Webinar: Are You Prepared for CECL?
Tuesday, December 14, 2021, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

CECL – the acronym has been around a while now, but things are about to get real. Regardless of where you are in your CECL preparation journey, it’s critical that you understand the potential impact to your institution and get prepared before the ALLL gets turned on its head.


  • Explain the new current expected credit losses (CECL) accounting standard
  • Understand the relevant regulatory guidance and resources
  • Distinguish between possible methodologies and calculations
  • Develop an implementation strategy
  • Know how to record the transition adjustment


The new CECL accounting standard is a game-changer in terms of the allowance for loan and lease loss (ALLL) methodology and calculation. Going from an incurred loss model today to an expected loss model tomorrow will most likely result in higher allowances for most financial institutions. It’s imperative that you understand how CECL will impact your financial institution and perform back-testing long before the required adoption in 2023. Are you prepared?


This informative session is designed for individuals involved in the ALLL calculation and CECL implementation.
