Board of Directors

The Iowa Bankers Association board of directors provides strategic direction for the association and ensures that activities contribute to the mission of the organization.

IBA board members attend bi-monthly meetings and are elected by their respective IBA regions, first serving a two-year term on the Advocacy & Policy Committee, followed by a two-year term on the IBA board as a regional chair. There are also three at-large positions on the IBA board. Board members must be CEOs or in other positions to make decisions on their bank’s behalf.

For more information, contact John Sorensen, president & CEO, at (515) 286-4313.
