Description:

CRA Nuts & Bolts - Five Steps to Pass the Exam
Learn five steps to pass the exam. The first step is to develop a "context report" that tells your story to the examiners.

Our topic for the webinar will focus on several simple steps to ensure a successful CRA exam outcome. Writing a dynamic CRA context report can show examiners not only that your financial institution understands the community credit needs, but that you are effectively meeting the needs in the assessment areas you serve. We will review the steps required to establish your case and demonstrate why your CRA program qualifies for a "Satisfactory" or possibly "Outstanding" rating.

The only way you can be sure that your performance context tells the right story is to tell the story yourself.

Covered Topics:

  • Five steps for managing a CRA exam
  • The importance of developing a CRA strategy and steps for successful implementation
  • What's included in a performance context? Learn how to describe your institution, quantify the ability and capacity of the bank to meet credit needs based on financial data, and any issues that should be highlighted about a holding company, affiliate or subsidiary
  • Learn how to highlight the positive outcomes of your lending focus and business strategy
  • Tips to describe your assessment area including demographic and economic data resources
  • Best practices to deal with CRA-related complaints and potential fair lending issues that can threaten a successful exam
  • Definitions of Community Development Loans and Services
  • Ideas for passing the Investment Test portion of the exam
  • Helpful CRA compliance resources and regulatory guidance

Cannot Attend The Live Presentation?

This presentation is also available in a recorded format, in On-Demand Or CD versions, as shown in the pricing options below.

About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts: Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.

The live versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back at work immediately after the session ends!

And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous times and to share it with others in your office.

Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
