OCC Releases 2021 Schedule of Virtual Bank Director Workshops

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) today announced its 2021 schedule of free, virtual workshops for board of directors of national 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 in a virtual learning environment to support the safe and sound operation of community-based financial institutions.

“Community banks are fundamental to meeting the financial services needs of consumers and small businesses throughout the country,” said Acting Comptroller of the Currency Brian P. Brooks. “The OCC's Bank Director Workshops are uniquely tailored to help bank directors understand the regulatory environment, their roles and responsibilities, and risks facing the industry so their institutions can continue to be a source of strength for economic opportunity and community development.”

The OCC offers four virtual workshops:

  • Building Blocks: Keys to Success for Directors and Senior Management
  • Risk Governance: Improving Director Effectiveness
  • Credit Risk: Directors Can Make a Difference
  • Operational Risk: Navigating Rapid Changes
