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!

Summer Leadership Conference: June 6-7, 2019

Fireside Inn & Suites, Devils Lake, ND

The ICBND Emerging Leaders Development Program Summer Leadership Conference is one of our most anticipated events each year. You can expect inspiring keynote speakers and two days of opportunities to connect and interact with your peers. This event is the ideal setting for forming personal and professional relationships with individuals in the industry who are at similar points in their lives and careers.

If you’re on the fence about registering this year, you should consider what others have said about past conferences:

  • You can network and connect with future leaders of our industry, not to mention the sessions and programming are geared toward our professional and personal growth
  •  I would recommend every developing community banker attend the ELDG Conference. It’s the one event where you can strengthen your professional career and network with like-minded bankers.
  •  I have made some of the best professional friends through my involvement in the Emerging Leaders Development Group. This conference allows me to bounce ideas or ask questions of my trusted banker friends. Plus this group is so much fun to be around!

Even if you are not a member of the Emerging Leaders Development Group, you are welcome to register and join this great group for an amazing session!

All attendees will receive a copy of speaker Jim Bouchard's book "The Sensei Leader" .  The books have been sponsored by Eide Bailly. Eide Bailly logo

10:45 - 11:00 AM BREAK

11:00 AM - 12:30 PM Intangible It with Jack Stahlmann

Every movie star has an intangible quality that you can’t quite put your finger on...or can you? By sharing the humorous and humbling tales of his Tinseltown adventures, Jack examines the “it” factor that makes certain actors stars in Hollywood and shares how you can go from a bit player to a superstar in your profession. In this session you will: 
  •  Learn effective strategies to make sure your message lands with difficult people...not that you have to deal with any of those!
  •  Discover your personal brand from an outside perspective and learn to leverage it for professional benefit
  •  Develop a new outlook on change through Jack’s “Just One Thing” mantra: shifting one small thing in your life at a time and not viewing changes as a full life overhaul
  •  Understand how to bottle the “it” factor that movie stars possess and follow the simple steps to bring that element to every event in your life.

As a professional speaker Jack Stahlmann has inspired and educated hundreds of organizations. Jack’s entertaining and informative presentations are built around his experiences in Los Angeles as an actor, producer, director...and of course, a waiter. In 2002, he launched his own production company which created several films that enjoyed international success. And as an actor his shining moment came in a co-star role on the CBS drama Cold Case where he played a wimpy park ranger. He also appeared on Days of Our Lives and several regional commercials. He has been a contributor to The Huffington Post where he muses about the business lessons we can learn from pop culture. Jack currently resides in St. Paul, MN.
