Emerging Leaders

The SDBA has embarked on an exciting effort to build and deepen the connection of the next generation of banking leaders. The SDBA has formed an Emerging Leaders Work Group to identify specifics for emerging leaders programming and develop a marketing plan to support and promote this idea. The work group has developed a marketing strategy around this effort and crafted the following mission statement and objectives.

MISSION STATEMENT
To grow South Dakota’s future bank leaders

OBJECTIVES
Cultivate: Increase emerging bank leaders’ knowledge and understanding of the SDBA and topics of interest to the banking industry.
Connect: Provide opportunities for emerging bank leaders to network and exchange ideas with other industry professionals.
Engage: Promote involvement and advocacy at the local, state and federal levels.
Empower: Encourage emerging bank leaders to find and express their voices within their organizations, communities, SDBA and banking industry.

Upcoming emerging leader events include the SDBA State Legislative Day on Feb. 13, 2019, in Pierre and the SDBA/NDBA Annual Convention on June 2-4, 2019, in Sioux Falls. The SDBA plans to provide emerging leader-specific programming at both events.
