Are you looking for an opportunity to grow your professional network, share your banking knowledge and experience while serving Wisconsin’s banking industry?  The WBA Retail Section is seeking new members to serve on its Board.

The WBA Retail Banking Section Board assists in the development of educational programs and other projects to support retail bankers and loan officers. In addition, each spring the Section awards scholarships to high school seniors who work at a WBA Retail Banking Section member financial institution or whose parents work for a member financial institution. The Board meets three to four meetings per year.

Remember that the “B” in WBA stands for “Bankers.” Keep it that way by volunteering to serve on one of WBA’s 12 committees or section boards. When you volunteer, your profession gets the benefit of your expertise and commitment. In return, you get a valuable professional development and networking opportunity. And besides, it’s fun!

Your thoughts and ideas help the Association’s professional staff determine what member needs are. As a member of a WBA committee, you will directly impact what laws WBA staff lobbies for and what educational programs the WBA offers the membership.

But best of all, you will have the opportunity to learn from your banking colleagues from across Wisconsin. Many of our bank committee members say it’s the networking and friendships built while serving on a WBA committee that are the most memorable experiences.

If you are interested in serving, contact WBA’s Patty Rogers for more information at 608-441-1209 or via email.
