An exclusive membership for bankers to connect, inspire, and master the art of the Community Reinvestment Act

Are you exam ready?

 

The CRA Hub is a new way to connect, assess your bank’s performance and forge community development impact through your CRA program.

“We have found the CRA Hub to be a tremendous resource…especially as we are readying ourselves for FDIC CRA Exam.”

– Kelli Diserens, Senior Vice President
Independent Financial
Waco, Texas

  • You are new to CRA due to a promotion, new job or position or were never formally trained on CRA.
  • You understand key CRA program elements and have navigated through your first CRA exam cycle and want to deepen your understanding of CRA best practices.
  • You are making progress on the integrity of your bank’s CRA data collection, maintenance and/or reporting and want to ensure enhanced data integrity.
  • You want to learn from experts about refreshing your CRA programs, and discover innovative programs to consider in your assessment areas.
  • You are navigating CRA regulatory reform or you suspect reform is on the horizon.
  • You want to vet an idea and discuss your approach to CRA decisions with CRA colleagues who understand the unique challenges in your programs.
  • You want to forge potential partnerships for impact in a broader regional area.
