of regulatory change continues, including significant changes for the CRA regulations and examination framework, attendees will leave this event better informed and prepared to manage these complex issues.”
Since its inception in 1996, the Colloquium has grown to become a prominent forum for bank and credit union compliance officers, state and federal banking regulators, risk managers, consultants, vendors and other industry players seeking deep insights on fair lending and CRA issues as they navigate increasingly complex regulatory and risk management challenges facing financial institutions today.
“The Colloquium brings together a tremendous range of expertise and depth on a variety of regulatory compliance issues facing U.S. banks and credit unions,” noted Steve Meirink, Executive Vice President and General Manager, Compliance Solutions. “Given the challenges COVID-19 presents for in-person gatherings, we have made the investment to offer a virtual experience and eliminated registration charges for this year’s event, enabling new members of our community to participate in this critical industry forum. We are tremendously honored to have these top regulatory compliance experts contribute their insights and experiences at the Colloquium and look forward to the lively discussions that their presentations will surely generate.”
Sponsors of the 2020 Colloquium include the American Bankers Association and Independent Community Bankers of America. For more information, please visit Wolters Kluwer’s CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium website.
