Education Seminar

2016 Safety & Soundness
Hear what the DBO, OCC, FRB and FDIC have to say

Community Bank – Corporate Office, Pasadena

With the recent banking crisis still fresh in our minds, what the regulators are suggesting as it relates to avoiding another crisis is a chief concern of many banks. Moving towards a “dynamic” risk management procedure was a significant challenge in 2016, but what is on the horizon for 2017?

With this in mind, we will be conducting our 8th annual Safety & Soundness Workshop on September 14, 2016.

We will follow our normal template by using the CAMELS components as our guide for discussing pressing issues facing banks today. Each topic will be table set by our industry experts from the banking world, followed by comments from our banker and regulatory panel. 

On hand will be senior representatives from the OCC, FDIC, Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, and the Department of Business Oversight who will share their views with our participants.

Please join us as we dig into the most relevant issues facing our banking industry revolving around enhancing our risk management process to ensure continued success in 2017.
