Important Message From Community Banker University

As a valued ICBA event attendee, the trust you place in Community Banker University for your educational needs is deeply appreciated by all of us at ICBA.

With the current COVID-19 (coronavirus) environment in our country, it is important for ICBA and Community Banker University to take the appropriate steps to ensure the health and safety of all attendees, speakers, and staff. 

While some parts of the country are beginning to reopen, we are learning that today’s social distancing requirements will significantly alter the in-person participant learning experience.  Therefore, we have decided to host the remainder of our seminars and institutes via live-stream, interactive video in lieu of our original plan to hold them in person.

Dates and agenda times will be altered to omit Sunday start days and to accommodate the different time zones of attendees. Instructors are working diligently to optimize the digital learning experience and to ensure we adhere to the same best-in-class curriculum standards as our in-person events. 

Please continue to check this website for updated information. Information on how to access the live-streamed event will be sent to you prior to the event start date.

For current ICBA certified bankers, participation in our virtual events can be used as “LIVE CPE” for your continuing education credit requirements.

Please let us know if you have additional questions or concerns. You may contact us at 800-422-7285 at any time.

Seminar and Institute FAQs

  • What can you expect from a virtual seminar, institute, conference, or workshop?

    Community Banker University’s seminars, institutes, conferences, and workshops will offer the same blend of learning, connection, and fun that you would expect from any in-person ICBA event.

    We will use the same instructors, breakout sessions, plus a chat feature, polling questions, and virtual networking to ensure you feel connected and engaged throughout the event. Participants will receive event materials electronically via their account

  • Why did you decide to change the live events to virtual events?

    With so many unknowns affecting travel and potentially the health and safety of participants we decided to take all live in person scheduled events for 2020 to 100% virtual events so that we could fully focus our energies on creating optimal experiences for participants.
  • Has Community Banker University ever hosted a virtual conference?

    Yes! In April and May, Community Banker University successfully hosted several of its seminars and certification institutes virtually. Feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and we are building on those successes to create engaging events for all of our programs.
  • Will I have access to a recording of the event?

    No, these sessions will not be recorded for distribution.
  • Can I have other individuals in my bank join me?

    Unfortunately, no. The registration is designed for the individual attendee. However, with no travel expenses, it is more economical and convenient than ever for banks to register more than one employee.
  • Will I be issued CPE credits for these virtual sessions?

    ICBA will take attendance each day at all of the virtual sessions. We are able to see when you log in and log out of the sessions. ICBA will issue a Certificate of Completion for CPE credits at the completion of each session. These CPE can be used for maintenance of ICBA certifications
  • Will I be able to take the exams to earn a certification?

    Yes, you will have access to the certification exam(s) through ICBA’s Online Platform. You will be able to access the exam by logging into the online platform at the time specified by ICBA. You will not be allowed any outside help or materials while completing the exam. You will have a designated amount of time in which to complete and submit the exam.
  • What is the technology I will need to access the live-stream event?

    Our events will be hosted in a Zoom platform.

    For security purposes, we will set a password on all meetings to ensure the meeting is protected from hackers.  We also enable Zoom’s “Waiting Room” feature, which allows our meeting hosts to keep participants in a digital queue until they are verified and approved to join  

    Requirements for participation in the zoom event are as follows:

    • An internet connection – broadband wired or wireless (3G or 4G/LTE)
    • Speakers and a microphone – built-in or USB plug-in or wireless Bluetooth.
    • A webcam or HD webcam – built-in or USB plug-in.
