OCC Hosts San Antonio Workshop for Bank Directors

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host a workshop in San Antonio at the DoubleTree San Antonio, March 16-18, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.

The Building Blocks for Directors workshop is geared toward orienting new bank directors and still has a wide enough appeal for all community bank directors. The workshop 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.

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.
