As the banking industry continues to recover from the Great Recession, regulators are more active than ever. The rate of bank failures has declined, but new regulations and regulatory guidance – particularly in the consumer arena – are flooding the industry. In such an environment, it is critical that community bank boards of directors understand how to appropriately deal with their primary regulator. This program will address current regulatory trends to monitor and pitfalls to avoid in order to stay in the regulators’ good graces. It will also provide insight about the appropriate way to communicate with regulators before significant bank activities, the proper posture to take when the bank and its regulator do not see eye-to-eye, and how to deal with the regulators when the bank is under an enforcement action.
