Comptroller of the Currency Announces Community Bank Directors Workshops for 2008

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today announced its 2008 schedule of workshops for national community bank directors.

"OCC bank director workshops provide practical training to directors of national community banks," said Comptroller of the Currency John C. Dugan. "Taught by experienced bank examiners, these workshops provide useful insight that bank directors can apply every day."

The OCC offers three one-day workshops, which cost $65 each:

  • "Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank" (formerly "Understanding the OCC’s Risk Assessment Process"),
  • "Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know," and
  • "Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus,"

For $100, the OCC also offers the following two-day workshop for national bank directors with fewer than three years of experience or directors who would like to review the basics:

  • "A New Director’s Challenge: Mastering the Basics."

These workshops are offered around the country throughout the year and are geared primarily to outside directors of national community banks with assets of less than $1 billion. Management directors may also find the workshops beneficial. Space is limited to 50 participants to promote open and targeted dialogue. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, other supervisory material, a continental breakfast and lunch.
