Program Overview: 

Printable Brochure

Director education is an important best practice for bank and thrift directors, and bank regulatory agencies look for evidence of director training in the examination process. Formal director education activities are even mandatory in some states. Practical director education can help clarify misconceptions, lead to a better understanding of the complex role and responsibilities of financial institution directors in the current banking environment, result in a reduced risk profile for the institution, potentially reduced insurance expenses, and ultimately a reduced likelihood of successful attacks on the institution and its board. This Director Boot Camp provides the right insight and understanding for your directors based on actual industry examples and experience.
