OCC Hosts New York Workshop for Bank Directors

WASHINGTON -- The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) will host a workshop in New York City, September 28-30, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.

The “Building Block for Directors” Workshop will be held at the OCC’s Northeastern District Office at 340 Madison Avenue, Fifth Floor, New York, NY 10173. This workshop introduces new bank directors to the agency’s approach to supervision and provides experienced bank directors with a timely review of core concepts.

Building Blocks for Directors combines lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information on the roles and responsibilities of board participation. Taught by seasoned OCC supervision staff, the workshop focuses on directors’ duties and core responsibilities, discusses major laws and regulations, and increases familiarity with the examination process. Time is set aside to discuss current “hot” issues facing the industry and for directors to engage the OCC’s team of instructors in open dialogue.

The workshop fee is $99. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, assorted supervisory publications, and a Dictionary of Banking Terms. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.

The workshop is one of 35 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors. For information, including a complete list of available workshops, or to register for a workshop, visit or call (240) 485-1700.
