Over the last year, we’ve seen significant developments in the community-banking industry’s challenges to credit unions’ lending practices. Two cases in particular have taken center stage: Independent Community Bankers of America (ICBA) v. NCUA and American Bankers Association (“ABA”) v. NCUA.

The ICBA case, which focused on participation interests in loans to nonmembers, resulted in a significant victory for credit unions.
The ABA case, which focuses on field-of-membership expansion, remains pending.  We will discuss the implications of this litigation for the credit-union industry, including, among other things:

    • What regulators need to know about the litigation.
    • How the litigation could affect lending practices.
    • What measures regulators can take to address changes stemming from the litigation.

11:30 a.m.: Summit adjourns
