Directors College 2012
June 26, 2012 in Newport Beach

Corporate Governance & Consumer Protection

CBA’s Directors College has become an established part of director and senior bank officer  education and development at a time when the role and performance of boards is under intense scrutiny.  Hear directly from senior regulators at the FDIC, FRB, OCC & CFPB on their expectations for 2012!

The theme of this year’s program, “Corporate Governance & Consumer Protection”, explores in depth the heightened scrutiny surrounding consumer protection from the examiners’ perspective, and the role of the board to ensure effective governance in this area.  

We will begin the day with a discussion on hot topics and best practices in the consumer protection arena. Our panel of senior regulators from the FDIC, FRB, OCC, and CFPB will share information on their compliance priorities, trends and issues they’re seeing in the industry. This will be followed by a look at our challenging economy and how banking is likely to be impacted.

In the afternoon, the FDIC will provide some insights into the current examination process and then give you the unique opportunity to take on the roll of an examiner! You will go through a mock compliance examination and be responsible for actually assigning the Consumer Compliance Rating and making recommendations.
