The League’s Compliance Leadership Team of Paul Guttormsson, Kim Hoppe, and John Engel will provide compliance updates, moderate an interactive compliance discussion, and allow time for roundtable Q&A. More details on their topics below:

Financial Abuse | Paul Guttormsson,  Senior Vice President & General Counsel | The League
We’ll look at the rules surrounding the financial abuse of credit union members. We’ll touch on red flags that can indicate financial abuse, and best practices for reporting it properly. The material will include abuse of the elderly, at-risk adults, and victims of human trafficking.

What Would You Do? | Kim Hoppe, Compliance Resource Analyst | The League
Inspired by the ABC News show and our 2022 Convention Keynote, John Quiñones, in What Would You Do? you will have the opportunity to share how you would tackle various scenarios. We will present the credit union situations and you will work in groups interactively discussing the solutions. All attendees will have an opportunity to participate in the conversations. 
Exploring Adverse Action Notices | John Engel, Director of Legal Affairs | The League

Why are adverse action notices so troublesome? The notices are governed by two very different laws - FCRA and Reg. B - that overlap to some extent but have important differences. 

  • Do they apply to consumer applicants only or to business applicants too? It depends! 
  • Do they apply to loans only or to deposit accounts and employment applications? It depends! 
  • Must you give a notice for a loan approval? It depends! 
  • Is your vendor’s adverse action notice in compliance? It depends! 
  • We’ll explore the answers to these and other issues.

Are ARMS the Solution for Rising Rates?
Kevin Chiappetta, Senior VP Investment Services, President | QuantyPhi CUSO 
Corporate Central Credit Union 
In the credit union industry portfolio managers often incorporate adjustable rate mortgage securities (ARMS) into their portfolio to keep up with a rising rate environment. What happens if ARMS do not perform as anticipated? Instead of finding out post purchase we will demonstrate how portfolio managers can develop an understanding of these products and determine the appropriateness of these products in their specific credit union portfolio. 

Lunch will be provided.  

Full agenda with times coming soon! 


John Engel

John Engel, Director of Legal Affairs | The League

John has been serving Wisconsin credit unions for the past 35 years, and was the first attorney on League staff. He joined The League straight from Marquette University Law School in 1986. He also holds a bachelor and a master of Library & Information Science degree from UW-Milwaukee.

Besides answering credit union compliance calls and emails, John drafts and updates the 71 WCUL loan and account forms. He also screens every bill introduced into the Wisconsin Legislature for its impact on credit unions, providing deeper analysis as needed.

John has also put his research skills to work for 45 years working on his family history. In the days before internet access, he would hitchhike and hop freight trains around the Midwest to get to courthouses, archives, and meet distant relatives. One interesting find was that John's grandfather was elected to a credit union board of directors in 1936. When he died, CUNA Mutual life savings insurance boosted his account payout and loan protection insurance paid off his auto loan!

Paul GuttormssonPaul Guttormsson, Senior Vice President & General Counsel | The League

Paul drafts regulatory comment letters on behalf of credit unions, helping to shape regulations that affect credit union operations, income, and member service. He also supervises The W.C.U.L. Services Corp.’s Compliance Specialist Program, which deploys shared employees among Wisconsin credit unions to provide hands-on support for their compliance efforts. 

Paul also supports The Legal Affairs team with telephone and email assistance to credit unions as well as research and analysis to develop The League’s ii releases, and is a frequent presenter for League compliance roundtables and webinars. Paul graduated with honors from UW-Eau Claire in 1985 and worked as a newspaper editor for several years before attending the University of Wisconsin Law School, where he graduated with honors in 1994. He practiced with the Milwaukee law firm Godfrey & Kahn before joining The League in 2001.
