CECL Update for Community Banks

This course will cover the most practical advice for community banks adopting CECL. We will explore the results that a community bank might expect to see from its CECL calculation at adoption, the pros and cons of several widely used models, and the role that qualitative factors will play in the calculation. Attendees will leave the presentation with information about how different CECL techniques might ultimately change their reserve levels, recognize the impact of modeling decisions they have made or are planning to make, and have a much more in-depth understanding of how to build a qualitative factor framework that works with CECL and satisfies their auditors.
