> Webinar: The Board's Role with the Loan Committee

Wednesday, November 07, 2012
3:00 PM Eastern Daylight Time
4:30 PM


Lenders rely on directors for their input on loan decisions. In turn, directors rely on the credit union’s lenders to provide pertinent information that will support good loan decisions. This doesn't have to be a vicious circle. This webinar will provide information and tools to assist directors in receiving the right amount of information to make informed decisions. Directors will learn the type of analysis they need to perform to fulfill their responsibilities. The credit union’s ultimate goal is strong loan decisions coming from the Loan Committee.


  • Developing a committee charter that defines roles/responsibilities
  • Setting macro-risk parameters, such as desired product mix, concentration limits, etc., in tandem with management
  • Reviewing loan production, asset quality reports, and trends on a more in-depth level than the full board
  • Exceptions to policy (individually with credit approvals and in the aggregate to assess overall lending within established risk tolerance)
  • Good questions directors should ask when a loan is presented
  • Tools provided with the manual: samples of loan presentation summaries that make it easier to quickly understand the credit request, sample committee charter, sample exceptions reports, and more


This informative session is designed for any director (but especially those on the Loan Committee), loan officers, compliance officers, loan review officers, etc.
