The honor of serving on a bank’s board of directors comes with many responsibilities, expectations, and potential liabilities. Even with fewer troubled and failing banks, many boards are concerned about ongoing changes to the banking industry and economy. What about remaining independent in the midst of industry consolidation? What do regulators expect regarding compliance? What is a rural community bank board’s role with cyber security and fraud? While the industry has indeed changed, board members should be encouraged that their primary responsibility has remained the same. This webinar will address the roles of directors and officers in today’s environment. Join us for an overview of regulations related to director responsibilities and liability, the sources of primary risk, and recent trends for mitigating those risks.
