Compliancywright, which I had renamed Garden Odyssey when I retired in 2017, is no more. Well, not exactly since all its posts have been merged into Haiku Journey where I’ve also merged my Ledyard Walks blog. But here’s what I had to say about compliance and my role in it.
“Professionally, I’m Raymond E. Hasson, NCCO, although I prefer Ray to the full name, I take a lot of pride in the NCCO. I completed the National Association of Federal Credit Union’s (NAFCU) Compliance School shortly after joining CorePlus Federal Credit Union in July 2001. Great timing on taking over regulatory compliance, training, and security for a federally regulated financial institution.
Being a NAFCU Certified Compliance Officer may not sound like an exciting job. And when you’re deep into a new regulation it is ok to ask yourself, “Exactly why do I like this job?” But it does get exciting when you realize that the what and how of regulatory compliance can either cripple or empower the business you’re helping.
So that’s what I did, look for that sweet spot where compliance becomes part of the solution.”
