Education Seminar

2014 Call Report Preparation
Hyatt Regency Newport Beach

This comprehensive seminar will be a review of each schedule of the quarterly call report with emphasis on the extensive 2013-2014 revisions, accounting changes and regulatory guidance.

In January 2014, the regulatory agencies finalized several changes to the call report to provide additional data for safety and soundness or other public purposes. The effective date of the most of the changes will be March 2014.  Basel III has been approved and the regulatory changes to risk weightings and capital will affect the call report. Additionally, any subsequent changes proposed by the regulators affecting the 2014 call report will be covered in the session.

The seminar will provide basic training for new preparers and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. There will be time allotted to address individual bank questions, and discuss new and more complex issues. Participants are encouraged to bring their bank’s latest call report for resolution of questions during the session.

Participants will receive a detailed 200 page manual that is an excellent reference resource. It will include a summary of general instructions and procedures for less experienced preparers and lists of source information needed for call report preparation. The instructor will be available to answer future call report questions by email.
