Risk governance and credit risk subject for two successive workshops from OCC next month

Improving bank director effectiveness in risk governance and credit risk will be the subject of two workshops planned for next month in Kansas City, the regulator of national banks said Tuesday.

The workshops, scheduled by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) for June 28 and 29, the agency said, will cover the two topics in successive days. On June 28, the agency said, the risk governance workshop will combine lectures, discussion, and exercises to provide practical information for directors to “effectively identify, measure, monitor and control risks.” OCC said the workshop also focuses on its approach to risk-based supervision and major risks in the financial industry.

The June 29 workshop on credit risk, OCC said, covers the roles of the board and management, credit risk within the loan portfolio, and how directors and management may stay informed of changes in credit risk.

Each workshop fee is $99 and limited to the first 35 registrants; participants receive course materials, supervisory materials, and lunch, the agency said. Registration for both workshops may be accomplished online.
