The American Bankers Association has released two new compliance how-to books.
The Compliance Sourcebook and "Winning with CRA: Concept, Tools and Resources" are now available from the trade group.
The Sourcebook, an update of a volume first published in 1986, provides bankers with 167 pages of summaries of different laws and regulations. It also provides hints for hiring compliance officers, budgeting, setting objectives, and developing monitoring programs.
"Winning with CRA" details the recent changes in community reinvestment rules. It also describes how to improve a bank's CRA rating through better market research and new loan products.
The Sourcebook costs $165 for ABA members, and $245 for nonmembers. The CRA guide is $135 for members, and $210 for nonmembers.
