ALM Fundamentals Workshop

The ALM fundamentals workshop is a full-day session specifically designed as a bonus opportunity for Board Members attending the Cornerstone CU League Annual Meeting to increase or refresh their ALM knowledge. Southwest CUNA Management School students, credit union management, and ALCO members will find this information valuable as well. During this session, Deborah L. Rightmire, vice president of ALM Resources, provides instruction to assist credit union professionals in analyzing their fundamental ALM process. Some of the topics include:

  • Review NCUA Letter 11-FCU-02 - Duties of Federal CU Board of Directors – Basic Financial Skills Required
  • Identify the goals of asset/liability management (ALM)
  • Pinpoint typical sources and uses of cash for credit unions
  • Review the ALM Resource Key Ratio Report
  • Identify 11 key financial ratios and impact factors of each
  • Analyze the Allowance for Loan and Lease Loss process (ALL)
  • Explore the Risk-Focused Examination (RFE) requirements

Whether you are new to your position or a seasoned credit union professional wanting an ALM refresher, this ALM Workshop offers an opportunity to gain a better understanding of what the numbers and ratios really mean and provides the tools to make decisions and manage your credit union more effectively.
