Compliance Webinar for Credit Unions by Patrick Newman


Consumer Law Defense Practice Group Co-Chair Patrick Newman will be a guest presenter at "No Good Deed: Tales from the Legal Trenches About Member-Centric Practices Coming Back to Bite" with The Stark Agency on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, at 1:00 pm.

Credit Unions have a well-earned reputation for putting their members first. And this is all great 99% of the time—the member gets taken care of and the Credit Union maintains a positive, performing borrower relationship. But what about that 1% when things go sideways? And how does this change as delinquencies rise and Credit Unions feel increasing pressure to help members get back on track? Patrick Newman will join The Stark Agency Chief Operations Officer and Director of Compliance, Nate Kalnins, for a discussion about:

  • Balancing member assistance and risk mitigation
  • Consistency of Approach: Policies and Procedures for Your “Special Assets” or Collection Department
  • Secured Lending, UCC Article 9, and Perfection
  • Dot the “i's” and Cross the “t’s” for When it comes Time to Repossess the Collateral
  • Vet Your Vendors (including your outside counsel!)
  • Credit Reporting Considerations
