The Crazy World Of IRA Rules and Regulations
While it may take years to build a confidence level where you can answer almost any question thrown your way, the goal of these two days is to raise your comfort level if you are a rookie and to reinforce your knowledge if you have a higher level of experience. You will also receive your favorite "tool" - the 250-page, 2019 - 2020 Sunwest Training Corp's IRA Training and Reference Manual - which is not only full of easy-to-follow IRA information but also lots of "Cheat Sheets" and "Quick Reference Tools" to get you through your day-to-day tasks of dealing with your IRA customers. 

Whether you are looking to gain basic knowledge of IRAs, raise your comfort level or sharpen your skills with the most up-to-date rules and regulations, this two-day  format will cover everything!

To succeed in today's banking world, bank officers need the wisdom and expertise that comes from perception and insight, an astute ability to discover, discern and decide. It's that kind of knowledge that the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University has been offering to experienced bank officers for over 70 years.

Completion of the program has become a requisite to professional advancement in many banks. Executives at multi-billion dollar financial institutions as well as community banks find that the School's curriculum addresses their educational needs. WVBankers has three scholarships available; one is reserved for a minority or female student and one is reserved for a bank regulator. If you are interested in learning more about applying, please contact Sally Cline, WVBankers President & CEO

The 2020 session runs May 25 - June 5, 2020. Join thousands of other executives who have attended GSBLSU and have left the school with a new kind of knowledge - one that separates them apart.
