About LEAD FWD | Community Bank Leadership Education

Leadership is a lifestyle! The ICBA LEAD FWD Summit is back for its eighth year and is your ticket to becoming the best leader you can be.

This event will push you beyond your comfort zone and spark your creativity with compelling content, new collaboration challenges, bold keynote speakers, and more! Unlike conventional conferences, the LEAD FWD Summit is not a listen-only event.

Participants actively engage in small-group discussions, problem-based case studies, and experiential exercises that have been designed to foster an active-learning environment.

The LEAD FWD Summit’s purpose-driven content cuts through the clutter and zeroes in on the knowledge and skills that you need to take your career and your community bank to the next level.

Don’t miss this opportunity to broaden your network and surround yourself with other community bank leaders who share your passion for learning and leading the community banking industry forward!
