Webinar: Your Growth Secret: Winning Affluent Millennials

In an exclusive one-time only webinar, Jason Dorsey will share with you exactly how to attract, communicate with and retain affluent millennials. You may remember Jason as the Gen Y keynote speaker from ICBA's 2014 convention who received a rousing standing ovation. Jason will share step-by-step actions you can use on your website, social media, on location and in person. The best part is the actions can all be implemented to drive results within 30 days.

Webinar: Watching Your Watch List
WebEquity Solutions, an ICBA Preferred Service Provider, invites you to attend its webinar, “How to Effectively Watch Your Watch List”. Proactive and standard processes for problem loan detection and management need to be a mainstay for commercial/ag lenders of any size. Are your “watch list” loans being monitored and managed as effectively as possible? When a credit is risk rated “watch”, or placed on the watch list, what is the expectation? If you are looking at the watch list from a management or board perspective, are you getting the information you need and seeing a level of progress that gives you confidence? This presentation will explore best practices to employ in the process of handling watch list loans from assignment to watch status and monitoring through the identification of opportunities to improve the relationship.
