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.
Compliance Officers, CRA Officers, and Senior Management will find this session very beneficial.
