    2019 School of Compliance 03/05/2019 - 03/08/2019 Courtyard By Marriott Compliance is one of the most crucial and consuming issues in the financial industry today. The regulatory agencies are making it clear through their examinations of banks that no institution can afford to be without a comprehensive, well-managed compliance program. Your compliance officer must be able to run the process, including a bank-wide training program, like a well-oiled machine. As a major resource for banking education, the MBA provides this year’s School of Compliance. It ensures that financial institutions have the latest knowledge and preparation they need to properly handle compliance issues. Constant changes and the highly charged regulatory environment make this information more important than ever to your financial institution. You will have the opportunity to interact with nationally-known compliance experts and with others involved in compliance from institutions similar in size to your own. Add to Calendar

    Agriculture & Ag Lending: Taking Care of Business 03/05/2019 Stoney Creek Hotel & Conference Center The agricultural industry is now in its seventh year of an economic reset with razor thin margins combined with increased volatility. What is around the corner and down the road concerning the global and domestic economy? Will 2019 be the year that the U.S. economy establishes a record for longevity of the economic expansion, or is a recession looming around the corner? How will trade issues impact farm and ranch profi tability? Will farm land values and cash rents continue to hold their value in the context of rising interest rates? A 2020 to 2030 look at major mega trends that will impact the agricultural industry will cover topics ranging from dietary preferences to workplace culture and technology trends. All of these macro-economic issues and trends will place a premium on business and financial IQ. Participants will be presented with the latest financial benchmarks. A business IQ chart will provide a format to size up management through critical questions that often result in crucial conversations. A new analysis format will be presented for analyzing character, as well as the 10 characteristics of successful managers. Come with your questions to engage Dr. Kohl in an ESPN hot seat format.

    IRA Basics Seminar 04/23/2019 Drury Plaza Hotel and Convention Center This course is designed as a “Very Basic” IRA as it is designed to build a great solid IRA foundation.

Discussion will go through the 13 exceptions to taking money out of an IRA before age 59.5 to avoid the penalty tax, and how RMD is calculated in a traditional IRA.
