Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Pittsburgh
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for directors of nationally chartered community banks in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at the Hilton Pittsburgh Hotel, November 16-17, 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 November 16, and credit risk (“Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus”) on November 17.
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.
