WBA’s annual Management Conference returns in September
By Hannah Flanders
In September, bank management teams from across Wisconsin will have the opportunity to hear from economist Dr. Ed Seifried during the Wisconsin Bankers Association’s (WBA) annual Management Conference. Having experience teaching students at various banking schools, educating C-suite and bank management staff, and serving as a director for a community bank, Dr. Seifried brings decades of knowledge and experience to this year’s event.
As bankers in Wisconsin find themselves navigating unprecedented challenges relating to inflation, interest rates, and the recent banking crisis, Dr. Seifried will provide attendees with the techniques to monitor the local and global economy, forecast a recession, and prepare resources and responses to assure customers of the stability of the U.S. financial system.
Although Dr. Seifried believes that the current period of inflation is about halfway over, continually monitoring GDP reports will be critical for bankers to ensure that their institution remains able to support growth through loan quality and liquidity. Additionally, utilizing various techniques to monitor the economy will allow bankers to explore appropriate solutions for their bank and remain in the know on current topics impact their communities, according to Dr. Seifried.
Dr. Seifried is one of two keynote speakers presenting during WBA’s annual Management Conference. The event, which kicks off on Wednesday, September 20 with an evening reception, will bring together c-suite bankers and various members of the bank’s management team for networking and education.
