What is enterprise risk management (ERM)? Why is it critical for good corporate governance and management of financial institutions? Why must the credit union industry move aggressively to understand and adopt this fundamentally new and comprehensive means of measuring, monitoring, and controlling risk? Financial institution directors and senior managers must have a good understanding of how to assess enterprise-wide risk in an integrated manner. Implementing such a program must begin with the board. A good program will link risk management with strategic and capital planning and enhance the institution’s ability to be competitive and to operate more efficiently and profitably.


  • Aligning the board and management on ERM
  • Identifying an institution’s current risk profile and translating that into risk appetite
  • Developing an initial framework to establish the ERM language and communication channels
  • Identifying and aligning risk managers within the organization
  • Creating and measuring key risk indicators in a manageable, replicable process
    • A "getting started” guide and ERM checklist
    • A list of outside resources, reference materials, and websites

Who Should Attend?
This informative session is designed for directors and senior and middle managers seeking to establish an enterprise risk management system or in search of a better system and tools with which to supplement their current program. Attendance verification for CE credits provided upon request.
