Don't forget: Take post-exam survey!

June 19, 2016

The OBA and the other states that created the Regulatory Feedback Initiative (RFI) have partnered with FinPro, a full service management consulting firm, to help make the RFI survey process more meaningful. We recognize that you operate in a highly regulated environment, and we also know that regulatory examinations are a necessary ingredient for maintaining a safe and sound financial system. 

Our survey is intended to change all of that. Its focus is an anonymous electronic survey for bankers to use in providing an assessment of their most recent examination or visitation. The information is aggregated and analyzed on a national level, to improve the regulatory examination process for all banks.

Bank participation is paramount to the success of the RFI.  We encourage all institutions to visit http://www.allbankers.org to share anonymous information about their last examination.

OBA president to Congress: Over-regulation harms small banks, communities

Excessive regulation is making it more difficult for the nation's community banks to aid their customers, particularly in small, rural communities, according to testimony on Thursday from the Oklahoma Bankers Association's president and CEO to the U.S. House Small Business Subcommittee on Economic Growth, Tax and Capital Access.

OBA President and CEO Roger Beverage told the subcommittee a community bank is much more than simply a bank to residents of small and rural communities and the excessive regulations currently being placed on the industry, particularly from the Dodd-Frank Act, are forcing these community banks to merge with larger ones or simple shutter their doors.
