OCC Releases 2018 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 2018 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 are anchors in their neighborhoods and vital to economic growth,” said Comptroller of the Currency Joseph M. Otting. “These workshops help bank directors better understand the regulatory landscape so they can continue to serve the consumers, businesses, and communities that rely upon them.”
The OCC offers five workshops at a cost of $99 each:
- Building Blocks
- 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 course materials, supervisory publications, and lunch.
