This seminar is primarily intended for chief executive officers of banks and thrifts and will discuss the steps in the risk management process. The overall goal of the seminar is to encourage top management to institute systems that facilitate bank- wide risk management.

This program is being offered in response to the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery and Enforcement Act of 1989 (FIRREA) which specifies that the Council "develop and administer training seminars in risk management for its employees and the employees of insured financial institutions."
