NBA Board of Directors and Chair-Elect
Our Association has benefitted greatly from the selfless contributions of our members over the past 132 years. Nominations are requested for the Chair-Elect and Board of Directors who will serve the industry and the NBA in 2022-2023. The NBA Nominating Committee will meet in March to review all nominations.
The banker selected as Chair-Elect will become a key spokesperson for the NBA. This individual is responsible for communicating our views, goals and interests to bank regulators, state and federal legislators, and the media whenever necessary. The Board of Directors is the NBA's governing body. Board members serve three-year terms and are responsible for making policy decisions, approving committee appointments, authorizing the budget and setting member dues. Both the Chair-Elect and board members are recommended by the Nominating Committee to the NBA Board for approval with a formal vote of approval by NBA members at the Annual Meeting, which will occur during the NBA Annual Convention, May 4-6, at the Embassy Suites, La Vista.
A board nominee should have prior service with the Association through support of and participation in NBA events as well as products and services, NBA committee involvement, NBA BankPAC financial contributions, and his/her financial institution’s support of and involvement in the NBA. Board nominees should have the respect of their peers and the credibility to represent the industry. Previous service on the NBA Board of Directors is highly desirable for the Chair-Elect nominee.
Volunteer for a Committee
All employees of NBA-member banks are encouraged to apply to serve the banking industry as a member of an NBA committee.
NBA Chair-Elect Stephen Stull, Farmers State Bank (Dodge), will recommend committee member selections to the NBA Board of Directors in March. Committee interest forms are due Jan. 14.
Attend the ABA Washington Summit
Two $1,500 scholarships are available for emerging leaders or young bankers to attend the American Bankers Association (ABA) Washington Summit March 7-9 in Washington, D.C. The ABA Washington Summit is in conjunction with the NBA Washington Legislative Visit. The scholarships are provided by the NBA and the ABA to encourage participants to learn more about regulatory issues affecting the banking industry and have one-on-one disucssions with Nebraska’s Congressional Delegation. Registration for the Summit is free, so the scholarship may be used to cover hotel and travel expenses. To enter the drawing to win, submit your information by Jan. 28 to Ron Arrigo at the NBA at firstname.lastname@example.org.
