Director’s Training Certificate Series

Register Now

The Directors Training Certificate Series is designed to educate the board of directors about significant regulatory requirements and critical bank practices and policies. Recognizing that the Board only needs a broad understanding of many topics, each webinar session is geared toward that goal, to avoid burdening them with unnecessary detail. The objective is to ensure your board has enough of the right information to make informed decisions about your institution's business and to meet regulatory and legal obligations.

The Series is appropriate for seasoned directors and those who are new board members. Since most board members have a defined amount of time to concentrate on their responsibilities and obligations, we selected what we believe are the core issues board members must know about. The sessions address:

  1. Bank Secrecy Act Essentials
  2. What Directors Need to Know about Fair Lending
  3. Insider Transactions for Directors
  4. Credit Risk Best Practices
  5. Managing Interest Rate Risk
  6. What Directors Need to Know about Commercial Real Estate (CRE) Risk
  7. Industry M&A Updates
  8. Corporate Governance Matters
  9. Reducing Risk From Phishing and Malware
  10. Strategic Risk Management
  11. Branch Acquisition
  12. Compliance Update
  13. CRE Stress Testing and Market Update for BOD

Updates and new sessions will be added during your annual subscription, as needed, depending on regulatory, legal, and other influences on the banking industry. It is recommended that directors complete the full series in an expedient time frame so that you have available, credible documentation for your regulator that the board members have been trained. Annual training is recommended and required for certain topics.
