WASHINGTON -- The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Albuquerque, N.M., at the Sheraton Albuquerque Uptown, September 29-30, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.
The Risk Governance workshop on September 29 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information for directors to effectively measure and manage risks. The workshop also focuses on the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry.
The Compliance Risk workshop on September 30 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises on the critical elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The workshop also focuses on major compliance risks and critical regulations. Topics of discussion include the Bank Secrecy Act, Anti-Money Laundering and Qualified Mortgage Regulations. The instructors will also touch on the new Truth-in-Lending (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA) Integrated Disclosures Rule, also known as TRID.
The workshop fee is $99. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, and assorted supervisory publications. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.
The workshops are taught by experienced OCC staff and are two of the 35 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
