Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Workshops throughout the Country in 2011

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today announced its 2011 schedule of workshops to be held around the country for directors of nationally chartered community banks and federal savings associations.

"The workshops provide directors of national banks and federal savings associations an important opportunity to sharpen their skills and to better understand their responsibilities and the risks facing their institutions," said acting Comptroller of the Currency John Walsh.

The OCC offers four different workshops: "A Director’s Challenge: Mastering the Basics" ($100),  "Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank" ($65), "Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know" ($65), and "Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus" ($65).

Offered throughout the country, the workshops are targeted to outside directors of nationally chartered community banks and federal savings associations with assets of less than $1 billion.  Management directors may also find the workshops beneficial.  Workshops are limited to 35 participants each.  Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, other supervisory material, a continental breakfast, and lunch.
