first_imgTonight, Thursday, August 16th, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead will return to Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre, marking the second time the band has headlined the scenic outdoor venue. Historically, as headliners, Joe Russo’s Almost Dead has had a difficult time navigating the frequently tumultuous weather at Red Rocks.In 2017, the band was scheduled to make their debut at the venue in April, though was forced to move the performance indoors to the nearby 1st Bank Center. While the 1st Bank Center show was one for the ages—and also marked JRAD’s first arena performance—later in the summer, the Grateful Dead-inspired band returned to Red Rocks yet again, performing a stellar show ahead of Phish‘s annual run at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park, though bassist Dave Dreiwitz was on tour with Ween, forcing Dead & Company bassist Oteil Burbridge to rise to the occasion and sub in with the group.Joe Russo’s Almost Dead Releases SBDs From Phish-Laced RRX Headlining Debut With Oteil BurbridgeHowever, it seems that the stars have finally aligned, and Joe Russo’s Almost Dead is scheduled to perform with the entirety of their lineup (and with good weather to boot) at Red Rocks this evening. For fans unable to make it out for the highly anticipated performance, today, the band has announced that they’ll be webcasting the show via nugs.tv. The show begins at 9:30 p.m. (ET) tonight, with SD and HD formats available. Tune in!last_img read more

Risk isn’t one-size-fits-all – but everyone can prepare

first_imgRisks for credit unions can take many forms, and it’s hard to know which risks to prioritize in one’s training schedule. Our Regulatory Compliance team talks to credit union professionals all day – and we know how varied their circumstances are. That’s why no one – not us, not the NCUA, nor anyone else – can give you a pre-fab risk management program that will solve all your risk problems. However, we can help you figure out how to develop a program that will work for your unique situation.I’ve learned that credit unions must take into account their special circumstances. Who are your members? What products and services do you offer? Have you updated your technology recently? What are your future plans – and how might those alter your existing risk level?One thing every credit union can expect in this area is a risk-focused exam from the NCUA. During these exams, the examiners focus on seven risk factors: credit risk, interest-rate risk, liquidity risk, transaction risk, compliance risk, strategic risk and reputation risk. Some of these can be measured objectively, like interest-rate and liquidity risks, and others are more subjective, like compliance and reputation risks.Something you can do to stay ahead of the game is pay very close attention to the agency’s yearly list of supervisory priorities. This past January, the agency said it would focus on fraud prevention, cybersecurity risk management, commercial lending and consumer compliance issues, among other things, in 2017.It is paramount that credit union professionals consider these priorities in their risk management efforts. It’s like getting the answers to a test ahead of time. When the priorities come out, make sure the heads of the appropriate departments are made aware of them – you don’t have to be in compliance to benefit from knowing what the NCUA is focusing on.Once you have that heads up, prepare like you would for any test. For instance, to prepare for the NCUA’s focus on cybersecurity, check out NAFCU’s interactive workbook tool that helps credit unions do self-assessments of their cybersecurity risk management strategies with the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council’s Cybersecurity Assessment Tool (CAT). The workbook is a self-tallying version of the CAT, which saves valuable time in the assessment process.Another option is to attend NAFCU’s Risk Management Seminar, set for July 24-26 in Denver. The Risk Management Seminar takes a broad look at risk. The conference will offer sessions on digital threats, the latest in cyber security and how to integrate data security and cyber security with an institution’s enterprise risk management (ERM) system. It will also cover fraud analytics, regulatory ERM expectations, creating an ERM charter and working with third parties. At the end, attendees will have the opportunity to earn NAFCU Certified Risk Manager designations.Risk is an ever-changing element of running a credit union – you can’t just “set it and forget it.” That’s why we at NAFCU want to offer you the best-specialized training available for all your risk needs, so you can find the solutions and strategies that fit your credit union best. I hope you’ll take a look at what our conference has to offer, and I look forward to seeing you in Denver. 33SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Devon Lyon Devon Lyon, a NAFCU Certified Compliance Officer (NCCO), was named director of education in August 2015.

Making the Jump: What comes next?

first_imgView Gallery (2 Photos)In early November 2010, College Hockey, Inc. director Paul Kelly and NHL commissioner Gary Bettman helped organize a meeting between NHL officials and a number of college coaches including, among others, Wisconsin’s Mike Eaves, Minnesota’s Don Lucia and Boston University’s Jack Parker.A flight cancelation resulted in Eaves missing the summit, which he described as the first time the NHL got to hear college coaches’ grievances regarding early departures.Much like junior hockey leagues provide a place for college recruits to bide time before joining an NCAA program, college hockey essentially acts as a feeder system for the NHL. The allure of earning money and finally playing in the NHL is hard to resist for many kids.“Playing in the NHL’s been my dream since I was five years old,” former Badger Kyle Turris said in a phone interview. “Having the ability to play in the NHL after the first year of university, as it was, it’s my dream and what I always wanted to do.”Also considerable is the impact of the major junior route in the Canadian Hockey League. Made up of three member leagues, major junior features the same age group as other junior leagues, but the NCAA considers the CHL to be professional, eliminating college eligibility.CHL is generally considered the top developmental hockey league in North America and many of the NHL’s top players – guys like Sidney Crosby, Steven Stamkos and Eric Staal – played major junior instead of NCAA hockey.While those teams are often more talented, a player can only play until he is 20 years old. Not every kid is physically ready to play professional hockey at that point and could potentially find himself stuck with nowhere to go.But the NHL has leverage and isn’t in any position to give it up. Part of the appeal of college hockey is being able to stay for one year or four, depending on the needs of the individual. Forcing kids who want to play NCAA hockey to stay three years might push more of them to go the major junior route instead.And given the NCAA and major junior are equal feeder systems for the NHL, any agreement would need to appeal to not just one, but two other parties.All in all, it makes for a tricky situation.“I think that the simple answer would be, much like football, you can’t leave until after your junior year,” Eaves said. “The problem is, major junior kids are done when they’re 20. So we’re looking at two different levels, and how do we make those two work. And I don’t have the answer to that right now.”Former Badger Derek Stepan left after two years of college hockey and said what makes the situation difficult is how much a player’s individual needs can vary. One player might be physically ready at age 19, while another might not fill out until he turns 23. In short, there’s no catch-all solution.“I’m not quite sure if I was put into that situation, what I would do. There’s different situations for every player,” Stepan said in a phone interview. “I definitely think I still would have gone to college regardless. At the time [I] went into college, I was still a couple years out from even being close to being ready for the NHL.But forcing players to stay a minimum of three years could backfire as well.“There’s also guys on the other end saying this is the way it works, guys can come in and leave early and you can’t really change the rule,” Stepan said. “If you do, they’re just not going to go to college anymore.”While there has only been discussion rather than rule-drafting so far between representatives from college hockey, the NHL and major junior, Eaves said that is the first step toward an eventual policy change.Whether it involves changing draft ages, how long athletes need to stay in college or even how much conversation and persuasion NHL teams can have over their college-bound prospects, Eaves said in the end, something has to be done.“These are little details, but ultimately there’s got to be a policy that the National Hockey League, major junior and college hockey will be able to work together with,” he said.Eaves said another chance to discuss the issue could come when the NHL general managers meet during the Stanley Cup Finals in June.“The first step is getting together in the same room and having dialogue,” Eaves said.“There’s a lot of bright people that are in that room and hopefully they can hear our concerns. We know what the concerns of major junior [are] and we can come up with some kind of solution.”Visit badgerherald.com/blogs/sports for additional quotes and notes.last_img read more
