WBA BOLT Summer Leadership Summit

The Building Our Leaders of Tomorrow (BOLT) Summer Leadership Summit will be held at Glacier Canyon in Wisconsin Dells next month! Join emerging leaders from across the state June 9–10 for the opportunity to develop leadership skills in addition to building and growing your career in banking.

The registration fee of $200/attendee includes several general session presentations, breakout sessions, as well as an interactive workshop facilitated by Laura Mael, director of talent and people development at Pareto’s Talent — a division of Lift Consulting, LLC — and Matthew Pletzer, president and CEO of Lift Consulting, LLC.

The interactive workshop titled “Leading Yourself to Lead Others” will help inform emerging leaders from every experience in the bank — from entry-level roles to c-level — on how they can effectively lead others. Mael and Pletzer will equip attendees with the tools and resources necessary to set personal and professional goals, reach these goals, and inspire others to do the same.

Every emerging leader attending the BOLT Summer Leadership Summit in June will enjoy hearing from nationally known speakers on leadership as well as specific banking topics, make connections, and learn to advocate for their industry in an energized environment.

In addition to breaks, meals, and a reception on Thursday evening, banking peers will have the opportunity to take part in sessions specifically designed for networking through peer group discussions over the course of the two-day Summit.

Attendees will also receive several updates regarding recent government activity related to banking, WBA’s Washington, D.C. visits, and a recap of WBA’s fifth annual Power of Community Week. This information will help advise WBA’s emerging leaders on the how and why of getting involved both in their local communities as well as state and federal government for the benefit of the banking industry.
