Webinar: A Year in the Life of a Compliance Officer
Thursday, January 06, 2022, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Do you see your life laid out before you? If you’re a compliance officer, this webinar could be your roadmap. Compliance officers must stay abreast of and track an overabundance of policies, procedures, regulations, and deadlines. This webinar is the perfect onramp to the tools, tips, and sample calendars compliance officers need to steer your institution in the right direction.


  • Use checklists to track your responsibilities
  • Implement tracking methods for everything from policy approvals to exam findings
  • Establish an effective training program
  • Effectively report compliance matters to the board
  • Understand the tools and resources available to you


Compliance officers’ duties are broad. They must manage regulatory compliance dates (that can change on short notice), update policies and procedures to reflect new requirements, provide relevant information to staff, and stay informed about the next change, advisory, or guidance to be issued. In addition, they manage and implement numerous regulations, guidance, and monitoring reports – all of which are designed to avoid consumer harm and compliance violations for their financial institution. Since they often wear many hats, it’s easy for a monthly review or annual report to slip through the cracks. This program will journey through a year in the life of a compliance officer, including required training, risk assessments, reviews, reports, and audits. Useful tools and a sample annual calendar for compliance officers will be provided.


This informative session will benefit compliance officers, compliance personnel, and internal auditors.


  • Sample compliance officer job description
  • Sample compliance council charter
  • Sample policy review schedule
  • Board and employee training documentation record
  • Employee training log
  • Interactive quiz
