Audit Report Writing

Thursday, July 27th, 2017 11:00 am - 1:00 pm ET

The art of audit report writing demands far more than simply listing the four elements of a finding - criteria, condition, cause, and effect. Even adding a fifth element, the recommendation, may be insufficient. This boilerplate approach to writing can threaten independent, critical thinking and undermine the entire audit process, ultimately tarnishing the credibility of the auditor. Skilled auditors require a method that aligns what they experienced during the reviewing process with what they compose during the writing process.

This highly specialized webinar offers a deep and useful toolbox of techniques that auditors can use when ... (more)

Regulation By Enforcement

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017 11:00 am - 1:00 pm ET

WHAT?

In a March 9, 2016 speech Director Cordray confirmed that consent orders that accompany the Bureau’s public enforcement actions, "provide detailed guidance for compliance officers across the marketplace about how they should regard similar practices at their own institutions. If the same problems exist in their day-to-day operations, they should look closely at their processes and clean up whatever is not being handled appropriately." He added that "it would be ‘compliance malpractice... (more)

Residential Construction Lending

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm ET

Community Banks are often faced with construction loan requests that are underwritten by Consumer and Commercial Lenders who apply the same underwriting standards used for retail and commercial loans to Residential Construction Loans. The problem with this approach is that Construction Lending is a highly specialized form of lending requiring a different approach. It is actually Asset-Based Lending, whereby funds are advanced based on the successful completion of various phases of the project and other requirements being met.

Many problems can occur during construction that can leave lenders highly exposed unless they are unwritten p... (more)
