OCC Hosts Credit Risk and Operational Risk Workshops in Phoenix
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops at the Crowne Plaza Phoenix Airport in Phoenix, Ariz., April 11-12, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC.
The Credit Risk workshop on April 11 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 Operational Risk workshop on April 12 focuses on the key components of operational risk—people, processes and systems. The workshop also covers governance, third-party risk, vendor management, and cybersecurity.
The workshop fee is $99 and open to directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC. 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.
