All convention attendees and guests are invited to join us for an evening of networking, food and fun as we kick off this year’s convention with a casual reception in the heart of Downtown Des Moines at West End Architectural Salvage – an adventure in treasures, texture and tradition. Every corner, every floor and every moment is filled with discovery as you walk your way through this unique and inspiring place. This is more than a place to find recycling at its best, it is a trip through time back to your childhood. It is a photographer’s dream, it’s five stories of treasures… each with a story. Discover antique furniture and accessories; vintage lights; hardware and building materials; mantels; and stained glass.

Jeff Bush is known for his unique ability to decode difficult and confusing tax and fiscal information coming out of Washington.

Jeff will provide a nonpartisan analysis of the current political environment. He will lay out how the new administration’s initiatives are likely to affect the economy, industry sectors, tax planning, investments, and the markets.

Mike Rayburn
All convention attendees are invited to join us in the ballroom for our Spark! lunch. You might remember from last year, Spark! is all about passion, ideas, interests, and pursuits. This year’s featured speaker is guitar aficionado Mike Rayburn. Mike’s “What If…?” Experience will inspire innovation, reawaken your natural creativity, renew and harness your sense of life purpose and open your mind to all you never knew was possible. It will encourage you to become the best at what you do, a master of all things that matter. The message is simple, powerful and memorable like a great song hook. Mike uses his amazing guitar work and hilarious comedy as a metaphor, to illustrate three tools designed to turn your team into an army of innovators with the peak performance skills to transcend the status quo.

1:30 p.m.           Breakout Sessions
                                 Sponsored by CliftonLarsonAllen LLP

1. 10 Trends That Will Change How Your Bank Does Business
Chris Nichols, Chief Strategy Officer, CenterState Bank
Learn the “secret” formula that has been successful for every top performing bank and understand the need to create a value proposition that will withstand the test of time.
Also, see what will make a difference in lending, deposits and fee income. Finally, explore the five new technologies that your bank will need to have to be successful. 

2. Human Capital Management: Your Bank’s Key to Long Term Success
Alan Kinsey, Vice President, Inquirehire
Banking organizations face many challenges including competitive pressures, increasing regulatory and compliance requirements, and workforce composition. The key to solving these challenges is effective human capital management and the only sustainable competitive advantage for your bank is the people who work there. In this presentation we will discuss effective human capital management techniques including talent acquisition, employee retention, leadership development, and succession planning.

3. The Science of Managing Compliance Risks
Julie Gliha, Vice President Regulatory Compliance, Iowa Bankers Association
Compliance Management has become less of a check box activity and more a science. With the daunting pages of regulation and guidance coming from the various regulators, management can’t afford to take their eye off the ball.  During this session you will receive an overview of the mortgage servicing rule changes, the risks of reporting inaccurate information to the credit reporting agencies, and upcoming changes to HMDA and small business lending.  This session is for banks of all sizes so don’t miss out!

4. Cybersecurity Liability and Fraud
John Lande, Attorney, Dickinson Law

Cyber and data security remain a priority issue for banks. Criminals are constantly searching for creative new ways to obtain money from banks and customers through fraud and cybersecurity vulnerabilities. In this session, you will learn about recent data breach litigation, bank liability for EFT/ACH fraud, current insurance coverage issues, and risk mitigation.

5. M&A Trends and the Current Environment
Kamal Mustafa, Chairman & CEO, Invictus Consulting Group LLC

The community banking market has always been conservative and traditional. But there are unique pressures that are silently putting pressure on investors. The change in the community banking market has been masked by traditional accounting and asset liability management systems and ignored by market analysts and investment bankers. The prolonged period of low interest rates has slowly poisoned balance sheets, which will eventually lead to more consolidation – even for reluctant banks.

Imagine living a lie for 31 years. That’s what James Olson and his wife Meredith did while spying for the CIA.

In his presentation, Olson takes you inside the real world of being a CIA spy. He describes the rigorous training they receive and the difficult dilemmas that they face in the field on a daily basis.
