FDIC: 2019 Community Bankers Workshop

October 16th, 2019

The FDIC & the Idaho Bankers Association are pleased to invite the officers of your bank to attend the 2019 Community Bankers Workshop. The workshop is designed to help bank executive and mid-level officers, both new and experienced, stay abreast of the ever-changing business, economic, and regulatory environment. The workshop will be led by seasoned risk management and compliance field examiners and supervisors from the San Francisco Region (Region).

Examination staff will share information on a variety of hot topics (see below) so don’t miss this opportunity to speak directly with FDIC regional directors, field supervisors, examiners and specialists on their expectations regarding compliance risk.

Who Should Attend?

Executive and mid-level bank officers. In particular, CFOs, BSA, Compliance, and IT officers may be interested in the various breakout sessions. Bank directors may wish to attend if they are interested in detailed information on the instruction topics

Participants are eligible for CPE credits upon request.

Topics Included

  • Many bankers in the Region are experiencing significant competition for core deposits and find themselves relying more and more on non-core funding to meet liquidity needs as their bank grows in this robust economy. We will highlight considerations for bank cash flow analysis, liquidity stress testing, and contingency funding plans, all of which serve as strong risk management techniques.
  • This presentation provides transparency into the CRA evaluation process and the content that examiners review in assigning ratings. We will cover the different types of CRA evaluations, the processes examiners follow, qualifying community development activities and best practices, CRA self-assessments, and CRA hot topics.
  • The Financial Accounting Standards Board’s CECL changes will begin phasing in during 2020. As banks begin to implement CECL, examiners will focus time and attention to the topic during our bank examinations. The workshop will discuss expectations for community banks in implementing CECL, including walking attendees through various methodologies.
