Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency recently announced its 2012 schedule of workshops to be held around the country for directors of nationally chartered community banks and federal savings associations.

"OCC workshops help directors of national banks and federal savings associations better understand their responsibilities and the risks facing their institutions in today’s dynamic banking environment," said acting Comptroller of the Currency John Walsh.

The OCC offers four different workshops: "A Director’s Challenge:  Mastering the Basics,"  "Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank," "Compliance Risk:  What Directors Need to Know," and "Credit Risk:  A Director’s Focus.  Each workshop costs $99 per participant.

Offered throughout the country, the workshops are intended for outside directors of nationally chartered community banks and federal savings associations with assets of less than $5 billion. Management directors may also find the workshops useful. Workshops are limited to 35 participants each. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, other supervisory material, and lunch.
