Fair Lending Expert (FLEX) Group

Our FLEX group is a collection of financial industry compliance, audit, and fair lending professionals who are looking to better themselves and their organizations’ fair lending programs. The group offers continuing education credits, networking, and the ability to ask our experts your questions live during our meetings. Check out our FAQs below to learn more.

FLEX Group FAQs

The FLEX Group brings together compliance officers, auditors, and our own Fair Lending Experts (FLEs) from around the country to train you on fair lending risks, allow you to ask our experts questions, and share group experiences on what regulators are focusing on.

We meet every other month for two hours. The first hour focuses on a fair lending training topic, and the second hour is dedicated to discussing hot topics, answering your specific fair lending questions, and sharing recent exam and audit experiences.

Absolutely! You will earn 1 credit hour for each meeting for a total of 6 credit hours per year. If you’re one of our Certified Fair Lending Experts (FLE), you will earn all of the CPE credits you need to maintain your certification. Our CPE credits also count toward other certifications, like the CRCM or CCBCO.

Your institution or company pays $800/year (billed annually) to join the group. You can have as many people as you’d like attend the meetings. We do ask that those members that join be involved directly in compliance, fair lending, or audit. This group is not targeted to lenders.

All of our meetings happen through WebEx. While it’s not required, it would be great if you had a webcam so we can see you!

That’s not a problem. All of our meetings will be recorded for you to watch at your convenience.
