It’s that time of the year. The ABA Regulatory Compliance Conference (RCC) takes place on June 21 – 24 at the Hyatt Regency Orlando. It is live, but most sessions are recorded and will be available after the RCC concludes.

The ABA is offering an interesting line-up. There is strong emphasis on technology and its impact on compliance, CRA, and Section 1071 implementation. Following are a few topics, listed by day that caught my eye, due either to the catchy title of the session or its immediate relevance.


  • Overdrafts
  • Crypto
  • 1071 Implementation
  • ESG
  • FinTech
  • CRA Modernization
  • Flood Q&As
  • Appraisal Bias


  • What To Expect When You’re Expecting…Your Regulator
  • BNPL: Buy Now, Pay Later
  • Testing for Discrimination in Non-Credit Operations
  • Cybersecurity Risks
  • Home But Not Alone: Managing and Recruiting Tomorrow’s Workforce
  • The Perfect Storm: A Case Study in Preparing for the Dual Implementation of CRA Modernization and 1071


  • Machine Learning and AI: From Mitigating Bias to Maximizing Value
  • Transitioning to Responsible and Fair Banking – It’s Not Just Fair Lending Anymore
  • Leveraging Technology to Broaden Banking Services for the Underserved


  • Banking-as-a-Service: How to Drive Partner Growth While Avoiding Regulatory Compliance Pitfalls
  • Regulatory Hot Topics Roundtable

Speculation surrounds the potential release of the final Section 1071 rule. The author suspects the new rule will arrive before the Regulatory Hot Topics Roundtable takes place on Friday morning.

It should be an interesting week.
