Attendees will learn from Moody's Analytics and industry experts about
key trends in commercial and agricultural lending and community banking,
and the technological advancements underpinning these developments.

Senior executives, in particular, will benefit from the "New Trends in
Technology" content stream at CALC 2018, which includes sessions on how
to get started with open banking and blockchain, among other topics. The
agenda also includes sessions on the future of small business lending,

and how to maximize its value.

The conference will also address the challenges presented by the
implementation of the Current Expected Credit Loss (CECL) accounting
standard. Participants representing community banks will learn practical
approaches for managing their CECL implementations, and how to
