OCC Hosts Pennsylvania Workshops on Risk Governance and Credit Risk

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Harrisburg, Penn., at the Crowne Plaza Harrisburg - Hershey, July 28-29, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.

The Risk Governance workshop on July 28 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information for directors to effectively measure and manage risks. The workshop also focuses on the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry.

Revised and updated for 2015, the Credit Risk workshop on July 29 focuses on credit risk within the loan portfolio, such as identifying trends and recognizing problems. The workshop also covers the roles of the board and management, how to stay informed of changes in credit risk, and how to effect change.

The workshop fee is $99. 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 taught by experienced OCC staff and are two of the 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.
