Community Bankers Association of Illinois - The Community Bankers School: Your Journey UP Begins Here

Illinois Wesleyan University, Bloomington Illinois

July 14-19, 2019


Have you wondered what makes some community bankers more successful than others? Is it intelligence, talent or dedication? Is it that one person seeks success and the other doesn't? I believe the difference lies in what each person knows and how he or she makes use of that knowledge.

That is why I am writing to you about The Community Bankers School. The purpose of this school is to impart knowledge participants can use every day in community banking. The Community Bankers School (CBS) is available to community bankers nationwide, making it The School for community bankers in the country. In addition, CBS is sponsored by ten state community-banking associations.


You see, CBS is unique. A subcommittee annually evaluates faculty, curriculum and student comments to enhance the value of CBS. Each year, the faculty has been improved and the curriculum updated to include timely topics and the latest learning techniques. CBS is conducted in the state-of-the-art facilities of Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, IL.


In looking at the alumni list, I see that more than 1,000 people have graduated from this school during the last 30 years. More than 90 percent of attendees each year have evaluated it as “excellent” or “very good.” The vast majority of graduates have been promoted or taken on new responsibilities at their banks. More than 40 individuals are now bank presidents and 15 are outside directors — a track record that proves knowledge makes the difference.


Please put my statement to the test by enrolling one of your associates in Class I of the Community Bankers School. I guarantee that this individual will return to the bank more motivated and better equipped to contribute to the overall success of your community bank. Should CBS not measure up to your expectations, you may contact me within two weeks of the student's return and the full tuition will be refunded to your bank!


Enroll a candidate now! It's a no-risk investment in your community bank's success.
