  • Prominent Federal Regulators Headline the 21st Annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium

    Oct. 30, 2017

    Conference to address key regulatory priorities, along with technology’s growing role as disruptor and catalyst for financial services compliance

    Wolters Kluwer today announced the speaker line-up for its 21st annual CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium, to be held November 5-8, 2017, at the Omni Nashville. Featuring panel and keynote presentations from representatives of major regulatory agencies, the Colloquium this year will focus on topics ranging from heightened regulatory expectations around fair lending and the latest in exam preparation, to reverse engineering one’s compliance programs from enforcement actions and consent decrees, to leveraging the Community Reinvestment Act as a business strategy.

    In an environment of evolving regulatory oversight priorities, this year’s event will focus on ways lenders can balance innovation and growth while better operationalizing compliance practices across their organizations, including managing the heightened regulatory demands around the new Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA) rules going into effect January 1, 2018. Among featured presenters will be:

    • Dr. Eric S. Belsky, Ph.D., Director of the Division of Consumer & Community Affairs, Federal Reserve Board of Governors
    • Grovetta Gardineer, Senior Deputy Comptroller for Compliance and Community Affairs, Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
    • John Gore, Acting Assistant Attorney General, Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice
    • Mark Pearce, Director, Division of Depositor and Consumer Protection, FDIC
    • Peggy Twohig, Assistant Director for Supervision Policy, Consumer Financial Protection Bureau

    “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 the Community Reinvestment Act for their institutions,” said Timothy R. Burniston, Senior Advisor, Regulatory Strategy at Wolters Kluwer. “As the increasing scope and complexity of regulatory change continues, attendees will leave this event better informed and prepared to manage these complex issues.”

    Burniston will serve as master of ceremonies. Futurist and bestselling business author Brett King will present the keynote speech. King, who hosts the “Breaking Banks” radio program heard in 140 countries to an audience of 3.5 million listeners, has written extensively on technology and disruption in the banking and financial services industry.

    More than 70 federal regulators, attorneys, bank compliance officers and other industry experts will speak at this year’s Colloquium. 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 insights about navigating the increasingly complex regulatory and risk management challenges facing financial institutions today.

    Sponsors of the 2017 Colloquium include the American Bankers Association and Independent Community Bankers of America. For more information, please visit the CRA & Fair Lending Colloquium website.
