Industry is abuzz over CBA Live 2014

CBA Live 2014, the highly anticipated annual event hosted by the Consumer Bankers Association, is set to begin on March 31 in Washington, D.C., and will run until April 2.

Conference offers industry participants many benefits
Banking industry professionals may want to head over to the conference for any number of reasons. For one, they could potentially network with key individuals including banking executives, and will have the opportunity to speak with lawmakers, regulators and other individuals who play a crucial role in crafting new policies.

In addition, they will have the chance to broaden their understanding of the banking industry by taking part in roundtable conversations with others who work in the sector.

Gain insight into compliance
Several regulatory regimes - including the Dodd-Frank Act and Basel III - were enacted in the years following the financial crisis, and these landmark reforms have made substantial changes to the regulatory environment in and of itself. To make this situation even more challenging, many industry groups and lawmakers have challenged these regimes either in court or through new legislation.

The conference will be an excellent place to learn about the latest regulations in the banking sector, and attendees can leverage the committees, roundtables, market experts and speeches to gather the information they need.
