CBA’s Dustin Matthews to Speak at KBA Annual Conference For Lenders

Community Bank Advisor Founder Dustin Matthews will speak September 28, 2017 at the Kansas Bankers Association’s 2017 Annual Conference for Lenders.

Matthews will speak on Stress Testing and Concentration Monitoring at the event. Stress testing provides guidance for the development of a valid risk management assessment and ensures effective lending decisions. Since it is designed to be a strategic effort which crosses organizational boundaries, all parties, including your Board, should understand and endorse the bank’s stress testing approach and regularly review the results of ongoing stress testing and trends.

The event is a great learning opportunity for entry-level lending positions, as well as experienced lending officers. It is a recommended 9.5 hours CPE credit.
