One of the greatest investments employers can make is in the continued education of their employees. Seminars, workshops, conferences, and schools not only provide professionals with an updated and contemporary framework to make better judgments and more informed decisions, but also assist in developing a resourceful network of peer bankers.

The IBA Foundation, Inc. prides itself on providing members with one of the best nonprofit banker education programs in the country. Featured in this brochure is the highly acclaimed 2019 Consumer Lending School, which addresses the most immediate and relevant training needs of the financial industry.

We know that bankers demand a strong return on education, “ROE,” in terms of dollars, time, and effort spent. You can count on this school to provide:

  • Practical, hands-on curriculum designed for learning by doing and for easy application at the bank;
  • Small class size to increase networking opportunities and personalized instruction; 
  • A school designed and governed by bankers and taught by experienced bankers and consultants; and
  • Reasonable enrollment fees and an academic atmosphere conducive to a stimulating learning experience.

This two-day school is designed to prepare consumer lenders to meet two primary challenges. The first challenge is to originate loans to qualified consumer and residential borrowers and minimize collection problems and loan losses. The second challenge is to be in compliance at all times with ever-changing fair lending regulations.

Day One

  • Define Consumer Lending
  • Review Consumer, Personal and Household Loan Purposes
  • Discuss the concept of gathering “complete” information from Applicants
  • Review the steps in Evaluating the Applicant Credit Information
  • Making the “best” loan decision
  • Review the basics of Consumer Loan Documentation
  • Discuss Consumer Loan Collection Issues
  • Review the following Federal and State Lending Regulations:
    • Equal Credit Opportunity Act as implemented by Regulation B
    • Regulation P (Privacy)
    • Truth-in-Lending Act as implemented by Regulation Z
    • The Fair Credit Reporting Act
    • USA PATRIOT ACT—Customer Identification Program Requirements

The instructor for the 2019 Consumer Lending School represents a wealth of lending experience and the ability to communicate this  experience in an effective and enjoyable manner. Curriculum design, case study development, and lead instruction will be provided by John Cochran. In his banking career which spans over 35 years, he has served in carious lending and senior management positions. John established Cochran Associates LLC in 2000 to provide bank training and consulting services. To date, he has presented lending seminars for many state banking associations and annually participates in eight commercial lending schools as a principal instructor or sole presenter. John is the lead faculty member of the Indiana Bankers Association’s Commercial Lending School.
