OCC Releases 2016 Schedule of Workshops for Directors of National Community Banks and Federal Savings Associations
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today announced its 2016 schedule of workshops for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.
The OCC examiner-led workshops provide practical training and guidance to directors of national community banks and federal savings associations to support the safe and sound operation of community-based financial institutions.
“Community banks and savings associations play a critical role in meeting the banking needs of consumers and small businesses throughout the country,” said Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry. “Bank directors have the important job of overseeing their financial institution effectively while fostering an environment that allows their financial institution to prosper. These workshops will assist bank directors in understanding the regulatory issues and emerging risks that affect their institutions.”
The OCC offers five workshops at a cost of $99 each:
- Building Blocks for Directors
- Risk Governance
- Compliance Risk
- Credit Risk
- Operational Risk
The OCC offers the workshops nationwide to outside directors of national community banks and federal savings associations. Management directors may also find the workshops beneficial.
Workshops are limited to 35 participants. Attendees will receive pre-course reading and course materials, supervisory publications, and lunch.
