WHAT THE PROGRAM IS:
Knowledge and continued learning are indispensable for bank directors to properly fill their roles at financial institutions. The New Jersey Bankers Association, in partnership with FinPro, Inc., is pleased to announce a multi-faceted educational program, the Director Certification Program, designed to provide valuable learning and networking opportunities for bank directors. This new program is a part of NJBankers Leadership Academy.
The responsibilities of a bank director has changed significantly in recent decades. Directors are expected to be conversant in a growing list of regulatory matters and face a plethora of decisions each month relating to matters on the business of banking - from financial to lending to technology to marketplace competition.
The Director Certification Program was developed to provide broad exposure to the challenges and opportunities faced by today’s institutions. The program’s components include web-based training, in-person conferences, new board member training and customized full board training.
With the Director Certification Program, directors have the opportunity to demonstrate that they are keeping abreast of industry developments and trends by participating in a variety of learning platforms. The Program provides an annual certification designation to those directors that meet participation criteria.
To receive annual certification status, participants must be enrolled in the program and earn 15 credits over a 12 month period. At minimum, participants must partake in at least one in-person conference and one web-based education session. Credits can be earned as follows:
