SDBA 2018 New Accounts Seminar - Sioux Falls

April 4, 2018


Managing risk is the #1 priority for all financial institutions and it all starts at the new account desk. If a criminal cannot get in, they cannot steal from your organization. Well-trained new account personnel and universal bankers who recognize and stop attempted dishonest activity are the first line of defense in protecting a financial institution from fraudsters. Unfortunately, too often, new account personnel are trained "on the job" which results in an environment of potential vulnerability and unnecessary losses for the financial institution. Additionally, with constant new regulations, the need for ongoing training is paramount in order to maintain diligence as well as update processes and procedures. This full day workshop teaches important new account opening procedures and compliance requirements focusing on vital information for every type of new account. The seminar manual is customized to your state law and has become known as the "technical reference handbook" for new account departments across the country.


Suzette (Suzie) Jones, CFP® is the managing member of Training Resources Consulting, L.L.C. located in Houston, Texas. With over 40 years of experience in the financial industry, Suzie has focused her technical expertise on new accounts risk management and investment management.
