Board education and training are essential “best practices” in the new era of community banking. Regulatory expectations, along with the need for wise management, demand a skill set that many directors lack. In answer to this, IBAT and SWGSB are pleased to offer The Certified Community Bank Director’s (CCBD™) Program, held October 29-31, 2015 at the Cox School of Business.
Congratulations to Ricky Leal, Senior Vice President and Banking Center Manager at First Community Bank N.A (Harlingen, TX), for being appointed to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Community Bank Advisory Council.
