Regulators to Address Bankers Nationwide at ABA's Virtual Regulatory Compliance Conference


Top staff from the Federal Reserve, CFPB, FDIC and OCC will address America’s banks during the American Bankers Association’s 35th annual Regulatory Compliance Conference June 22-24. The three-day conference will be held virtually for bankers across the country.

During the conference, which will bring together the banking industry’s leading compliance professionals, attendees will hear directly from ABA president and CEO Rob Nichols, senior federal regulators and the nation’s top compliance experts.

“This year’s Regulatory Compliance Conference offers regulatory and compliance professionals the opportunity to learn about the critical compliance issues facing our industry today,” said ABA President and CEO Rob Nichols. “The program also reflects the important national conversations we’ve had throughout the last year on promoting diversity, equity and inclusion and closing the racial economic gap. I encourage bankers nationwide to register and participate in this essential dialogue and the role compliance plays.”

The conference is the nation’s largest banking compliance conference and the only one of its kind because it’s designed by bankers for bankers. Sessions will cover issues ranging from consumer protection, lending compliance, technology and innovation, compliance risk management and more.

This year’s event also features virtual marketplace engagement opportunities including roundtable discussions on key issues.
