Putting It All Together: Managing CECL To Benefit Your Credit Union

Maya Angelou once said, “I did then what I knew how to do. Now that I know better, I do better.”  In the first three CECL seminars we focused on sharing key information to help credit union leaders know better about CECL.  In this Capstone webinar, we will focus on using that information to do CECL in the best way for your credit union.


In the FIRST half of this webinar, we will pull from the information addressed in earlier webinars such as regulatory requirements, data collection practices, managing losses and balance sheet management. Wethen show methods to apply this information in practical, easy to use processes and procedures including credit risk management and statistical design.  Our ultimate goal is to help make the conversion to CECL as easy and painless as possible for credit union leaders.

In the SECOND half of this webinar, we will introduce some new information concerning New Accounting Rule for Leases - ASU No. 2016‐02, Leases (Topic 842). This will be an introduction for what is new to come!


Primary CECL overview from first three webinars:

  • Thorough review of regulatory expectation guiding the conversion to CECL
  • Review of appropriate statistical methods for modeling probability of loss
  • Demonstrate coordinated methods for data collection and management
  • Demonstrate procedures to utilize credit risk management to manage CECL
Introduction of Key Changes for New Accounting Rule for Leases - ASU No. 2016‐02, Leases (Topic 842) 
  • All leases with terms greater than twelve months must be capitalized on the balance sheet.
  • Capitalized amount is the present value of future lease payments.
  • Asset is amortized over the life of the lease.
  • Liability is amortized over the life of the lease, including interest expense
Financial Effect:
Gross up the Balance Sheet will:
  • Impact regulatory capital ratio
  • Lower the return on assets

Who Should Attend:

  • CEOs/Managers
  • CFOs
  • Lending Officers
  • Compliance Officers
  • ALCO Committee Members
  • Certified Public Accountants (CPAs)
  • Internal Auditors or others working in accounting roles at the CU
