Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Miami
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for directors of nationally chartered community banks in Miami, at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables, January 12-13, 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 January 12, and compliance risk (“Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know”) on January 13.
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.
