How can the board secretary be more effective? This session will provide the answers to these questions and more.

Essential Board Reporting: Requirements, Timing, Delivery Options, Risks & Concerns
Ann Brode-Harner, Brode Consulting Services, Inc.
Clear, concise, complete information is critical to a board's decision making. Examiners closely scrutinize board packages to confirm the board is receiving necessary information. This session will cover the safety and soundness and compliance areas reviewed by examiners. Participants will receive a checklist to ensure board packets cover all policy, report, and risk assessment requirements throughout the year.
As a director, how do you review your board report packet and identify potential red flags in tandem with your fiduciary responsibility? Recognizing red flags starts with examining the list of reports and their contents, then extends to management's presentation and timeliness. Although not all red flags have a negative consequence, their appearance should alert you to ask questions that either resolve the issue, or mitigate the situation before it turns into an exception item on your next examination report. Attend this webinar and enhance your ability to recognize potential red flags.

Security Officer Reports to the Board: Fulfilling Your Annual Requirement
Barry Thompson, Thompson Consulting Group, LLC
The security officer is required to provide annual reports to the board on the implementation, administration, and effectiveness of the security program. Some institutions are satisfied if regulators don't take issue with the board report or security program. Don't wait for a lawsuit against the security officer, management, and the board (both jointly and individually) to learn the report was missing several key items.
This program will review best practices relating to training, inspections, and foreseeable events that should be reported to the board. Learn how the annual written report should be prepared and presented. Security officers and board members will garner valuable resources that can provide statistics, facts, and information to reduce liability.
