Happy Anniversary to Dodd-Frank?

July 21, 2015

By Roger Beverage
OBA President and CEO

The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act was signed into law five years ago. The bill is commonly referred to as the “Dodd-Frank” Act and is named after the two chairmen of the committees that deal with financial services and banking matters.

Check out OBA Emerging Leaders program

The OBA's Emerging Leaders program was created with the goal of engaging the next generation of banking leaders in the process of dealing with issues facing their industry through their participation in the OBA. This program will help develop these future leaders so they remain committed, loyal and actively involved in matters that affect their banks and, most importantly, their ability to serve their customers.

Participate in our Regulatory Feedback Initiative!

The Regulatory Feedback Initiative gives bankers a chance to comment anonymously about the bank's examination process. If you have had an exam in the last year and haven't completed a "Post Exam Survey" please direct your staff to click here. We need to know what happened – the good AND the bad. And then let your staff know this is something they should do after every completed exam.
