2016 Directors' College Program - San Francisco Region

You are Invited to a Strategic Planning Retreat

Your bank’s future prospects are positive, and you are considering further growth.  But the question is, “How?”  During the San Francisco Region’s interactive one-day “board retreat,” you will consider the future strategy for your institution.  You will be guided through three potential strategic options for your institution:

  • Growing loans internally
  • Acquiring loans through third parties
  • Purchasing another institution or branch offices

Each scenario will be distinct and present unique risks and considerations.  You and your fellow board members will discuss the proposals with “bank management,” share your thoughts and experiences, and ultimately determine which (if any) strategies to implement.

Throughout the day, various presenters will identify risk management and compliance expectations and concerns associated with each of the strategic options.  The presenters will incorporate lessons learned from prior banking crises, emphasize relevant strategic and succession planning considerations, discuss emerging credit risks, and highlight “Warning Signs” of which directors should be mindful.

The day will also include a discussion of local economic conditions and a chance to ask questions of our regulatory panel of experts.  Additionally, you will also gain an understanding of the numerous FDIC training and communication resources available.
