CECL Implementation Insights
A 2-Day Virtual Program

As Institutions began first rounds of CECL implementations, institutions of all sizes encountered several meaningful obstacles and challenges along the way – from the conceptual framework, data issues, model/vendor selection, development and testing, assumptions, governance, documentation, and validation/effective challenge.

FMS is proud to offer the part 2 of its successful CECL Virtual Education 2021 series. Join Darling Consulting Group and Plante Moran as they share lessons learned from their recent experiences with CECL implementations and validations. With the latest updates and information available for discussion, participants will gain valuable, best practice insights on how to avoid or overcome some of the common problems and how peers are leveraging the experience to drive additional strategic benefit.

With expert insight into this ever-changing industry “standard” – you don’t want to miss out on information gained today that can assist you in this process tomorrow.
