The banking crisis has subsided but challenges still remain. You will serve as board members of the FDIC's San Francisco Region's interactive, one-day "board meeting" that will highlight important decisions regarding the future strategy for your institution. Your CEO will guide you through several proposed strategic initiatives. Various scenarios often contemplated by board members will be fused into corporate governance framework of planning, organizing, and controlling risk. And, of course, the planning session will acknowledge and incorporate real world issues that you deal with on a daily basis: earnings pressures, competition, cyber security risks, uncertain interest rates, and regulatory requirements.
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:
· Acquiring loans through third parties
· Acquiring another institution or branch offices
· Growing loans internally
Each scenario will be distinct and present unique risks and considerations. You and your fellow board members will determine the order in which the proposals are evaluated, 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 gain an understanding of the numerous FDIC training and communication resources available.
