ERM Compliance for the Boardroom:
How to Report in a Way They’ll Understand
Many risk professionals can find it challenging to report the results of their enterprise risk management program to the board. In this session, learn how to speak to the different personality types around that ERM table in ways that bolster confidence in risk management leadership and program results.

The Emerging Landscape of CRA Reform
It’s been 42 years since the enactment of the Community Reinvestment Act and over 20 years since the last significant amendments which stressed performance over process. Real reform of the CRA is long overdue. The OCC is leading the charge with its proposed rule, but what about the Fed and FDIC? Join a seasoned CRA expert in a consideration of what the future of CRA will most likely look like under a revised regulatory framework with more CRA-qualifying activities, streamlined recordkeeping and reporting, a revamped exam process, and sensible incentives for performance. With the digital transformation of banking, CRA’s emphasis on assessment areas tied to branches and ATMs is obsolete, plus there’s increased competition from nonbank lenders. Consider an ideal framework for CRA reform that eases compliance, incentivizes banks, and better serves low- and moderate-income (LMI) communities.
Avoiding Surprises in Mortgage Servicing
The regulatory environment has continued to impose many challenges on loan servicers. Managing and implementing Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rules has been at the forefront of these challenges. A major focus has been on the impact of servicing transfers which has been impacted by out-of-date servicing technology in place at many servicers. While the business reasons for transferring servicing are justified, the responsibility for compliance with servicing rules cannot be delegated if servicing activities are out-sourced to a third party. In addition to implementing the rules, regulatory and investor quality control requirements mandate the ongoing monitoring of servicing activities. Preventing surprises that can result in significant operational, regulatory, reputational, and financial burdens if not detected on a timely basis is just as critical.
