Event Description

The Bank Leadership Institute is a five-month program created by the Iowa Bankers Association to enhance the leadership, communication and performance skills of upwardly mobile mid-to upper-level bankers. The program establishes a network of future bank leaders who understand and can respond to local and national issues impacting the banking industry.


The Design
The program includes five one-and one-half day sessions centered on developing skills through creative instruction and active participation. The number of participants is limited to 25 bankers to maintain the effectiveness of small-group instruction.

The Curriculum
The curriculum is practical, hard hitting and quality driven. Each session will explore an area of professional interest. Learning will focus on developing a solid understanding of the financial industry and the skills necessary for leadership, which students can practice immediately.

Tuition is $400 per session, and includes all training and meals. Total cost for 5 month program is $2000. You may be billed monthly, or all at once. Please note: $400 is due for each session, even in the event that a session or part of a session is missed by the applicant. Your registration is a full-tuition commitment.
