Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Peoria, Illinois

WASHINGTON—The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for directors of nationally chartered community banks in Peoria, Illinois, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, July 27-28, 2010.

The workshops provide practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. The workshops cover risk assessment ("Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank?") on July 27, and compliance risk ("Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know") on July 28.

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. Management directors may also find the workshops beneficial.
