Peach State Bank leaders graduate from CBA Directors' College
GAINESVILLE - Steve McKibbon and Ron Quinn, both of Peach State Bank & Trust, recently graduated from the Community Bankers Association of Georgia (CBA) 2nd Annual Georgia Bank Directors’ College, a part of the Community Bankers University.
Bank Directors and CEOs received certificates of completion after two informative and interactive sessions in Savannah on September 21-22, 2011.
The sessions covered topics such as Stress Testing Your Loan Portfolio, Directors’ Role in Credit Risk Management, Interest Rate Risk Management and Monitoring. Commercial Real Estate Management and Workouts, Problem Loans, Troubled Debt Restructuring, Economic Update, Dodd-Frank Act, Regulatory Hot Topics, Loss Sharing Arrangements, maintaining an Adequate Allowance for Loan and Lease Losses, and Ten Best Practices for Bank Boards. Participants had an opportunity to learn first-hand from representatives from the FDIC’s Atlanta Regional Office, as well as from Jim McAlpin with the law firm Bryan Cave, LLP.
The CBA Bank Directors’ College was developed in 1998 with the assistance of state and federal regulators and other industry experts. The objective of the college is to present specialists who will aid in maximizing the potential of the community bank director. All topics and discussions are targeted toward providing information for participants to take back to their bank to use immediately to become a more effective bank director. The CBA has partnered with the Atlanta Regional Office of the FDIC to offer the Georgia Bank Directors’ College for the past two years.
“The role of a Bank Director has changed so dramatically over the past several years and our program has kept pace with this evolving position which is so critical to a bank’s future success,” said Carolyn Brown, President and Chief Executive Officer of the CBA. “This is one of our most beneficial and successful programs, and we take tremendous pride in helping our members refine their banking skills.”
