Institution Directors Handbook from CCH Showcases Best Practices For Challenging Role
(RIVERWOODS, ILL., July 7, 1999) Being the
director of any company is a major responsibility, but those who sit on the boards of
banks and other financial institutions have extra concerns, face more scrutiny and need
additional guidance, according to CCH INCORPORATED (CCH), a leading provider of
business and regulatory law information. To give them the background they need to fulfill
their duties and avoid potentially serious liabilities, CCH has published the Financial
Institutions Directors Handbook by Dr. Douglas V. Austin, as a practical guide
for board members.
The Handbook not only shows how directors can steer
clear of the dangers of their complex and highly regulated industry, but more importantly
how they can bring best industry practices to their institutions governance. It
thoroughly explores topics such as the duties and responsibilities of directors, strategic
planning, lenders liability, commercial lending, examinations and audits, mergers
and shareholder relations.
Users of the Handbook will find clear, incisive,
pragmatic advice accompanied by checklists, tips and action items to ensure their
effectiveness in their crucial roles.
