Next Generation in Banking
Next Generation in Banking, formerly known as Young Bankers Leadership Division, reflects MBA’s goal to attract a more diverse range of bank staff – from those new to the industry to those with many years of experience. Next Generation in Banking is designed for bankers who are interested in opportunities to further develop skills in leadership, advocacy and volunteerism.

Although the name is new, the mission for NextGen remains the same — to enhance and foster the development of Missouri’s next generation of banking professionals.
