The American Bankers Association (ABA) has posted on its website a booklet – “Dodd-Frank and Community Banks: Your Guide to 12 Critical Issues” – aimed at helping community bankers focus on the most critical Dodd-Frank issues that are expected to see action in 2012. The guide describes the issues, explains why they matter and offers ways bankers can get involved in order to influence the outcome.
The guide was mailed earlier to all ABA member banks with less than $10 billion in assets and is the latest in a series of free resources ABA has offered to help bankers understand and manage Dodd-Frank Act provisions. Other resources include the ABA Dodd-Frank Tracker, a calendar of deadlines and effective dates, and an extensive summary of the law.
The Guide is made available to ABA and non-ABA members in the public section of the ABA website.
