OCC Hosts New Jersey Workshops on Risk Governance and Credit Risk
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Morristown, N.J., at the Hyatt Morristown at Headquarters Plaza, March 10-11, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations.
The Risk Governance workshop on March 10 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information for directors to effectively measure and manage risks. The workshop also focuses on the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry.
Revised and updated for 2015, the Credit Risk workshop on March 11 focuses on credit risk within the loan portfolio, such as identifying trends and recognizing problems. The workshop also covers the roles of the board and management, how to stay informed of changes in credit risk, and how to effect change.
The workshop fee is $99. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, assorted supervisory publications, and a Dictionary of Banking Terms. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.
The workshops are taught by experienced OCC staff and are two of the 35 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
