Mark Cox, assistant vice president of Citizens Bank of Ada, and Tommy Vass, vice president/compliance officer at Vision Bank, recently completed the Oklahoma Bankers Association (OBA) Compliance School in Stillwater.

Cox and Vass were among 43 graduates of the school, which was held in August at Oklahoma State University.

The OBA Compliance School, conducted annually, trains bank employees to deal with the many laws and regulations that affect bank lending and deposit functions. The school is designed to provide an extensive body of knowledge and information on consumer compliance, which can contribute to the development of compliance officers. Students return to their banks equipped to deal with compliance regulations that impact lending practices and deposit functions as well as other related federal and state laws and regulations.

The OBA conducts more than 70 educational programs and seminars each year for the state banking community. The association represents approximately 280 banks across the state, supporting the industry with a broad array of services including government relations, education, fraud training, legal services and communications.
