OCC Releases 2017 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 2017 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.
“The vitality of community banks and savings associations is essential to the consumers they serve and the strength of the financial system,” said Comptroller of the Currency Thomas J. Curry. “Bank directors have a central role in ensuring the health of their financial institutions. These workshops help bank directors understand regulatory issues and expectations, along with emerging risks that may affect their institution.”
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.
