This webinar will discuss disclosure and reporting requirements on banks and other insured depository institutions with respect to certain agreements related to the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) as imposed by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. The CRA Sunshine statute requires certain CRA-related agreements to be publicly disclosed and reported upon annually.
If your financial institution is required to comply with the requirements of the Community Reinvestment Act, it is important for you to understand the disclosure and reporting requirements for certain agreements related to the CRA required by the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). This course will discuss what agreements are covered by GLBA, what disclosure and reporting requirements are addressed in the act, what policies, procedures, and practices your institution should develop to ensure compliance with the act, and the implications of non-compliance with the act.
