Where: Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Vermont
When: See 2012 Schedule
Subject: Boston Area Office: New England Directors and Trustees College Program

The Directors and Trustees College is an interactive one-day seminar to provide ongoing education to bank directors and trustees on current topics and various elements of bank supervision.  It is designed to help directors and trustees, both new and experienced, stay abreast of the ever-changing regulatory and economic environment.  Now more than ever, directors and trustees are under constant pressure to remain current in their knowledge of the banking industry and the segment their institution serves.  There must also be a basic understanding of what issues are currently impacting their institution's financial performance and competitive environment.

This program is offered in partnership with the State Trade Associations. Each session is limited to approximately 100 attendees to foster active participation.  Registration information can be found on the Associations' respective websites, which can be linked to directly (see schedule below).  The program has been very well received for the almost ten years it has been conducted.

The program includes a general session on current topics effecting community banks, a luncheon presentation on economic and banking conditions, and a choice of three interactive breakout sessions.  There are six breakout session topics offered, and the attendee can tailor the seminar to their own individual needs by registering in advance for those topics of most interest.

2012 breakout sessions:

  • Managing Interest Rate Risk in Today’s Environment
  • Compliance Management System:  Ensure Your Bank meets Regulatory Standards
  • Community Banking
  • Information Technology
  • Monitoring Your Problem Loan Portfolio
  • Guidance for New Directors
