Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Bloomington, Minnesota
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for national community bank directors in Bloomington, Minnesota, at the Sofitel Minneapolis, June 30-July 1, 2009.
The workshops provide practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. The two workshops cover compliance risk ("Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know") and credit risk ("Credit Risk: A Director's Focus").
Workshops will be held on consecutive days and cost $65 each. Individuals may register for one or both of the workshops. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, a community bank supervision handbook, other supervisory material, a continental breakfast, and lunch. Workshops are limited to the first 50 registrants 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.
