A strong CRA rating is important to your bank.

A poor rating can significantly impede the board and management’s strategic goals and adversely affect your reputation. The CRA changes that have been proposed will be reviewed and contrasted against current expectations so you can adequately prepare.
  • Understand current regulatory requirements and how proposed changes may impact your CRA program
  • Identify technical requirements for banks of all sizes
  • Develop effective CRA compliance strategies
  • Conduct a thorough CRA self-assessment
  • Communicate your CRA efforts to the board


The Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) was enacted to encourage banks to “meet the credit needs of their local communities, including low- and moderate-income (LMI) neighborhoods, in a safe and sound manner.” Throughout the last three years, the regulatory agencies have worked on revising the CRA to strengthen its original intent while modernizing it to reflect current banking practices. Last year the Agencies issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM). While the regulators review the numerous comments from bankers and industry leaders before issuing a final ruling, banks are expected to continue to meet the current rule’s requirements.

This session will dive into the rule and provide best practices to prepare your CRA program to meet regulatory expectations. Whether you are a small, intermediate-small, or large bank, you’ll learn the current guidelines that apply to you and what is proposed for the future. Join us for this jam-packed session!


This informative session is designed for CRA officers, compliance officers, lending officers, and internal auditors.
