Two events dedicated to professional development, networking
Each year, the Wisconsin Bankers Association (WBA) offers hundreds of educational opportunities for bankers. From schools and training programs held in the Engagement Center at the WBA headquarters in Madison to conferences across the state, the Association’s mission to provide professional development opportunities and resources to every member bank, regardless of their position, are abundant. As such, the Association is excited to revive two professional conferences in 2023!
As more businesses across Wisconsin struggle with engaging, retaining, and attracting employees, WBA’s Human Resources (HR) Conference will tackle the topics many HR professionals in Wisconsin’s banking industry have at the top of mind.
Last held in 2020, this year’s event will bring together Wisconsin community banking HR professionals on May 4 in Stevens Point. Attendees will have the opportunity to hear from several speakers; receive an update related on the everchanging landscape of the workplace and employment law; as well as network with their peers throughout the one-day event.
“With banks across Wisconsin facing more challenges setting themselves apart from other employment options, our Association wants to ensure our WBA members are equipped with the best practices and industry trends, all while having the opportunity to network with their peers,” stated WBA Director – Education Lori Kalscheuer.
This year’s HR Conference speakers include Julia Johnson, Wipfli LLP; Jennifer Mirus, Boardman & Clark LLP; Jackie Rolow, SHAZAM; and Jasmine Brett Stringer, award-winning author and keynote speaker.

WBA is excited to once again invite bankers to join us on May 17 in Madison for the Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Conference.
This one-day program, last held in 2018, will assist those bankers who make financial decisions throughout the bank — including, but not limited to, CFOs, CEOs, and controllers — stay up to date on the current and potential future issues affecting the financial health of their institution.
“As the last several years have proven, banks in Wisconsin are prepared to weather whatever economic conditions are thrown their way,” said WBA Director – Education Lori Kalscheuer. “The WBA CFO Conference will provide a day packed with valuable educational presentations from industry thought leaders, helping our members position themselves for a successful future.”
