The announcement was made at the 2013 ICBSD CEO/ Directors Conference that two exciting new programs will be offered to our members in 2014.
1. The ICBSD will initiate an Emerging Leaders Program to help train and retain the next generation of South Dakota Community Bankers.
2. Through an exclusive partnership with Secure Banking Solutions, ICBSD will offer a Certified Community Bank Security Professional Program.

EMERGING LEADER PROGRAM
The future of community banking in South Dakota depends upon a new generation of bank leadership. These bankers will need to be progressive thinkers, technology-smart, legislatively-informed, and community-minded. The ICBSD Emerging Leaders Program is a yearlong educational series. The members will meet quarterly for a one day learning seminar. The day seminars will begin at 9:00 am and will conclude no later than 3:00 pm to allow for travel time.
The ICBSD Emerging Leaders Program prepares tomorrow’s independent community bank leaders with the necessary skills to ensure bank profitability and success. The program provides its members the opportunity to develop lifetime business relationships with the best and brightest people in community banking across South Dakota. From networking with peers and learning about political activism, to becoming more skilled and productive, members have the opportunity to help ensure the future strength of the South Dakota community banking industry.
CERTIFIED COMMUNITY BANK SECURITY PROGRAM
Starting in 2014, your bank’s key Information Security staff
members can become Certified Community Bank Security
Professionals so they can defend your institution from
today’s threats and meet current regulatory requirements.
Your staff will enhance their skillset and knowledge base in
the areas of information security to better demonstrate their
abilities for risk management, information security program
development, and IT auditing.
To successfully complete the CCBSP course, candidates
must attend all four of the events and complete an examination
during the last event. Continuing Educational
Credits (CPEs) are required each year to maintain the CCBSP
certification. To obtain these, candidates will be required to
participate in 6 credit hours of CCBSP courses annually.
