Not Too Late to Attend Directors College on April 11 in Northern California

April 2, 2012 - The California Department of Financial Institutions and NASCUS encourage credit union board members, supervisory committee members and other volunteers along with credit union management to attend the NASCUS Northern California Directors College.   

The event will be held April 11 in Walnut Creek, just outside San Francisco. NASCUS is pleased to announce that Teveia Barnes, the newly appointed Commissioner of the California Department of Financial Institutions, will be on hand to discuss her priorities as Commissioner. (There was also a similar event in for Southern California credit unions in San Diego on March 30 - NASCUS thanks attendees and speakers for attending the event!)

NASCUS’ Directors Colleges allow credit union directors and other volunteers, along with senior credit union staff to hear firsthand about the expectations regulators have of directors. These events also provide an opportunity for networking and sharing best practices in credit union governance with other attendees.
 
The event features sessions on the regulatory expectations of a director, critical legislative and regulatory issues and financial literacy for boards and volunteers. NASCUS has planned a special session with RaAnn Wood, Deputy Commissioner for Credit Unions with the California Department of Financial Institutions, on the DFI's changing approach to evaluating the "Management" aspect of CAMEL. In addition, renowned credit union attorney and speaker Frank Drake will share with attendees the critical elements for developing a "Foolproof Board of Directors."
