Education Seminar

FDIC Community Bankers Workshop
The L.A. Hotel Downtown (Hyatt)

Bank directors, senior management, managers and line personnel, especially those in the IT, BSA/AML, or Consumer Protection/Compliance Management Systems areas should not miss this informative seminar.

California Bankers Association and the FDIC are committed to educating bankers on emerging regulatory issues as well as providing a regulatory insight on bank examination topics. This workshop will focus on Corporate Governance, Information Technology, Bank Secrecy Act/AML, and Consumer Protection/Compliance Management Systems.

In the morning, we will cover Corporate Governance from both an RMS and DCP perspective with an emphasis on planning, monitoring, risk assessment and other issues of concern to bank directors and senior management.   We will continue with a lunchtime Economic Presentation.

In the afternoon, we will provide three concurrent breakout sessions covering IT, BSA, and CMS.  These sessions will drill down further into the three topics, with a focus on the needs of line personnel, specialty managers, and Directors that want more knowledge or have specific committee responsibilities.


The session will run from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., with breakfast and registration beginning at 7:30 a.m. and lunch presentation at 11:30am.
