Directors of national community banks and federal savings associations are the target audience of two workshops slated for mid-April in Charleston, W.Va., by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), according to an agency release Thursday.
A Risk Governance workshop on April 14 will combine lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information for directors to effectively measure and manage risks, the agency said. It will also focus on the OCC’s approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry.
A Credit Risk workshop on April 15 will focus on credit risk within the loan portfolio, such as identifying trends and recognizing problems. It will also cover the roles of the board and management, how to stay informed of changes in credit risk, and how to effect change.
The workshops will be held at the Holiday Inn & Suites in Charleston. The fee to attend is $99, and workshops are limited to the first 35 registrants.
