Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Shreveport, Louisiana
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for directors of nationally chartered community banks in Shreveport, Louisiana, at the Hilton Shreveport, April 20-21, 2010.
The workshops provide practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. The workshops cover compliance risk (“Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know”) on April 20, and credit risk (“Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus”) on April 21.
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 35 registrants and are geared primarily to outside directors of national community banks with assets of less than $1 billion.
