OCC Hosts Credit and Compliance Risks Workshops in Minnesota
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Duluth, Minnesota, at the Holiday Inn Hotel & Suites, September 13-14, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC.
The Credit Risk workshop on September 13 focuses on credit risk within the loan portfolio, such as identifying trends and recognizing problems. The workshop also covers the roles of the board and management, how to stay informed of changes in credit risk, and how to effect change.
The Compliance Risk workshop on September 14 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, Community Reinvestment Act, and the 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 36 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
