CEO Network

CEO Network

Few things can help you more as the CEO of a community bank than learning from the firsthand experience of your peers. Would you like an opportunity to interact with the CEO of another community bank, how about a room full of them? ICBM’s CEO Network offers you that opportunity and more.

CEOs that join the network are paired with peers – discussion groups are limited to 20 participants and based on asset size and market to ensure topics are relatable and competition is minimal. To ensure you get the highest value out of each forum, the facilitator will encourage participants to submit topics of interest prior to the event.

Attendees will:

  • Discuss current industry challenges.
  • Solve your most pressing problems.
  • Obtain access to highly respected industry experts.
  • Expand your personal and professional growth and form lasting relationships with your peers

 Complimentary for Bank Members only
