The MBA’s 2023 IRA School on Sept. 12 - 14, which will be offered in person in Columbia, will address these relevant changes. In addition, IRAs are one of the most complicated areas of bank personnel responsibility, and it is not possible to learn and understand everything. Continual education is necessary to ensure confidence. Working with IRAs is a process and must start with a strong foundation. This school can provide this foundation through a comprehensive curriculum. Add to Calendar
