Regulatory reform is like the weather: everyone talks about it, but no one really does anything about it. So, even as you rail against the CFPB remember that, unless you think Tinker Bell is going to be elected President, this new hyper-regulatory environment is here to stay. Those credit unions that most successfully integrate compliance into their business structure as opposed to treating it as a costly appendage will be the ones for whom compliance might actually be a source of savings. After all, members are more likely to trust an institution that knows what they are doing and why they are doing it.To be sure, larger credit unions a have a huge advantage when it comes to absorbing compliance costs. I feel your pain, but let’s get over it. There are cost effective steps that even the smallest credit unions can take to improve their compliance with all those nettlesome laws and regulations with minimal impact on their bottom line. I’ve chosen some examples that all credit unions should implement to cost effectively improve their compliance programs.Customize Your Procedures. Just about every aspect of an institution’s consumer banking practices – whether that institution is JP Morgan Chase or a five person CU – can be reduced to procedures that can be applied over and over and over again. For example, as challenging as the new integrated disclosure requirements are, once you figure out how to comply, a well written step-by-step procedure can enable any employee you hire now or in the future to implement TRID in a way that makes the most sense for your credit union. In addition, as regulations change, you can simply tweak the procedures. Procedures codify institutional memory so that not everyone has to be a compliance expert. The only cost is the time and effort it takes to write down the procedures. Considering how much time your credit union has spent complying with the TRID mandate, this is an investment that makes sense.Prioritize Vendor Management. CU CEOs are unabashedly frugal and they should be. A penny saved truly is a penny earned. One of the best ways to save money while improving your compliance is to take vendor management more seriously.(A) Mandate that employees get quotes from multiple vendors regardless of the services for which they are shopping. Credit unions always say they don’t have leverage when negotiating contracts. This will always be true for those institutions that don’t start negotiating contract terms until after they have chosen a vendor.(B) Make employees responsible for periodically checking in on each vendor with whom you contract. With so many regulations being implemented by vendors you must oversee vendor performance if you are going to oversee your CU’s compliance efforts. Many vendors are computer people who specialize in compliance software not compliance people who know software. Someone in your credit union needs to know a regulation well enough that you can double check your vendors.(C) Make sure you know when contracts end. Many contracts have automatic renewal provisions and if your credit union gets sloppy, you will miss a golden opportunity to review the price and performance of your vendors.Pool compliance services. Every credit union, no matter how small, needs a dedicated compliance professional but not everyone can afford one: I get it. The solution is for credit unions to pool resources. For example, New York has joined a growing number of leagues that hire a field level compliance specialist who works with a group of credit unions to provide ongoing compliance on issues unique to those credit unions. They could even draft a couple of those procedures I was talking about.Don’t Do a Volkswagen – Make compliance everyone’s responsibility. The Executive team comes up with a great idea for a new financial product. The Marketing department comes up with a great campaign and the compliance officer is asked to review it for “compliance issues” the day before it is scheduled to be launched. I exaggerate only slightly. Financial institutions of all shapes and sizes have for too long let a culture fester in which compliance is viewed as an enemy to be conquered rather than a partner with whom to work to achieve greater efficacy. It’s time for a reality check: Any person responsible for any part of your credit union’s operations that is impacted by compliance. Given this reality, every single employee and department should have to work with, and not against their compliance person. For example, compliance should have a role in the development of every credit union project and initiative at the earliest stages of the process. Common sense tells you that a system that integrates compliance into a product’s design is more efficient than one that ignores it until the very end of the process. Just ask our good friends at Volkswagen.Love ‘em or hate ‘em you still need a lawyer. . . Sometimes. A good compliance program not only has to be well conceived and consistently implemented but it needs to know where the gray areas are and how to exploit them for the good of the credit union. This is where a lawyer, albeit a lawyer who knows something about consumer banking, comes in. Not every threatened lawsuit should be settled and the plain language of statutes and regulations should be the beginning, not the end, of legal analysis when it comes to the most important legal and compliance issues facing your credit union. Consequently, there are times when the extra cost of an attorney is worth it. My rule of thumb is that the more you are dealing with an issue for which there is not a settled Yes or No answer, or that could expose your credit union to litigation, the more you should consider calling your counsel.Each one of these steps will not only improve your compliance, but will save your credit union money. My point is this; compliance doesn’t have to cost your credit union as much money as you think it does. A well thought out system of checks and balances will lead to better functioning institutions that better present themselves to the public and comply with regulatory demands in the most cost effective manner. 31SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Henry Meier As General Counsel for the New York Credit Union Association, Henry is actively involved in all legislative, regulatory and legal issues impacting New York credit unions.

COLTS NECK – As a part of their senior project, six Law & Public Service Learning Center students decided to host a Young Voter Registration Breakfast for their peers on May 24.The group invited Monmouth County Freeholder Serena DiMaso and County Clerk Christine Giordano Hanlon to speak to seniors in the Law & Public Service Learning Center during the breakfast. DiMaso spoke about the county government and the roles of a freeholder. Hanlon explained the voter registration process to the group.Many of the seniors who are already 18 said they had not registered yet and were eager to fill out the registration form. Hanlon also told the students about a new law which allows them to complete the registration process at the age of 17. If a person were to turn 18 a few days before an election, they previously would not be registered in time to vote in that election. Under the new law, if the registration is completed at age 17, the individual would be registered and eligible to vote as soon as they turn 18.The Colts Neck High School seniors who organized the breakfast were Geoff Bartner, Dominic Conoshenti, Devin Clementi, Emma Tucker, Josh Korn and Chris Meehan.The Law and Public Service Learning Center at Colts Neck High School is a rigorous program geared toward highly motivated students with demonstrated interests and abilities in history, politics, government, law, volunteerism and leadership. The program started in 2003 and currently has 122 students enrolled. In order to be accepted into the program, applicants must take an entrance exam and complete an essay, as well as having exemplary grades. Peter Krais, supervisor of the Social Studies, Law & Public Service Learning Center, estimates that roughly one- third to one-half of their students go into some sort of pre-law/public policy/political science type of college major.
By law, the Census Bureau must deliver each state’s population total to the president, which determines the number of seats a state receives in the U.S. House of Representatives. Originally planned for Dec. 31, the revised delivery date to the president is April 30, 2021. By Allison Perrine He and other elected officials in the Two River area are now urging residents not to make the same mistake in 2020. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, as of May 9, 60.2 percent of New Jersey residents have self-responded to the survey online, by phone or by mail. In Monmouth County specifically, 63.9 percent of its residents have self-responded. In 2010, when the census was last conducted, a total of 70.1 Monmouth County residents self-responded. Perry said education funding from the state has been cut by more than $2 million over the years. If people fill out the census completely and accurately, the township hopefully won’t have additional cuts over the next decade,he said. The census is more than just a headcount. Mandated in the Constitution, it helps determine congressional representation, federal funding and much more. It is conducted every 10 years and allows state officials to redistrict congressional and state legislative districts to account for population changes. The goal is to have a complete and accurate count of U.S. residents in all 50 states and its five territories. He added that now could be easier than ever to fill it out, as most people are now working remotely from home in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic and have more time on their hands. “Our lives and our representation are going to be dictated by this estimate that is done for the next decade,” he said. This year the COVID-19 pandemic has hindered the U.S. Census Bureau’s ability to get more residents to respond the survey. During previous surveys, census takers would go door-to-door to seek responses from those who hadn’t already self-responded. That can’t happen in New Jersey because of the governor’s executive order to stay at home. However, surveys can still be completed online, over the phone or by mail, without having to physically meet with a census taker and the self-response deadline has been extended from July 31 to Oct. 31. Several other extensions for Alaska, island areas, Puerto Rico and more are available on the U.S. Census 2020 website at 2020census.gov. Minority communities are traditionally underrepresented on the census, so before the COVID-19 pandemic struck, tutors from Literacy NJ Monmouth were teaching in-person lessons to English as a Second Language (ESL) students on the importance of the census. The tutors also reviewed the questions on the survey with students to be sure they understood the vocabulary. In Middletown Township, Mayor Tony Perry explained how the benefits far outweigh the time spent filling out the census form. “It’s about all these little things that are little – in terms of the time it takes you to fill it out and the impact that it has on you,” he said. “The time is so minuscule. “We need to get this number up – get it up meaningfully and get it up fast,” Murphy said. “Ensuring every New Jerseyan is properly and accurately counted in the 2020 census is incredibly important,” he added. “So much rides on an accurate and full count.” The data on census response rates is available for some Two River area municipalities. As of May 9, that includes Atlantic Highlands with a 69.4 percent response; Fair Haven at 75.1 percent; Highlands, 50.2 percent; Little Silver, 77.0 percent; Monmouth Beach, 51.7 percent; Oceanport, 68.5 percent; Red Bank, 57.3 percent; Rumson, 67.9 percent; Sea Bright, 38.0 percent; and Tinton Falls, 67.4 percent. “With everything that is going on in our world today, I highly encourage our residents to complete the census as soon as they can so that we all can plan appropriately for the next decade,” said Hemphill. Ten years ago, when the U.S. Census was last conducted, New Jersey residents were underrepresented. Because of that, the state left “billions of dollars in federal aid on the table,” said Gov. Phil Murphy in a press conference May 6. “A majority of the students we called have either already filled it out online or will do so shortly,” said Even. So far, they have had a 41 percent participation rate of students engaging in the remote learning to take the census, which Even said is “great” considering it was put in place so quickly. “It is very important,” said Rumson Mayor Joseph K. Hemphill of the census. “Outside of the effects it has on the U.S. House of Representatives and district boundaries on the local, state and national levels, the results directly impact the federal funding for our communities over the next 10 years. Not to mention, the preparation for emergency responses, disease outbreaks, and even the day-to-day functional planning of our town stem from these results. That has changed, said Jhanna Even, program director with Literacy NJ Monmouth. Since March 15 when formal tutoring sessions shut down, the group switched to remote online learning. Some tutors are still teaching lessons through the Zoom application and FaceTime. They continue to call students, encourage them to fill out the census and ask that they have five friends and family do the same. Mandated in the Constitution, the census is more than just a headcount; it helps determine congressional representation, federal funding and much more. As of May 9, just under 64 percent of Monmouth County residents had responded to the 2020 survey. Because of COVID-19, the deadline to complete it has been extended to Oct. 31 Courtesy U.S. Census Bureau The article originally appeared in the May 14 – 20, 2020 print edition of The Two River Times. “Everybody wants great roads. Everybody wants to have their voices heard, whether it’s in Washington or in Trenton. It’s about special education. It’s about education funding” and senior citizen benefits, he said.

Web developers using OS X, take note: If you want to create a fully contained server stack in which to build and test your latest ideas on Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, you’re just one click away from creating such an environment. Four Different ChoicesWithin the App Store for OS X can now be found four such stacks, courtesy of BitRock’s Bitnami, a free software service that enables you to install various software stacks either natively on Windows, OS X or Linux; as a virtual machine in VMware or as an Amazon Cloud instance.Full disclosure: I’ve been a Bitnami fan for a long time. The stacks it offers, which include Alfresco, ownCloud and SugarCRM, are very easy to install and are perfect for fast setup when I want to review software or slap a together a website.The stacks offered in the App Store include Joomla, WordPress, Drupal and a generic MAMP stack (Mac, Apache, MySQL, PHP) – all popular website platforms that are installed natively on your Mac machine.Bitnami stacks installed natively are not installed as they would be if you built the software in the stacks by scratch. Instead of code getting installed all over the place, the binaries for the stack are all placed inside one directory, completely self-contained.A Different Kind Of Walled GardenThe Bitnami stack from the App Store, it seems, are walled off even more, according to reports from users. The App Store’s sandboxing apparently makes configuring the software a little harder than it normally would be, so if you’re going to do extensive development with these stacks, users are recommending you visit Bitnami and get the native installation packages from the company directly.This is not to decry the App Store’s Bitnami stacks. I pulled down the Joomla stack, installed and configured it, and was ready to work with it in minutes. I can play around with themes and extensions in Joomla to my heart’s content. Best of all, there was little to no resource dragging on my system, which I sometimes experience when I run one of these stacks as a virtual machine in VMware or Parallels.Serious developers may indeed want to pull down the images straight from Bitnami, or better yet, install one of these stacks as a full-on Amazon Machine Instance on the EC2 platform and create an eventual production version of the stack you’re creating.It’s too easy not to.Lead image courtesy of Shutterstock.

Sidi Ifni, Morocco- During “Lie Detector”, a Ukrainian television program aired in early November, an Israeli soldier, admitted that she shot some unknown Palestinians, including children, according to Maan News. Zakusilo, a Ukrainian Jewish woman who served in the Israeli army, has revealed that she had killed some Palestinians without being sure of the exact number.She also admitted training army dogs to attack Palestinian villages, in addition to conducting video surveillance in the occupied Palestinian territories. Palestinian mothers, Zakusilo underscored, are to blame for sending their children to be “suicide bombers”.“I am not proud of these acts, though“ Zakusilo said.When asked if she was “willing to go back to Israel and continue killing enemies”, she said “Yes”.But she said that she was afraid she would face trouble, particularly after revealing her barbarous acts, reported Ma’an News Agency.The former Israeli soldier pointed out that she hesitated to shoot Palestinians at first, but was convinced by the Israeli army and her fellow soldiers to shoot and defend Israel.“He tells you to go and shoot like this, so you go,“ Zakusilo said, referring to her commander.Commenting on the television program, Kopty, the Palestinian blogger, noted that she was shocked by Zausilo’s comments.Regarding the Israeli army’s barbarous exploitation of killers, the blogger explained, “the military does this to people- it disconnects them from their own humanity, and makes it so easy to kill people and do not even remember the number.”“The Israeli military will probably justify her actions“ she added.While an Israeli army spokeswoman could not confirm whether Zakusilo served in the Israeli army, Amnesty International’s reports say that Israeli soldiers are not usually held accountable for their crimes against Palestinian civilians.© Morocco World News.
