NEW YORK, April 22, 2019 – Moody’s Analytics, a global provider of financial intelligence, invites senior banking and credit union professionals to attend Countdown to CECL, May 1-3 in Orlando, Florida.

The conference will bring together representatives from credit unions, community banks, and regional banks. Attendees will learn from peers at similar institutions across the industry as well as from Moody’s Analytics and other industry experts.

Nearly 20 sessions are organized into two streams at this event: one specifically for attendees from credit unions and community banks, and the other focused on regional banks. Both streams will explore the impacts of CECL and showcase best practices for CECL implementation.

Among the distinguished guests will be Alison Clark, Chief Accountant for the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA). Ms. Clark will discuss the suitability of the Weighted Average Remaining Maturity method for smaller credit unions and how the NCUA is preparing for the new standard. Leslie Seidman, Independent Corporate Director, Former Chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board, and member of the Moody’s Corporation Board of Directors, will trace the origins of CECL and highlight other standards that firms may find relevant for CECL implementation.

“Our event is one of very few for CECL executives from institutions of all sizes—with content tailored to match,” said Laurent Birade, Senior Director at Moody’s Analytics. “The deadline for CECL is fast approaching. At Countdown to CECL, attendees will interact with their peers and industry experts as we examine the implementation process and best practices that have already emerged.”
