Need to fill downtime over the holidays, how about training?

first_img continue reading » Season Greetings Compliance friends, I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays!As work-related obligations tend to slow down around the holidays, I sometimes try to use this time effectively by catching up on any webinars or training I might have missed throughout the year. Some of these are required based upon my NCCO or CLE obligations, while others are just fun topics I’ve been interested in and want to learn more about! It seems many credit union Board members have also found some time to kill, since NAFCU has been asked a few times over the past week about NCUA’s training requirements for board members.Rather than specific board training requirements, NCUA provides general guidelines addressing the Board’s oversight of the credit union, financial literacy and fiduciary duties among other topics. From there, the credit union’s internal policies and procedures typically set guidelines for what training is required of the board.

Crow stripped of his Erotica venue

first_imgAuckland Now 29 Sep 2011First Steve Crow had to can his Rugby World Cup Boobs on Bikes Parade because no one wanted it, now the porn king is being stripped of the venue for his Erotica Lifestyles Expo. After 12 years, Auckland’s ASB Showground will no longer play host the adult entertainment expo after a contract between the two parties ended. “Their contract expired and we’re not renewing it. The show had seen better days and had dropped off in popularity,” ASB Showground’s chief executive Mark Frankham said. Speaking at the Auckland Council’s culture arts and events forum on Tuesday, Auckland Agricultural, Pastoral and Industrial Shows Board chairman Dave Scott said the board, which owns the showground, had been trying for a long time to show Crow the door. “It’s taken us several years to move him out legally and we’ve forgone a bit of income to do that,” he said.http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/5700327/Crow-stripped-of-his-Erotica-venuelast_img read more
