Workshops for bank directors feature compliance, operational risks – and lunch

Operational and compliance risk workshops are planned Aug. 9-10 in Denver by the national bank regulator for directors of community banks and federal savings associations, the agency said Thursday.

The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) said the Aug. 9 workshop on compliance risk (“What Directors Need to Know”) focuses on critical elements of an effective compliance risk management program and emphasizes major compliance risks and critical regulations. Topics of discussion include the Bank Secrecy Act, Equal Credit Opportunity Act, and other compliance topics, the agency said.

The Aug. 10 workshop on operational risk (“Navigating Rapid Changes”) covers key risk management processes, oversight roles and governance responsibilities, fraud, risk-based audit programs, and cyber threats.

The workshop fee is $99; each event is limited to the first 35 registrants. Participants receive course materials, supervisory materials – and lunch. See the link for registration information.
