Effective loan administration and credit review are essential keys to a bank’s maintenance of a strong loan portfolio through good and bad times. Bank directors play an important role in overseeing that function by obtaining accurate and adequate timely information, reviewing that information critically, asking probing questions, and directing corrective action.

Calvin Henderson will take us through lessons to be learned from the Great Recession – what were the mistakes made by failed banks in loan administration and credit review. He will also provide you specific suggestions on how to strengthen your board’s and bank’s efforts such as establishing and maintaining an independent credit review function.
