Sageworks recently announced the dates and location for the 2016 Risk Management Summit. Set for September 14-16 at the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center in Austin, TX, the Summit is the premier banking conference covering the ALLL and stress testing, and it will feature presentations from industry leaders, panels, roundtable discussions and networking opportunities.
With the release of the FASB’s final guidance on the current expected credit loss (CECL) model expected in the first half of 2016, the Summit will provide the latest information on how banks and credit unions should prepare for the transition to the new model and what the impact may be. The conference will also discuss current ALLL and stress testing information, including best practices on qualitative adjustments, loss methodologies and leveraging stress test results.
Summit attendees are also invited to the popular networking cocktail reception, scheduled for the evening of September 14th, as well as Banker Appreciation Night, scheduled for the evening of September 15th, for additional networking opportunities and unique Austin experiences.
New for the 2016 Summit is an exclusive opportunity for Sageworks clients – the Sageworks ALLL User Pre-Conference. Scheduled for the morning of September 14th, the Pre-Conference will provide solution training, best practice sharing and networking opportunities with other users. It replaces Sageworks User Breakout Sessions that previously occurred during the Summit.
Last year, more than 200 bankers and industry experts gathered in Chicago for the 2015 Risk Management Summit. Attendee feedback was extremely positive, with 99 percent stating they would recommend the Summit to their peers. One attendee commented, “[I] came back with several immediate action items that I think will help improve my ALLL process."
