In today’s community bank, the concept of risk and managing the bank’s exposure to risk is continually top-of-mind. Designed exclusively for community bankers, the ICBA Risk Management Institute offers participants an opportunity to enrich and affirm important knowledge of risk components influencing a community bank’s function and soundness. Minimizing risk to maximize potential is a vital initiative for every community bank.
