Risk Officer Series Webinar: Risk Management Officer: Expectations & Responsibilities
Wednesday, November 18, 2020, 03:00pm - 04:30pm

Risk management officers are credit unions’ internal watchdogs. Through constant vigilance and enterprise risk management (ERM) programs, they guard against compliance risks, conduct risk assessments, ensure monitoring and testing are conducted, etc. Join us to learn more about their role, responsibility, and reach.


  • Clearly explain, identify, and document inherent and residual risks
  • Use risk assessments as a roadmap for scheduling monitoring processes, internal and external audits, and staff training
  • Define components of an enterprise risk management (ERM) program
  • Develop risk reporting that includes emerging trends and developments tailored to the relevant audience
  • Expand communication channels to gather risk data, confirm effectiveness of controls, and engender a risk culture throughout the institution


Risk management officers fulfill a robust role. They must understand the institution’s compliance risks, confirm that appropriate monitoring and testing are conducted, and ensure that both internal and external changes are properly managed. A working knowledge of the numerous compliance regulations is essential to ensure that the institution is generating compliant documents. In addition, communication with the board, management, and staff is a critical element of success. This webinar will provide the tools and best practices necessary to manage and fulfill the expectations and responsibilities of being a risk management officer.


This informative session is directed to risk management officers, chief risk officers, compliance risk officers, internal auditors, and anyone responsible for risk management.
