Events : Bank Audit & Risk Committees Conference

Bank Audit & Risk Committees Boot Camp | June 8

There is a great deal of change associated with regulatory oversight, including what needs to be reported and tracked for regulators, what’s in that reporting and how that affects a bank and its growth plan.  Designed for new committee members – and those members who need a refresher, the Bank Audit & Risk Committees Boot Camp provides a crash course in equipping participants to perform as effective members of their board’s audit or risk committee.
