Exclusively for CBW Bank Members... and it's FREE!
In these times of regulatory change and uncertainty, the need for timely and consistent resources is critical for all community banks. That is why Community Bankers of Washington (CBW) is joining with our counterparts in Texas, the Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT), to launch Compliance Adviser, an exclusive compliance resource for CBW Bank Members and community bankers throughout the country. This is so important that we are including it at no charge as a benefit of your bank’s membership in CBW.
Launching April 1, 2017, the most important feature of Compliance Adviser is that it allows personnel from CBW member banks, at no cost, to call or email questions related to federal rules and regulations to community bank compliance professionals. The service prides itself on quick feedback that’s easy to read and is supported by necessary citations and agency references.
Emails can be submitted anytime and calls are usually answered between 8 a.m. and 6 p.m. CST on banking days. Response times vary based upon the complexity of the question, but the vast majority are answered same day.
In addition, the program includes unlimited online access to: · “Featured Resources” that include guidelines and overviews aimed at specific regulatory requirements in an easy to understand format that are great for training and reference. · A searchable Legal Ease archive containing hundreds of questions and answers. Legal Ease is based upon actual questions submitted and new ones are added weekly. · A moderated Forum for sharing questions and obtaining feedback from your industry peers. · Selected resources from the regulators.
