Pennsylvania Credit Union Association

Compliance Cavalry

Customized solutions to meet your credit union's compliance needs.

Credit unions are becoming overwhelmed with new compliance responsibilities. Sometimes those responsibilities require a more in-depth solution than a phone inquiry. That’s why the Association has strengthened its Compliance area to include compliance and operations consultants that work directly with credit unions to address specific challenges.

Compliance Cavalry is particularly helpful for credit unions without dedicated compliance staff, as well as assist busy CEOs or compliance staff .No matter what the reason, your compliance program will benefit from our Compliance Officer’s years of training and experience working in credit union compliance. Our Compliance Officers are CUNA-certified as both a BSA Compliance Specialist, as well as a Credit Union Compliance Expert (CUCE).

The service begins by meeting with the CEO or designated staff to determine which compliance projects needs immediate attention. Together you’ll determine how you can best address those needs. Compliance Cavalry can help your credit union implement a comprehensive compliance program, or simply address a specific compliance need. Support for Compliance Calvary can be a combination of in-person meetings, telephone, or email support.

Typical components of an enterprise-wide compliance program include:
  • Comprehensive review of existing policies and procedures for compliance
  • Provide additional policies and procedures for compliance
  • Training staff to use online compliance tools such as InfoSight and CU PolicyPro
Staff and Board training is a key component of the Compliance Calvary program. Training can be tailored to best meet your needs. Typical staff training sessions includes:
