Sageworks to host 2015 Risk Management Summit in Chicago
Following three successful years in Nashville, Tennessee, the 2015 Risk Management Summit heads to a new city this September. Bank and credit union executives and leading industry experts will convene September 23-25 in Chicago, Illinois, for the premier banking conference covering the ALLL and stress testing.
Given pending changes to the ALLL as a result of the FASB’s CECL model, continued challenges within the allowance and increasing focus on stress testing, the Summit is designed to give bankers actionable insights from industry experts and a chance to ask questions about how other institutions tackle some of these challenges.
The conference will feature a combination of presentations, panel discussions, peer-group roundtables and networking opportunities. Summit attendees will also have the opportunity to attend a networking reception and the exclusive Banker Appreciation Night, to be announced in March. Given the downtown venue, attendees will also be steps from top Chicago destinations like Navy Pier, Michigan Avenue and Lake Michigan.
In September 2014, more than 150 bankers and industry experts from almost 40 states attended the Risk Management Summit, discussing topics like the FASB’s CECL model, qualitative risk factors, Basel III, model validation and stress testing best practices. Attendee feedback was extremely positive, as 97 percent of attendees said they would recommend the Summit to other bankers, and 93 percent would consider attending again in the future.
Registration for the 2015 Risk Management Summit will open on February 16, 2015; however, bankers can sign up now to be notified once additional information is released.
