I spent the past two days as part of the panel at the BankersonLine.com annual Lending Compliance Triage Conference in Louisville. We had two long days of presentations and discussions. We had about 50 banks with us at the meeting site, but we had about 200 banks (probably around 1,000 bankers) participating remotely.
We worked hard during the day and had two enjoyable evenings together. On Monday night, Patti and I had a backyard cookout for the BOL staff, the other presenters, and the BOL Queens. We had a perfect fall evening for outdoor entertaining next to the lake. On Tuesday evening we gathered at Michele Petry’s (one of the BOL founders) house for dinner, music and signing.
We covered over 30 topics during the two days, but the top two topics were Fair Lending and UDAAP. Both issues have been on the rise over the last few years and are getting a lot of attention from examiners. The Dodd-Frank Act is expanding the regulatory burden for each of these topics. You will hear much more about each in the years to come.
