Office of the Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Workshops in Kansas City

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Kansas City, Mo., at the Westin Kansas City at Crown Center, Nov. 5-6, 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 Bank Secrecy Act and Community Reinvestment Act, along with key elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The credit risk workshop focuses on current and emerging industry trends and news, such as allowances for loan and lease losses, and the roles of the board and management. Both workshops are taught by seasoned OCC supervision staff.

“These workshops are good for both new and experienced directors on the importance of a strong risk culture and how they can influence it,” said Richard Dixon, Assistant Deputy Comptroller in the Los Angeles office and Credit Risk Instructor. “This is key to running a safe and sound 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 Kansas City workshops are among the three remaining workshops in 2014. For information, including a complete list of available workshops, or to register for a workshop, visit or call (240) 485-1700.
