Comptroller of the Currency Announces Community Bank Directors Workshops for 2007
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency today announced its schedule of workshops for national community bank directors.
"Taught by seasoned OCC examiners, these workshops give practical training and guidance to directors of national community banks that they can rely on," said Comptroller of the Currency John C. Dugan.
This year the OCC has added a workshop for community bank directors entitled "A New Director's Challenge: Mastering the Basics." This two-day program, scheduled in Washington D.C., April 16-18, is geared primarily to directors with less than three years of experience. The workshop should be particularly valuable to directors of new national banks, many of whom are also new to the industry. However, longer tenured directors who would like to review the fundamental requirements of their position may also find the workshop useful.
Additionally, the OCC continues to offer three one-day workshops:
These workshops are offered around the country throughout the year and are geared primarily to outside directors of national community banks with assets of less than $1 billion. Management directors may also find the workshop beneficial. Space is limited to 50 participants to promote open and targeted dialogue. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, other supervisory material, a continental breakfast and lunch.
