Comptroller of the Currency Hosts Community Bank Directors Workshops in Houston, Texas
WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host workshops for national community bank directors at the St. Regis Hotel, Houston, Texas, July 17-18.
The workshops provide practical information that expands bank directors' skills and understanding of issues facing their banks. The two workshops cover compliance risk ("Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know," July 17) and credit risk ("Credit Risk: A Director's Focus," July 18).
Workshops will be held on consecutive days and cost $65 each. Individuals may register for one or both workshops. Attendees receive a pre-course reading package, course materials, an OCC telephone seminar CD, other appropriate supervisory materials, a continental breakfast and lunch. Workshops are limited to the first 50 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 workshop beneficial.
