June 23 & 24, 2020 | Zoom Virtual Seminar
August 25 & 26, 2020 | Stonewall Resort

**Due to COVID-19, the June sessions have been changed to a webinar via Zoom**

More than ever before, today's branch management team is faced with a multitude of challenges and opportunities. Successful banks have branch leaders who are focused on motivating and engaging the team, building, and increasing loyal customer relationships, mitigating risks through compliance and regulatory adherence, and accomplishing retail banking goals. In essence, the Branch Manager is the business manager.

To receive the Branch Management Certificate, four modules are required.  This session will include two modules.
