FLD logoThe future of the Indiana banking community relies not only on its current leadership structure, but also on our collective ability to develop young leaders for future success. With that vision, the Indiana Bankers Association created the Future Leadership Division (FLD) to assist the next generation of industry leaders.

The FLD cultivates emerging professionals within the Indiana banking industry by providing opportunities in networking, education and volunteer leadership. To further these goals, the FLD proudly presents the 5th annual 2017 Leadership Conference, scheduled for November 30 & December 1 at the Omni Severin Hotel, Indianapolis, IN.

Featuring a strong lineup of top-flight presenters, educational sessions will focus on leadership traits, technology and industry insights. We know relationship-building is key to the banking community, so there will be ample opportunity for peer networking with fellow future banking leaders.
