Indiana Bankers Association is pleased to sponsor the annual Community Bankers for Compliance Program (CBC). The CBC program is the most successful and longest running compliance training program in the country.

The CBC Program will provide your bank with up-to-date information on the ever changing bank regulations, as well as guidance for structuring and maintaining your in-bank compliance program. In addition, it provides a forum where those responsible for regulatory compliance can discuss issues and exchange ideas with other community bankers.


Regulatory Approval

The Community Bankers for Compliance Program has passed the test of regulatory scrutiny. After the original program was eveloped in other states, the regulatory agencies recognized the increased understanding and ability to deal with regulatory issues by those bankers who were members. Since then, the program has received approval from the regulatory agencies not only for its comprehensiveness, but also for its practicality.

Compliance Manuals

When you attend a seminar, you want to focus on the material being presented. It is often too difficult, though, to listen to a speaker and write detailed notes at the same time. For this reason, the Community Bankers for Compliance Program manuals are written in full narrative. This also enables the banker to take the materials to the bank as a reference to the regulations and as a training manual for other employees.

Risk Management

The CBC is a proven method to reduce the risk of regulatory actions against your bank for reasons such as failure to establish a valid compliance management program, failure to establish compliance policies, failure to provide adequate compliance training, and failure to monitor internal compliance. In addition, with each change in regulatory compliance regulations, there is an increased risk of inadvertent compliance errors. The CBC reduces the possibility that these errors will occur because your employees will have a greater understanding of the regulatory requirements.

Additional Information: 

CBC Enhanced Program
In recognition of the rapidly changing regulatory landscape, IBA will once again offer additional services for the coming year with the new CBC Enhanced Program. Under the CBC Enhanced Program, members can also choose additional options for service that include consulting services, either on-site or off-site. Please refer to the insert in this brochure for information on the different levels for the CBC Program and the services offered under each.

Program Flexibility
To assure that CBC member banks are getting the most out of their memberships (whether it be the Basic CBC  Program or the CBC Enhanced Program), the program is designed with flexibility in mind. We realize that job responsibilities change quite frequently within some banks, and for this reason, membership is granted to banks, not individual bank employees.  This enables you to send your bank’s compliance officer, as well as an additional representative as the topics apply to the various areas of the bank. By sending these representatives to the sessions that matter most to them, you are greatly enhancing the bank’s ability to implement compliance throughout the bank.

Who Should Attend
The focus of the CBC is on regulatory compliance. It is essential that your bank’s compliance officer attend. But because regulatory compliance should be approached from a team perspective, many banks have also found it extremely beneficial to send additional employees to sessions on topics that relate directly to their positions in the bank. These employees typically come from the customer service, lending, or operations departments in the bank. To support this team effort, the CBC has been priced to enable your bank to send additional employees at a substantial savings.
