OCC Hosts New Orleans Workshop for Bank Directors
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host a workshop in New Orleans at the Hampton Inn and Suites New Orleans, November 16-18, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.
The Building Blocks for Directors workshop introduces new bank directors to the OCC’s approach to supervision and provides experienced bank directors with a review of core concepts.
The workshop combines lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information on the roles and responsibilities of board participation. Taught by seasoned OCC supervision staff, the workshop focuses on directors’ duties and core responsibilities, discusses major laws and regulations, and increases familiarity with the examination process.
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 workshop is one of 35 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
