ABA SLATES 2010 TELEPHONE SEMINAR SCHEDULE
ABA’s America’s Community Bankers Council, working in conjunction with ABA Bank Directors Briefing newsletter, has announced a series of four seminars for bank directors. Mark your calendars now: March 24; June 23; Sept. 22; and Nov. 17. Here’s the lineup:
Director Focus: Your Bank and Real Estate Lending
March 24; Program 16365
“They’re not making more of it”—but lending on it still takes skill, judgment, and sound policies. Lending on real estate—both commercial and residential—came to dominate the portfolios of many community banks. What role must the board take in shaping the bank’s future real estate lending activity?
Washington Update for Bank Directors
June 23; Program 16366
Washington affairs defy predictions. But one forecast you can bet on: Congress and the regulators plan many changes for banks of all sizes and types. An overview of the “mood” of the nation’s capital will be followed by specifics in priority areas.
Effective Key Committees: Audit, ALCO, and Compensation
Sept. 22; Program 16367
Boardrooms are burning more energy these days, in every sense. All directors face greater challenges today. But those who serve on the Audit, Asset-Liability Management, and Compensation Committees have watched their duties grow geometrically. Experts in these disciplines will review what’s changed, and how committee members can cope.
The New Basics of Bank Accounting: Better Understanding of Your Bank’s Financial Statements and Board Reports
Nov.17; Program 16368
Good directorship can’t happen without a good grasp of the numbers. Methods—and preferences—for measuring bank performance continue to evolve. Understanding key measures grows more critical than ever, as boards take oversight to the next level. Tuning in—to meaningful numbers—and tuning out “noise”—that makes the difference between leaders and losers.
All sessions are on Wednesdays, 2:00 p.m.-3:30 p.m. ET. Further details and registration information http://www.aba.com/Solutions/BankDirectors.htm
