The California Bankers Association provides our members with the
educational offerings and conferences necessary to grow their
businesses and to keep them profitable. One of the best
investments any bank can make is in the ongoing education and
training of its employees.
CBA has had a long-standing commitment to providing its members
with timely, high quality, cost-effective learning. In 2005 we
became your local American Bankers Association (ABA) training
provider, and now offer the entire American Institute of Banking
(AIB) continuing education curriculum.
Through a comprehensive program of conferences, banking schools,
teleconferences, on-line courses, and seminars offered in
flexible delivery formats, CBA can help bankers at every level
develop their professional and technical skills, from entry level
through executive management.
Chief financial officers, controllers, treasurers and
preparers of the Report of Condition and Income should not miss
this informative half-day seminar.
California Bankers Association and the FDIC are committed to
educating bankers on emerging regulatory issues as well as
providing a regulatory insight on bank examination
With the implementation of Basel III capital this year, the FDIC
has had numerous questions from the industry on the new
requirements and also on the intricacies of filing March 31,
2015, Call Reports. Because of this, the FDIC will provide
detailed training for community bankers on Basel III
implementation and Call Report requirements.
March 20, 2015 - 12:00pm - March 26, 2015 - 4:00pm
We have partnered with the American Bankers Association to offer
you two great options for compliance schools in 2015. CBA members
can register using the special forms located under the
“Resources” tab and receive ABA member rates!
CBA’s offsite seminars are excellent opportunities to stay
current on trends and topics in the banking industry, and network
with colleagues. However, these educational opportunities are not
always feasible as travel expenses and time away from the office
often limit who can attend an offsite seminar.
Private, customized, onsite training is the perfect option for
banks that need a cost-effective way to train a large number of
employees at once on a number of topics such as:
This three-part series provides 6 hours of training for all your
lenders and support staff. Session 1 provides an overview the
basics, session 2 covers lien perfection and session 3 reviews

advertising and marketing efforts is at an all-time high.
Advertising is being looked at in a different way than ever
