What is an IBAT Cluster program? It's an educational format where all employees from numerous banks in a close geographic area are invited to participate in a live 2-hour evening workshop on a banking hot topic. Besides the excellent training they'll receive locally, the benefit for IBAT member banks is they can send an unlimited number of employees and board of directors for the flat rate of $850. (Non-IBAT investment is $1,050.) Some banks prefer to send a limited number of employees so we work with them on their investment dollars.
"Everyone here at State National Bank enjoyed the training so much we were still buzzing about it the next day. We like how you held your workshop, it had a down to earth feeling to it. Even though, we were a group it felt as if you were talking one-on-one with each one of us. You really help us understand the many aspects of the BSA / AML programs." -Susann Minyard
"Since the IBAT Cluster program, employees have gone out of their way to tell me how valuable they found it to be. Our BSA officer now has the confidence that our employees realize the importance of BSA compliance." -David Chadwick
What's planned for 2013?
- Bringing programs once again (like we have since 2009) to areas like Marble Falls, Georgetown, Marfa, Bonham, Schulenburg/LaGrange, Brenham, Permian Basin (Midland/Odessa), Corpus Christi, Castroville, & Amarillo.
- Determining if bankers in area like Weslaco/Harlingen, Pasadena, Bryant/College Station, Fredricksburg, Beaumont/Port Arthur, Huntsville/Conroe, Waco, Abilene & Tyler (to name just a few) would welcome and support our bringing cluster training to them.
We'd love to bring cluster training to your part of Texas! We're trying to reach more of our bankers so let us know what areas you'd like us to come to and we'll try to make it happen. Please contact Jessica Molina at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 800-749-4228 to learn more.
