OCC offers two directors workshops in mid-March, held in D.C.

Workshops on risk governance and compliance risk are slated March 17 and 18 in Washington, D.C., for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations (FSAs), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) announced Tuesday.

The Risk Governance workshop on March 17 will focus on how to effectively measure and manage risks; the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision; and major risks in the financial industry. The Compliance Risk workshop, slated March 18, will focus on the critical elements of an effective compliance risk management program; major compliance risks; and critical regulations. Topics of discussion March 18 include the Bank Secrecy Act, Flood Disaster Protection Act, Fair Lending, Home Mortgage Disclosure Act, Community Reinvestment Act, and other compliance hot topics, the agency said.

The workshop fee is $99 and open to directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC. Each workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.

The agency on Monday also announced two workshops scheduled early in March on credit and operational risks, to be held in New Orleans. In all, 30 workshops are scheduled for 2020, the OCC said.
