Call Report Preparation

Call Report Preparation


Who Should Participate

Call report preparation requires knowledge of bank accounting, bank regulations, and virtually all bank operations. Banks should train a preparer and reviewer. Anyone responsible for preparing, auditing, or signing the call report will find the program valuable. Bankers with responsibility for the entire report should attend both days. Day 2 primarily offers training to those with responsibility for the Lending Schedules and will include Risk Based Capital. Annual training is highly recommended by bank regulators.
