2019 Essentials of Banking
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.

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 President of Performance Solutions, Inc. (PSI), a training and consulting company that specializes in providing solutions to the key challenges facing banks today in attracting and building profitable relationships with their customers. She has been guiding the company’s training and consulting services for over thirty-five years. Her training and consulting expertise in leadership development, regulatory compliance, retail growth strategies, strategic planning, and sales and service culture implementations is recognized as providing “real world solutions” by banks of all sizes.
PSI’s training programs are designed to “close the gap” between the banks’ needs and employees' skills. A philosophy of experiential learning and participant involvement in training led to the development of the company’s “TELL-SHOW-DO” training method that is skill-based rather than theory. The training limits lecture discussions to a maximum of 7-9 minutes. PSI’s training programs are described as energized, fast-paced, interactive, and results-focused.
Before starting Performance Solutions in 1983, Dianne held senior positions with Bank South Corporation, the Internal Revenue Service, and the John H. Harland Company, where she introduced the highly acclaimed Officer Call Program. Dianne is a graduate of Georgia State University and is on the faculty of several state banking schools.
