Call Report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Annual training is highly recommended by regulators. Banks should have a trained preparer and a trained reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, reviewing, or signing a Call Report will find this program valuable. Experienced preparers and reviewers will benefit from the updates and the continued discussion on accounting and financial reporting matters. The seminar will provide basic training for new preparers, though some basic accounting knowledge is helpful, and complete coverage of new and complex issues for experienced preparers. Specific areas of concern should be communicated to the sponsor in advance of the seminar so that these areas can be covered with appropriate adequacy.

Please Note: Bankers who attend this seminar do not need to attend the half day Call Report Preparation seminar on February 16. The February 16 class is designed for bankers with years of call report experience who are only interested in recent changes. The recent call report changes will be discussed in both programs. Please contact the LBA if you have any questions.
