OCC Announces 2013 Community Bank Director Workshop Schedule
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today announced its schedule of workshops for bank directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.
The OCC examiner-led workshops provide practical training and guidance to directors of national community banks and federal savings associations to support the health of community-based financial institutions.
“Community banks and savings associations play a vital role in supporting strong communities and economic growth,” said Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry. “These workshops provide updates on current issues and supervisory expectations that bank directors can use to help grow and succeed.”
The OCC offers four workshops at a cost of $99 each:
- Mastering the Basics: A Director’s Challenge
- Risk Assessment for Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Institution?
- Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know
- Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus
Offered throughout the country, the workshops are geared primarily to outside directors of national community banks and federal savings associations. Management directors may also find the workshops beneficial.
Workshops are limited to 35 participants. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, other supervisory publications, and lunch.
