OCC Hosts New York Workshop for Bank Directors
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host a workshop in Syracuse, N.Y., at the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel, June 20-22, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC.
The Building Blocks for Directors workshop combines lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information on the roles and responsibilities of board participation for both new and experienced directors. 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, assorted supervisory publications, and a Dictionary of Banking Terms. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.
The workshop is one of 36 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
