Aldridge Pite presenting at the Georgia Bankers Association Compliance Conference
Aldridge Pite partner Judy Newberry will be presenting: Servicemembers Civil Relief Act (SCRA) & the Military Lending Act (MLA) Update with New Foreclosures at the Georgia Bankers Association Compliance Conference on September 18, 2019. The Servicemember’s Civil Relief Act (“SCRA”) is a federal statute which provides a wide range of protections for military personnel and their family members. By providing for the temporary suspension of judicial and administrative proceedings and transactions that may adversely affect servicemembers during their military service, the SCRA enables servicemembers to focus their energy on the defense of the United States. The SCRA provides conditional protection for servicemembers and their families against foreclosures and evictions as well as reduced interest rates on certain obligations incurred prior to military service. It is imperative that financial institutions have controls in place to ensure compliance with the SCRA in order to protect the institution from regulatory, civil, and reputational risks.
The conference relies upon industry experts to update banks and compliance personnel on the latest regulatory guidance and best practices. The first day of the conference includes sessions dedicated to lending compliance. Register here.
