Emerging Leaders Program

The Idaho Bankers Association is working hand-in-hand with Idaho’s banks to create a new emerging leaders program. We will be looking for young ambitious bankers who one day see themselves as the next members of their banks leadership team and want to capitalize on a great career educational opportunity.

Throughout this program, you will learn the characteristics and skills of a skilled and trustworthy leader; the principles and practices needed to develop people to be the best that they can be at what they do; the knowledge and abilities that create and maintain high-quality work processes; and the foresight to create a work culture that will outlive the your presence.

Who is an Emerging Leader?

We are looking for bankers who will become the next leaders in their industry. We are looking for Idaho’s next banking professionals who will represent Idaho’s financial industry into the future. Over the course of the year, emerging leaders will learn how the importance and impact of proper self-management will ultimately have a positive impact on their overall work product, they will learn the critical tools they will need to effectively lead others, and how to one day leave their legacy on the industry.

What is Next?

Registration for the program will open in the Fall of 2021 with classes starting January 2022. The class size will be capped at 20 students who will meet once a quarter over a two day period. More details will be published in the coming months about the schedule along with the curriculum.

If you have any questions, or would like more information on the program, please do not hesitate to reach out to Zach Forster at zforster@idahobankers.org or (208) 342-8282.
