OCC slates two March directors workshops in Dallas

Two workshops on risk governance and credit risk will be held March 5 and 6 for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations in Dallas, Texas, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said Monday.

OCC said the March 5 workshop, “Risk Governance: Improving Director Effectiveness,” will provide practical information for directors to effectively measure and manage risks; it will also focus on the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry.

The March 6 workshop, “Credit Risk: Directors Can Make a Difference,” will focus on credit risk within the loan portfolio, such as identifying trends and recognizing problems; and will cover the roles of the board and management, how to stay informed of changes in credit risk, and how to effect change.

These are two of 24 workshops that will be offered nationwide, the agency said. The fee for the workshops is $99; attendance for each is limited to the first 35 registrants.
