Webinar: What Directors Should Know About CECL, ALLL & the New Credit Impairment Standards
Thursday, September 26, 2019, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

CECL represents one of the biggest changes in a generation regarding how financial institutions evaluate, calculate, and determine the allowance for loan losses. In addition to methodology changes, there will be a short-term impact to capital, which must be considered as part of capital planning.

This webinar will provide the most up-to-date regulatory and industry guidance for CECL and its implementation – an area that has continued to evolve well after the standards were published. Directors are responsible for determining the appropriate level of reserves. Join us to learn about specific CECL changes and the regulatory expectations for the board in setting the appropriate level of reserves.
