Education & Events
We are committed to enhancing the value of membership for our members.
That is why we offer several educational opportunities and conferences including the following:
We are all painfully aware of the rapidly changing legislative, regulatory, legal and competitive landscape facing community banks. Maintaining awareness of these changes is an increasing challenge. The CBWV has become a key tool for most of us to educate new directors and reengage our existing directors. The Directors College and the annual Directors Conference provide forums for our directors to increase their awareness of issues and communicate directly with our regulators. CBWV provides high quality web based staff training through a partnership with Financial Education and Development.
Some of the most valuable education that we as community bankers receive comes from communication with other bankers who face the same challenges. Donna Tanner and her staff provide a clearing house for questions from individual members to other community bankers. She reports on the significant developments impacting our banks. Finally, once a year we come together at convention to share our experiences, solutions and lives with each other.
