Whether working with an outside vendor or creating a process in-house, the deadline for getting your Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) methodology in place has come. The significance of this accounting change warrants assessing the economic impact on your balance sheet as soon as possible. As part of your League membership, we have compiled a list of resources to keep you compliant and answer your questions.

InfoSight: This online compliance library recently released a new CECL topic that provides a general overview and aggregates additional resources available to credit unions.

CU PolicyPro: This online policy management system includes two policies plus supporting methodology. Please note, these policies would replace Policies 7600 and 7615.

  1. Policy 7700: Loan Review and Classification (CECL)
  2. Policy 7715: Allowance for Credit Losses
  3. Methodology 7715.10: Allowance for Credit Losses

Compliance Hotline: The compliance experts at ViClarity are here to answer your complex compliance questions whenever you need them.

Huddle: Utilize this online community to get advice and CECL recommendations from your peers across the state.

The League is here to support your credit union as it plans and implements CECL compliance strategies.

Members connect with U.S. Senator J.D. Vance

Credit union advocacy strength is built by the willingness of Ohio credit unions to go above and beyond to advocate for 3.2 million members. Last week, dozens of credit union leaders joined the League for a meeting with U.S. Senator J.D. Vance (R-Ohio) to discuss the successes and challenges facing credit unions and their members in his home state.

Are you keeping up with recent changes to regulatory laws and regulations?

As we start a new year, it is essential that credit unions have a review process for policies and procedures. As the financial industry evolves, so should the resources and guidelines that the credit union follows. As part of your annual League membership, making these updates is more accessible than ever.
