BankersOnline SURVEY
Today only - a quick 33 questions
We need your input. We are deploying a survey today that asks 33 questions about how your institution is dealing with the impact of the lending compliance regulations that took effect in January, 2014. We're taking a snapshot in time. The survey, which is anonymous, will only be available for 24 hours. We are asking for the participation of every financial institution that uses BankersOnline. [One survey per institution, please.] Help us capture an accurate picture of where we are with lending compliance right now. We estimate you should be able to complete the survey in about 10 minutes depending on how familiar you are with your bank's products and history. Most questions are multiple choice with the last two asking for a short narrative. We appreciate your feedback.

I've searched the threads for guidance on this and can only come up with the rules for National Banks (12 USC 25a). We are a FRB regulated state member bank and our branches, as part of a current savings account promotion where a bonus was advertised, want to enter anyone who opens an account into a drawing for a gift basket. Is this allowable for banks in the State of Iowa?
