Bank Exam Prep Center

Being prepared for an examination is a top priority for every bank. West Virginia Bankers Association is part of the Coalition of Bankers Associations which represents 38 bankers associations across America and was formed to provide banks with the building blocks for successful and fair examinations.

In 2010, the Regulatory Feedback Initiative (RFI) was launched to improve consistency through a confidential electronic survey where banks can anonymously provide details on their most recent examination or visitation. The Bank Exam Prep Center features expert analysis through survey data on where agencies are focusing as well as banker takeaways to ensure banks are prepared for their next exam.

Working together bankers can eliminate surprises and inconsistencies in their examinations; we encourage every bank to use the Bank Exam Prep Center and continue to ask for every bank to complete a Post Exam Survey. For more information, click here.
