What is a Certified Community Lender?
A Certified Community Lender (CCL) is a new designation designed to professionalize the position of a community bank lender. Similar to a Certified Public Accountant, the designation establishes a standard of knowledge for community bank lenders. It allows you to demonstrate to your employer that you have achieved that knowledge.
Who Developed the Designation of a Certified Community Lender?
At the suggestion of numerous community bankers, the Community Bankers Association of Illinois (CBAI), working in conjunction with other community bank associations throughout the country and Dave Kemp, Bankers Management Inc., College Park, Georgia, developed the concept.
