ALEXANDRIA, Va. (5/10/11)--Allowance for loan and lease losses (ALLL) exam issues and ALLL interagency supervisory policies will be addressed during a May 26 National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) webinar. The free webinar will begin at 2:00 P.M. ET. The NCUA in a release said that the webinar will also cover how to identify and address current ALLL exam issues with qualitative and environmental factor adjustments. Current economic trends will also be addressed during the webinar. NCUA Chief Economist John Worth, Senior Economist Ralph Monaco, and regional problem case officer Elizabeth DiNapoli will take part in the interactive webinar. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the NCUA experts. Noting that credit unions have worked to understand how qualitative and environmental adjustments can better inform their estimates of inherent losses existing in their loan portfolios, the agency said that its presenters would “benchmark best practices in this area.” For more on the webinar, use the resource link.
