Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Peoria, Illinois

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for directors of nationally chartered community banks in Peoria, Illinois, at the Embassy Suites Hotel, July 27-28, 2010.

The workshops provide practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks.  The workshops cover risk assessment (“Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank?”) on July 27, and compliance risk (“Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know”) on July 28.

Workshops will be held on consecutive days and cost $65 each.  Individuals may register for one or both 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 35 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 workshops beneficial.
