The future of community banking depends upon a new generation of bankers. These bankers will need to be progressive, technology-smart, legislatively-informed, community-minded, and knowledgeable of what their competition is doing. In addition, our future bankers must become experts at marketing themselves, as well as their bank products and services. And they must become leaders, not only among their industry peers, but in their communities as well.

The ICBND Emerging Leaders Development Program prepares today’s independent bank leaders with the necessary skills to ensure bank profitability. The Emerging Leaders Development Program provides its members the opportunity to develop lifetime business relationships with the best and brightest people in community banking across North Dakota. From networking with peers to political activism, members have the opportunity to help ensure the future of the North Dakota community banking industry.

Members will meet for one-day training sessions in both the winter/spring and the fall. They will also have the opportunity to attend the Emerging Leaders Summer Conference and the ICBND Annual Convention in August. Register today to join!
