Sageworks Summit keynote to address change management in light of CECL

By Credit Union Insight staff, April 6, 2017

Sageworks, a financial information company that provides lending, credit risk and portfolio risk solutions to credit unions, announced Alan Parisse will be the keynote speaker for the 2017 Risk Management Summit, which takes place September 25-27 in Denver.

Parisse is one of the most sought-after speakers and authors, having been the only person ever to be named “One of the Top 21 Speakers for the 21st Century” and be inducted into the National Speakers Association’s Hall of Fame. This September, Parisse will use his diverse life and leadership experience to deliver a powerful address with immediate, actionable takeaways around Sustaining Success in Changing Times.

With the Financial Accounting Standards Board’s (FASB) recent guidance on the current expected credit loss (CECL) model, Parisse’s change management expertise aligns with Sageworks’ and the Summit’s goal of helping financial institutions adapt to the ever-changing regulatory environment. The CECL model has been touted as the “biggest change ever to bank accounting,” and Parisse’s session will coach leaders on how to overcome internal challenges, effectively communicate to stakeholders in times of change and leverage change for opportunity.

In addition to this keynote, the Summit’s agenda will also cover the full life of the loan – spanning business development through portfolio management for banks and credit unions. The Summit will feature presentations from industry leaders, panels that include their peer institutions, roundtable discussions and networking opportunities. For more information on sessions, see the Agenda.

Early-bird registration for the Summit has been extended through April 28, where bank and credit unions can save as much as $300 per person. For more information or to register, visit or email
