The IBA will continue our forum program for Risk Management Officers again in 2019. We continue to see this specialized area of banking as one that is evolving and one that is crucial to your future success.  During our first two years, we have been building an ERM process with the assistance of both our regulators and experts from the various risk management disciplines within our industry and in 2019, we will continue that process.

The forum truly is designed to provide a platform for those institutions that have already begun building their ERM process as well as those that are working toward improving their internal risk management procedures.  Our objective is to learn from regulators, industry experts, and, perhaps, most importantly from one another.  We see Risk Management as a “non-competitive” industry issue that lends itself particularly  well to information sharing and we expect our third year to be filled with such sharing as we continue to enhance management of those key risks.

We are certain that the evolving nature of enhanced risk management will continue to provide new challenges to you and to our industry when you attend this informative Forum.  Risk Executives are the target audience for our Forum and our group includes individuals from Audit, Credit, Compliance, and the CFO function - we hope you will join us in 2019 as we continue the journey toward “Enhanced Risk Management”.



The Topics for each session will flow based on feedback from participants in the forum group.  As necessary, subject matter experts will be brought in to cover specific issues and topics based on responses from forum members.

Who Should Attend
Risk executives – CROs- are the target audience for this forum, but CEOs or CFOs of organizations that do not have an established risk department or function also would  benefit from the forum.


Karl Nelson, president and CEO of KPN Consulting will lead the Forum discussion.  Nelson served as a   senior vice president with the Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta from 1991 through 2002 where he managed the sales and marketing, strategic planning, and trade association/regulatory outreach efforts and served on the bank’s ALCO.  Prior to joining the FHLB, he was involved for 18 years with various regional banks. 

Nelson serves on the faculties of the Graduate School of Banking in Madison, WI and Boulder, CO, the Graduate School of Banking Investments & Financial Management in Columbia, SC, the Financial Managers School in Madison, the Asian Banking Academy, as well as the faculties of many of the state banking schools.  Nelson is an organizing director and ALCO chairman for a de novo bank in North Carolina and consults regularly with community bank boards and management on business strategies.
