The meetings provided an opportunity for bankers to discuss the local and state economy and how new regulations impact community banks and their ability to serve customers in Wisconsin. Topics discussed included Bank Secrecy Act/Anti Money Laundering (BSA/AML), Ability to Repay/Qualified Mortgage (ATR/QM), Brokered Deposits, and the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act (HMDA), among others.

“It’s an honor to be asked to provide insight to the regulatory agencies,” said McCoy. “As a truly local, family-focused bank serving Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois, I feel it is important to bring a voice to matters concerning policies that impact our local economy, customers, and community family, as well as our ability to lend to consumers and small businesses.”
