Webinar: Director Series: Understanding the ALLL
Credit quality remains a primary focus of regulatory examinations, as balance sheets continue to exhibit the strains of a poor economy, decreased loan demand and depressed real estate values. One of the primary factors of sound credit practice is the existence of an appropriate Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses (ALLL) and a sound methodology for maintaining adequate reserve levels. Part lending science, part gut instinct and part speculation, the process of planning for credit risk is an essential element of your credit union's operations. Put simply, the board needs to understand the magic behind the math. Is your board up to the task? This webinar will review both the technical and practical aspects of the ALLL process, as well as the need for board supervision of the loan review system and management's effectiveness in identifying, monitoring and addressing asset quality problems.
