Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Dallas, Texas
WASHINGTON -- The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host a workshop for new national community bank directors in Dallas at the Westin Park Central, October 5-7, 2009.
The workshop provides practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. Entitled, "A New Director's Challenge: Mastering the Basics," the workshop is geared primarily to directors of national community banks with assets of less than $1 billion who have fewer than three years of experience or longer tenured directors who would like to review the fundamental requirements of their position.
The workshop costs $100. 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.
