I hope some other BOL users will join me in applauding the staff at BOL. I make it a point to read the Guru questions sent to my inbox each Monday.

More importantly, I learn more from browsing the forums each day then could reading regs all day.

The practical application of these regs is what really makes the job of Compliance Officer easier.

Good job BOL!

I'm all for a Standing "O" for the team.

In addition to all that you mentioned, the annual Lending Triage, the BSA/AML conference (both of which can be attended in-office with their live-stream capability)and the various webinars on specific topics add to the value that they provide.

Okay, first of all...Kiss up!

Second, I only call you that because I didn't think of it first!

Third, totally agree: Give credit where credit is due.

Thanks to all the BOL Gurus and contributors.

BOL is the first place I search when I have a compliance question. I also hit up the Alphabet Soup at least once or twice a day (if not more!). Amazing how this site is free when I'm paying hundreds of dollars a year to other industry groups that don't provide nearly as much to bankers......

Job well done BOL!! smile

M Cockrell,

I figured that was coming from someone. I actually have a pile of regs sitting on my desk. When I need to take a break from the reading, I always get sucked into the forums. Then I find that I have learned more from my colleagues in Compliance.

Like I said, it's hearing about other's "practical applications" that really helps out.

I love the BOL gurus. I learn more from the forum discussions than anything. They are one of the best resources that I have. I look forward to reading the questions and answers every day. It's good to know I am not the only one with compliance questions.
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

I'm glad someone started this thread, b/c I wanted to. BOL has always been helpful. I can do a search and find Guidance, Guidelines, and commentary I wasn't aware of and could've never found on my own.

I also search the threads every morning. It's like reading the news headlines to get a quick glance at what's going on in the world.

Thank you to the gurus for your patience and advice. Thank you to the mods. It can't be easy to be a moderator and I'm sure it's pretty thankless as well.

THANK YOU BOL!!

Don't forget their webinars. Definitely some of the best compliance training out there. Outstanding follow-up on the Q&As.

I agree! There are some of us that read more than post, but it certainly doesn't mean that the information isn't very useful.

I, too, use Alphabet Soup all the time. Love the new format with the Commentary below the sections.

Thanks BOL!

I love BOL! It has been a tremendous help. It is so nice to be able to come to one spot and find what you are looking for. I too use Alphabet Soup all the time.

Thank you for the positive feedback. We appreciate it very much. Ever since BOL was launched in October, 2000, we have planned for further products and services, and we are incredibly excited about a subscription-based service we will be launching in May called BOL Insiders. We look forward to sharing information about it with you soon.

BOL is one of my first stops every morning!
I have been in banking for awhile but am pretty new to compliance and BOL has made the transition easier than I would have expected!

Thank You! All of the compliments are doubled. I learn so much from what other people (lending/compliance) run into and the Guru's straight common sense answers. I love that they answer a question and most times cite the reg, that saves SO MUCH time for me. Also receiving the daily briefings helps alot to stay on top of things, which these days is like herding cats.

I'm reviving this thread. I've done 5 or 6 searches today on BOL for various things. I'd still be researching item #1 without BOL.

Thanks to everyone who keeps BOL running and all the helpful BOLers out there!!
