Compliance with the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) has always been a top priority to CRA officers, senior management, and the board. Having a solid “satisfactory” or even an “outstanding” CRA rating is imperative for your bank. Although CRA regulatory requirements have not changed lately, examiners’ expectations seem to be somewhat of a moving target. CRA exams are tough! Whether you are a small, intermediate-small, or large bank, this session will cover the CRA examination handbook regulators use. We will first review the areas that are important to all banks and then discuss those areas pertinent just to intermediate and large banks. Even if you’re a small bank today, you might not be tomorrow, so it’s good to know what is expected at the next level.

Tools will be provided to help review your CRA program before examiners arrive. The results of your self-assessment should be reported to the board, so there won’t be any surprises. If weaknesses are identified, this webinar will teach you how to implement corrective actions to strengthen your CRA efforts.
