Meet with Treliant at ABA RCC 2018

Treliant is a proud Sponsor of the American Bankers Association (ABA) Regulatory Compliance Conference 2018. Members of our team look forward to connecting with you at the conference to discuss the regulatory changes and challenges impacting the financial services industry.

Susanna K. Tisa, Chief Executive Officer, Carl G. Pry, Managing Director, Kathlyn (Lyn) L. Farrell, Senior Advisory Board Member, and Lynn Woosley, Engagement Director, are participating in a Power Hour Breakfast Session on "Seven Steps to Avoid Redlining Violations" on Monday, June 25th from 7:30 AM - 8:30 AM. Institutions need to be prepared for new forms of redlining. In all its shapes and forms, redlining continues to be a hot topic with regulators – all regulators, not just the CFPB.  From determining a bank’s Reasonably Expected Market Area (REMA) to deciding where to aim marketing efforts, redlining must be top of mind. During this session, Treliant’s experts will provide seven steps a bank should follow in order to avoid redlining issues and ensure your fair and responsible banking program is up to date. 
  • REMA – sometimes called a Service Area, Lending Area, or Marketing Area. What should your REMA look like? What factors go into establishing your REMA?
  • Digital Redlining – as banking has progressed into the 21st century, so have redlining concepts for fair lending. We will discuss how to evaluate your “digital footprint” and how to avoid allegations that you’re avoiding discriminating against customers in the digital age.
  • Redlining Analytics – we’ve come a long way from sticking pushpins into a map on the wall to determine if we have a problem. Redlining now involves a comparison against your peers and competitors. We will discuss what data you should analyze and how to compare it against your peers. 

    Kathlyn (Lyn) L. Farrell, Senior Advisory Board Member, will moderate the following panel sessions:

  •  "Conduct Risk: It's Not Just About Your Sales Practices" on Sunday, June 24th from 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM and 1:30 PM - 3:00 PM. Conduct risk grabbed headlines with sales practices but it is much more than this. In this deep dive panelists discuss the elements of conduct risk, how conduct risk management frameworks are constructed, the various roles and responsibilities within the bank and leading practices on controlling conduct risk.
  • "It's Not About "U" – It's Me: Leading Practices for UDAAP Controls for the First Line" on Monday, June 25th from 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM and on Tuesday, June 26th from 10:45 AM - 12:00 PM. Effective UDAAP risk management requires heavy lifting from the business lines. First line of defense experts will discuss the leading practices for UDAAP controls. They will provide examples of effective controls for UDAAP including risk assessments, marketing controls, vendor monitoring and monitoring practices that have a high UDAAP risk.

  • Mark Westmoreland, Principal, to host a live podcast session: 
  • "Conduct Risk and Complaints" on Monday, June 25th at 2:35 PM during the Dessert Break in the Marketplace. 

    Carl G. Pry, Managing Director, to participate on the panel session: 
  • "Commercial Lending Hot Topics" on Monday, June 25th from 3:00 PM - 4:15 PM and on Tuesday, June 26th from 1:30 PM - 2:45 PM. In this session, panelists discuss the pain points in commercial lending compliance and how to strengthen your Compliance Management System (CMS). The session will conclude with some "leading practices" that you attendees can take home and use! 

    April A. Breslaw, Senior Advisor, to participate on the panel session:
  • "Transitioning to the Bureau (BCFP - formerly CFPB)" on Tuesday, June 26th from 1:30 PM - 2:45 PM. In this session, experts will walk through assessing the bank's CMS culture and readiness in making an effective supervision transition. Compliance officers will share direct experiences they have had preparing for their first Bureau exam, including how to plan and demonstrate a CMS Program.

    Tina M. Shaver, Senior Director, will moderate the panel session:
  • "Expanding Your Reach: Working with a Diverse Community" on Tuesday, June 26th from 1:30 PM - 2:45 PM. In this session, attendees will learn leading practices in analyzing product mix for fair banking concerns, trends in serving customers with limited English proficiency, UDAAP red flags, and monitoring staff diversity. Attendees will walk away with new ideas in not only improving your compliance program but new ideas in improving service to a wide range of customers in their markets.
