2004 ICBA Education Catalog Released

Washington, D.C. (Jan. 22, 2004) - More than 120 courses for community bankers are featured in this year's Independent Community Bankers of America's Education Seminars and Products Catalog.

The recently released 50-page catalog concisely lists ICBA's many professional development options available to community bankers, including classroom, audio and online professional development opportunities. The catalog also highlights various education products, such as publications and videos.

"ICBA is the only national trade association that tailors its educational programs exclusively to meet the needs of community bankers," said ICBA Education Director Greg Martinson. "Community bankers have direct input on the courses we offer and the content of those courses. ICBA education is driven by community bankers."

All ICBA education courses and products come with a 100 percent guarantee, and ICBA instructors have direct experience working with community banks, Martinson added. "We are confident that any community bank will find exceptional value in ICBA education opportunities."

Last year more than 13,000 community bankers used an ICBA education product or service. This year's courses, including five certification programs, cover topics in technology, management strategies, lending, regulatory compliance, marketing and relationship selling. "There is something available for all levels of community bank staff, from CEOs to senior managers to frontline employees," Martinson said.

Education course and product information is posted on ICBA's website at www.icba.org/education. Community bankers should also look for a condensed version of the 2004 ICBA education catalog in the January issue of Independent Banker, ICBA's monthly magazine.
