The President's Report - MCU Logo plus Tracie Kenyon's Photo
Has anyone else been noticing the longer days? They make me feel like spring may in fact be around the corner even if the temperatures remain in winter territory.

Monday is Presidents' Day, so the MCU office will be closed. I hope that you all are planning to enjoy a long weekend "weather" you are skiing, hiking, or just spending some time on the couch with a good book. If there's anything that we can help you with, please let us know.

NCUA Board Meeting Recap: The NCUA Board met yesterday and issued both a proposed rule and a final rule.

Board members also adopted a final rule to require federally insured credit unions to notify the NCUA as soon as possible, but no later than 72 hours, after they reasonably believe that a reportable cyber incident has occurred. NCUA promised more detailed guidance prior to the September 1 effective date.
