Defining Your Risk Appetite and Preventative KRIs
Randy Marsicano, Professional Services Senior Manager, WolfPAC Integrated Risk Management
Participants will work through a personalized exercise to define their own risk appetite, what their risk indicators are, and what KRI’s to monitor in their risk appetite statement. Participants will then apply that methodology to 2 of the 12 risk areas that bankers would be most comfortable speaking about with their peers. This methodology can then be taken back and used for the remaining areas at their bank.

The Art of Risk Communication: From Your Most Junior Associate to the Chairman of the Board
Randy Marsicano, Professional Services Senior Manager, WolfPAC Integrated Risk Management
Communication of risk management activities and results becomes more and more challenging as the nature and volume of board reporting requirements expand.  How do you know what to communicate, how much to communicate, and who to communicate it to?  In this session, risk managers will learn best practices for effectively communicating to every level within the Bank, as well as creating appropriate meeting agendas for Risk Management Committees (Management) and the Board.

Creating a Proactive Risk Culture: A Panel & Peer Session
Michael Cohn, Director, WolfPAC Solutions Group
Community banks are introducing new products and services while they must also adapt to the ever-changing regulatory requirements and demands.  A responsive ERM program will protect the business during growth and turbulent economic periods.  Attendees of this session will learn from 2 progressive risk officers how they built their ERM program, and how to address emerging risks before they become serious threats.  They will gain guidance on effective practices and trends, and then hear from regulators in agency specific roundtables how the examination expectations will align with the ERM programs
