SAFE Act Strategies
2:30 p.m. Eastern

Just when you thought you understood the risks and requirements associated with a modern real estate lending program, we have another sweeping regulatory mandate designed to address problems in the mortgage marketplace. The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008 (SAFE Act) constituted a major new housing law that will impact both federal and state chartered credit unions as well as CUSOs that originate real estate loans.

The SAFE Act is designed to enhance consumer protection and reduce fraud by requiring states to establish minimum standards for the licensing and registration of mortgage loan originators. The law makes additional provisions governing background checks, initial training for loan originators, and maintenance of a publicly-accessible database of employment and disciplinary history on loan originators.

Join David Reed, Reed & Jolly PLLC as he breaks down the SAFE Act requirements and provides insight for effective examination strategies. This webinar is open to credit unions and examiners. The fee for the webinar is $149 for members.  To register click here.

Credit Card Act Update
1:00 p.m. Eastern

Credit cards didn't cause the mortgage melt-down in 2008 but the new rules adopted in 2009 and 2010 responded aggressively to consumer concerns about the marketing and operation of many credit card products. It's time to make sure you cross the t's and dot the i's. in this area of compliance.

This webinar will cover when and how you can change the interest rate on your card, the way you must disclose significant changes, the opt-in and opt-out rights of consumers, timing requirements for your periodic statements and the difference between a business and consumer credit card.
