OCC Hosts Compliance and Operational Risk Workshops in Arkansas

WASHINGTON — The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency will host two workshops in Little Rock, Ark., at the Wyndham Riverfront Little Rock, Nov. 15-16, for directors of national community banks and federal savings associations supervised by the OCC.

The Compliance Risk workshop on Nov. 15 combines lectures, discussion, and exercises on the critical elements of an effective compliance risk management program. The workshop also focuses on major compliance risks and critical regulations. Topics of discussion include the Bank Secrecy Act, Community Reinvestment Act, and the Truth-in-Lending (TILA) and the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act of 1974 (RESPA) Integrated Disclosures Rule, also known as TRID.

The Operational Risk workshop on Nov. 16 focuses on the key components of operational risk—people, processes and systems. The workshop also covers governance, third-party risk, vendor management, and cybersecurity. This is the last Operational Risk workshop for 2016.

The workshop fee is $99. Participants receive a pre-workshop reading package and course materials, and assorted supervisory publications. The workshop is limited to the first 35 registrants.

The workshops are taught by experienced OCC staff and are two of the 36 offered nationwide to enhance and expand the skills of national community bank and federal savings association directors.
