OCC schedules July director workshops on credit, operational risks

Two workshops – on credit and operational risk – will be held July 12-13 in Pittsburgh, sponsored by the regulator of national banks, the agency said Tuesday.

In a release, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said the workshops, for directors of community banks and federal savings associations of OCC-supervised institutions, cost $99 to attend and are limited each to the first 35 registrants. The fee covers materials and lunch, the OCC said.

The credit risk workshop will be held on July 12 and focuses on how directors can make a difference, specifically on the roles of the board and management, credit risk within the loan portfolio, and how to stay informed of changes in credit risk.

The operational risk workshop will be held July 13 and focuses on navigating rapid changes by covering key risk management processes, oversight roles and governance responsibilities, fraud, risk-based audit programs, and cyber threats.
