Risk is focus of two October workshops for bank, savings association directors

How to measure and manage risks will be discussed during one of two upcoming October workshops in Chicago hosted by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) for directors of national banks and federal savings associations, the agency said Thursday.

A “Risk Governance: Improving Director Effectiveness” workshop Oct. 1 is aimed at providing 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 agency said.

The “Credit Risk: Directors Can Make a Difference” workshop Oct. 2 focuses on credit risk within the loan portfolio, such as identifying trends and recognizing problems. The roles of the board and management, how to stay informed of changes in credit risk, and how to effect change will also be covered.

Both workshops will be held at the OCC Central District Office in Chicago. The workshop fee is $99; each workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.
