TCA was born in 1991 to provide high quality compliance consulting and related assistance to the nation’s banking industry. Today, more that 20 years later, TCA continues to be among the best and most responsive when it comes to helping banks navigate their increasing complicated compliance environment.

TCA’s ability to develop new, cost-effective services that help banks adapt to rapidly changing compliance requirements has drawn more than 300 institutions to the TCA compliance family. For example, many TCA clients benefit from our Visiting Compliance Manager program, a unique, short-term service that connects banks with a specific TCA professional who will help solve a short-term compliance problem. Other clients utilize our Virtual Compliance Manager service – up-to-date virtual system that allows us to remotely conduct the same, meticulous compliance reviews our staff conducts in person, but without travel and related costs.

The TCA people make a positive difference as well. Our staff includes several professionals who hold the coveted CRCM (certified regulatory compliance manager) designation… a Certified Fraud Examiner… a former bank CFO…former bank attorney, compliance managers and former examiners.

TCA client banks also benefit under Tom Thomas’ role as a director of Park Ridge (IL) Community Bank, where he is a member of the Board’s Audit Committee. The insights Mr. Thomas gains as a director are part of TCA’S approach to compliance management. TCA operates nationwide and has ongoing affiliations with the American Bankers Association, the Michigan Bankers Association, the Montana Bankers Association, the Heartland Community Bankers Association, and the California Bankers Association.

Aware. Experienced. Professional. TCA, the best compliance support in banking.

Over the past 47 years, SBA has grown in terms of total assistance provided and its array of programs tailored to encourage small enterprises in all areas. SBA’s programs now include financial and federal contract procurement assistance, management assistance, and specialized outreach to women, minorities and armed forces veterans. The SBA also provides loans to victims of natural disasters and specialized advice and assistance in international trade.

Nearly 20 million small businesses have received direct or indirect help from one or another of those SBA programs since 1953, as the agency has become the government’s most cost-effective instrument for economic development. In fact, SBA’s current business loan portfolio of roughly 219,000 loans worth more than $45 billion makes it the largest single financial backer of U.S. businesses in the nation.

Over the past 10 years, (FY 1991-2000), the SBA has helped almost 435,000 small businesses get more than $94.6 billion in loans, more than in the entire history of the agency before 1991. No other lender in this country – perhaps no other lender in the world – has been responsible for as much small business financing as the SBA has during that time.
