The Office of the Comptroller (OCC) announced its 2008 schedule of workshops for national community bank directors. The workshops are offered throughout the United States and are focused on meeting the needs of outside directors of national community banks with assets of less than $1 billion. Space in each workshop is limited to 50 participants.

The titles of the three one-day workshops are as follows: “Directors: Where is the Risk in Your Bank”; “Compliance Risk: What Directors Need to Know”; and “Credit Risk: A Director’s Focus.” In addition, the OCC will host a two day workshop following the completion of the other three topics for national bank directors with fewer than three years of experience or for directors who would like to review important information. That seminar is entitled “A New Director’s Challenge: Mastering the Basics.”
