Introducing CCUL: Compliance experts offer guidance, solutions to Carolinas CUs
Thursday, February 20, 2014
VP Regulatory/Compliance Counsel
So far, January 2014 has reminded us that the best way to weather any storm is to be prepared. In an increasingly burdensome regulatory environment, the Carolinas Credit Union League’s compliance team is poised to help member credit unions with their challenges, whether immediate or long-term.
At the ready are two experienced professionals: CCUL VP Regulatory/Compliance Counsel Jeanne Couchois and CCUL Compliance Analyst Reggie Mathis.
Jeanne is a North Carolina-licensed attorney with more than twenty years in the credit union industry. Prior to joining the CCUL, she worked in various roles for State Employees’ Credit Union, most recently as vice president of compliance and BSA officer. Jeanne is a graduate of the Campbell University School of Law and brings with her a passion for helping credit unions interpret and overcome complex regulatory issues.
Also a NC-licensed attorney, Reggie brings to CCUL an extensive history of working with non-profits. He has served as associate minister at Praise Assembly Christian Center in Winston-Salem for six years, and has worked with non-profit agencies such as the United Way of Forsyth County and Big Brothers/Big Sisters of the Triangle. Reggie is a graduate of Wake Forest University, Wake Forest University School of Divinity, and the North Carolina Central University School of Law.
Together, this team works hard to keep credit unions abreast of new regulations with a monthly newsletter, regulatory alerts, quarterly calls, videos to answer common, pressing questions, and various training and resources. They’re also supported by League InfoSight and available to answer any questions by phone or email. Additional fee-based services available from the team include BSA training, SAFE Act implementation, policy reviews, and customized training or policy needs.
Don’t let changes in the regulatory environment catch you off guard. Get the information and assistance you need by reaching out to CCUL’s compliance team at firstname.lastname@example.org or 800-822-8859, ext. 2.
