2019 Essentials of Banking

Apr 24, 2019
IBA Center for Professional Development
8425 Woodfield Crossing Blvd, Suite 155E
Program Overview: 

The Indiana Bankers Association (IBA) is pleased to present “Banking Essentials”, four, one-day seminars offered at the IBA Center for Professional Development in Indianapolis. A must for the newer community bank employee, this series is designed to provide complete knowledge of banking principles and operations. It is also geared toward veteran employees as a refresher course.

This popular program also boasts a staff of instructors who are not only popular IBA speakers but also some of the best presenters in the banking field including David Kemp, Dianne Barton, and Jim Rechel.

While it is recommended that the individual attend all four sessions of the series to receive an entire overview of banking, each session’s material stands alone; one session is not a prerequisite for another. From year to year, IBA plans to offer the same series beginning with any session. However, if you want your staff to learn about the material presented in a particular session, the program provides a thorough education and may be attended as a stand-alone class.

Series registrants cannot carry over funds to the next year’s four-seminar sequence. If you cannot attend one of the sessions, another individual from the bank may be sent as a replacement or that session's manual will be sent and funds will be forfeited.


More information to come!

Who Should Attend
Any and all bank staff with up to five years’ experience and/or veteran employees who are looking for a refresher course.


Dianne Barton is the Founder and President of PerformanceSolutions, Inc. As a former banker, her services, which include a broad scope including strategic planning, leadership & management development, regulatory and compliance implementations, retail growth strategies, and sales & service culture development, are recognized as “real world   banking solutions”.

Dianne’s training programs are designed to “close the gap” between banks’ needs and employees’ skills.  A philosophy of experiential learning and participant involvement in training led to the development of her “TELL-SHOW-DO” training method that is skill based rather than theory based. The training limits lecture discussions to a maximum of 7-9 minutes, relying on an active, high energy, “hands on” approach by the participants.
