Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in San Antonio
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for national community bank directors at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, San Antonio, September 16-18, 2008.
The workshops provide practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. The three workshops cover risk assessment ("Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank"), compliance risk ("Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know"), and credit risk ("Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus").
Workshops will be held on consecutive days and cost $65 each. Individuals may register for one, two, or all three of the workshops. Attendees receive pre-course reading and course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, a community bank supervision handbook, other supervisory material, a continental breakfast and lunch. Workshops are limited to the first 50 registrants 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.
