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 33rd year, the CBC Program is the most successful and longest running compliance training program in the country.

Upcoming CBC Program April 30 & May 1, 2024:

Fourth Quarter CBC Program

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 compliance questions.
  • 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 Program.

Program Flexibility

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.
