Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Workshops in Richmond
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Richmond, Va., at the Omni Richmond Hotel, March 25-26, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.
The “Compliance Risk” and “Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus” workshops are designed exclusively for directors of institutions supervised by the OCC. The compliance risk workshop focuses on major compliance risks and consumer protection regulations, such as the Qualified Mortgage Rule and Bank Secrecy Act, along with key elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The credit risk workshop focuses on the roles of the board and bank management, current events, emerging industry trends, and a range of credit issues, from structuring credit to collections. Both workshops are taught by experienced OCC supervision staff.
“The focus of these workshops is to help community bank directors make informed decisions when overseeing compliance and credit risks,” said Jeff King, Credit Risk Instructor and Assistant Deputy Comptroller at the Roanoke, Va., field office. “By understanding our expectations as examiners, bank directors will have better insight in to what should be considered when overseeing risks at their institution.”
The fee is $99 for each workshop. 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 among 33 being offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
