Financial Managers School (Now Fully Virtual)

September 20 - 24, 2021

Presented by:

Originally scheduled to be held in Madison, Wisconsin - The School has decided to pivot to a distance learning format to ensure the health and safety of everyone as well as to mitigate the risk of quarantines, capacity limits or other circumstances that could potentially disrupt the School. Last year, when the School moved to a virtual format, they received top marks from faculty and students, including an overall rating of 4.8 out of 5.0. Their faculty also received a 4.9 rating for both instructor knowledge and faculty preparations from students in the 2020 School.


As the economic and regulatory environments continue to change, it’s vital that bank and credit union CFOs, controllers and other finance and accounting executives have a solid foundation in asset/liability management. The Financial Managers School provides this foundation through this unique, hands-on immersion program designed to provide workable strategies to help you meet your institution’s regulatory and financial performance objectives.

The Financial Managers School goes beyond the basics offering a learning environment aimed at giving you the practical tools you can bring back to your institution and implement immediately. You’ll learn innovative concepts and terminology of bank finance and asset/liability management as well as test practical implementation tools to help you profitably manage your institution’s balance sheet, enhance your strategic planning, and better communicate new strategies to your board and ALCO.
