UBA Development Programs

The Utah Bankers Association is excited to offer a series of development programs designed to help advance budding talent within Utah's banking industry.  The three intense learning experience programs, taught by subject experts in each of these specialized areas are convenient, timely and cost-effective by offering lower in-state travel expense. These interactive annual programs, modeled after the UBA’s extremely successful Executive Development Program (EDP), are an important part of the UBA’s ongoing effort to help develop leaders, building a strong future for the banking industry in Utah.

Commercial Lending Development Program (CLDP)

The CLDP has been redesigned based on our members’ feedback. This course emphasizes the entire commercial loan life cycle and provides participants with current lending approaches, an updated focus on key analytics and regulatory issues. Students will improve their credit and marketing skills as a result of this training, learning best practices by participating in case studies and learn first-hand from industry executive speakers.

2018 class dates:  September 4-5; October 11-12; November 15-16; December 6-7

Small Business Banker Development Program (SBBDP)

Small business owners want more than checking accounts and loans from their bank; they want business-savvy bankers who understand their business and can make recommendations to help them be more efficient with their time and money. For the SBBDP, the UBA has teamed with three national small business-banking experts to develop this six-session program to help Utah bankers aggressively pursue this profitable market segment and serve small businesses effectively.

The SBBDP features time-tested skills that provide bankers with the ability to capture, and keep, a business owner’s loyalty and trust. This program is designed for branch managers, small business bankers, relationship managers, business development officers, and any banker who works with small businesses. Credit administrators who analyze and approve these deals would also benefit.

2019 class dates:  TBA
Program runs January - March
Cost: $1,950 for 6 classes
