OCC Hosts Credit Risk Workshop in Texas, Offers First Operational Risk Workshop

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Corpus Christi, Texas, at the Omni Corpus Christi Hotel, May 17-18, including its first workshop on operational risk.

The Credit Risk workshop on May 17 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 Operational Risk workshop on May 18 focuses on the key components of operational risk—people, processes and systems. The workshop also covers governance, third-party risk, vendor management, and cybersecurity. It is the first of six Operational Risk workshops scheduled for 2016.

The workshop fee is $99 and open to directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC. 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 36 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.
