OCC Hosts Compliance and Operational Risk Workshops in Virginia

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) will host two workshops in Williamsburg, Va., at the DoubleTree Hotel Williamsburg, September 24 and 25, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC.

The Compliance Risk workshop on September 24 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises on the critical elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The workshop also focuses on major compliance risks and critical regulations. Topics of discussion include the Bank Secrecy Act, Flood Disaster Protection Act, Fair Lending, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, Community Reinvestment Act, and other compliance hot topics.

The Operational Risk workshop on September 25 focuses on the key components of operational risk—people, processes, and systems. The workshop also covers governance, third-party risk, vendor management, internal fraud, and cybersecurity.

The workshop fee is $99 and open to directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC. Participants receive course materials, assorted supervisory publications, and lunch. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.

The workshops are taught by experienced OCC staff and are two of the 24 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors. To register for this workshop, visit www.occ.gov/occworkshops.
