California Mortgage Foreclosure Reform – “Homeowner Bill of Rights” – Web Seminar

This webinar covers what you need to know about the elements of the newly enacted California Attorney General’s “Homeowner Bill of Rights.” Much of this webinar is dedicated to the work product of a state legislative conference committee convened to specifically focus on prohibiting dual-tracking, requiring single points of contact as a means to improve borrower communication, increasing standards on loan documentation and imposing legal liability through private rights of action. Also featured is a discussion about the non-controversial measures contained with the Homeowner Bill of Rights pertaining to blight deterrence and the rights of tenants who rent or lease foreclosed properties.

Please join us on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at 11:30 a.m. (PDT) to hear the latest on this legislation from:

  • Neil Rubenstein, shareholder, BuchalterNemer, a Professional Corporation

2012 CBA Regulatory Compliance School

The second year of Dodd-Frank brings an increased focus by federal regulators on protecting consumers from alleged bank excesses, and more emphasis on the compliance management and oversight responsibilities of senior management and directors. Bank compliance today requires the type of information and support that begins with the CBA’s Regulatory Compliance school; it encompasses a network of peers you will get to know at the School and provides the awareness bankers need when managing a cost effective compliance system.

Today, banks are under greater compliance scrutiny than they have seen in decades. There will be substantial changes coming to HMDA, TILA and RESPA on the loan side and to Regulations CC and DD on the deposit side, plus the plethora of new rules that will be promulgated and revised by the new CFPB. You’ll also be subject to a steadily increasing ramp-up of Fair Lending issues (and penalties). The future promises more regulatory responsibilities for banks and CBA’s Regulatory Compliance School, reflects the current and latest regulatory changes. The school will give you the tools and resources you need to successfully navigate the world of compliance.

This five-day program will help you develop an essential technical understanding of major compliance issues, and lay the groundwork for developing and maintaining an effective compliance program. CBA’s Regulatory Compliance School is designed around three core modules:

  • Lending compliance (Regs Z and B, fair housing, RESPA, FCRA, HMDA, flood insurance
  • Deposit/operations compliance (BSA/USA Patriot Act, OFAC, Regs D/Q, DD, E and CC, privacy and e-compliance)
  • Compliance management (Developing and managing a compliance program and integration techniques for compliance programs)

Join us for this robust program and earn more than 40 credits toward your CRCM certification. Compliance officers, lending personnel, deposit/operations, auditors and attorneys should attend. The compliance school will be held August 13 – 17, 2012 at The Westin Pasadena.

For more information or to register, please visit CBA’s website or contact Laurie Eaton at 916/438-4433 or leaton@calbankers.com.
