About the Community Bankers for Compliance Program (CBC)
Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI) is pleased to sponsor the annual Community Bankers for Compliance
Program (CBC). Now in its 32nd year, the CBC Program is the most successful and longest running compliance training program in
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.
Basic Membership to the CBC Program consists of the following:
- Quarterly Seminars. A compliance seminar is provided each quarter. Each seminar begins with the Regulatory Update, which
allows persons new to compliance and seasoned professionals to remain current regarding changes in the world of compliance. The
main topic is selected based on the most recent industry and regulatory developments which may have an impact on community
banks. Each person attending the program will receive a detailed manual, written in full narrative, that they can take back to the
bank as a reference and training tool.
- Monthly Newsletter. The Compliance Update newsletter is sent to program members each month. It provides an update of
compliance issues that impact community banks.
- Compliance Hotline. Members of the program may call the Young & Associates’ toll-free number or visit their web site for
compliance questions that arise on a daily basis. Young & Associates has many qualified professionals available to answer your
questions. This service ensures that your bank is just a phone call away from the information you need in order to answer your
- CBC Members Only Web Page. This web page is reserved for banks that are registered members of the Community Bankers for
Compliance (CBC) Program. Members will find special and timely information and tools provided by Young & Associates, Inc., that
can be used to enhance the regulatory compliance function at your bank.
CBC Enhanced Program
In recognition of the rapidly changing regulatory landscape, CBAI will once
again offer additional services for the coming year with the CBC Enhanced
To assure that CBC members 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 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 always 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 find 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.
