Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Syracuse, New York
WASHINGTON—The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for national community bank directors in Syracuse, New York, at the Sheraton Syracuse University, June 9-10, 2009.
The workshops provide practical information that expand bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. The workshops cover risk assessment ("Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank") and credit risk ("Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus").
Workshops will be held on consecutive days and cost $65 each. Individuals may register for one or both of the workshops. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, a community bank supervision handbook, other supervisory material, a continental breakfast, and lunch. Workshops are limited to the first 50 registrants and are geared primarily to outside directors of national community banks with assets of less than $1 billion. Management directors may also find the workshops beneficial.
