Stacey Gallagher, Senior Vice President – Retail Banking, graduated from the Future Leaders Alliance (FLA) offered through the Illinois Bankers Association (IBA). The graduation commencement was held virtually during the IBA’s annual ONE Conference on Friday, March 5th. The 14-month FLA program is dedicated to enhancing the professional development of promising bank leaders through three primary components: education, community service and networking.

Participants were involved in comprehensive training that included attending educational sessions, performing local community service, and completing an advancement strategy project that brought value directly back to their banks and customers. Stacey’s advancement strategy project was to remodel the teller line at the bank’s West Chicago branch, which modified standing teller stations to retail banker desks. All teller and retail banking staff will be crossed trained in both jobs to improve efficiency, customer service, workflow and scheduling.

The education sessions covered core topics such as Leadership and Influence, Team Building, Coaching, Service Leadership, Collaboration Skills, Financial Marketing and Branding, Legislative Process, Presentation Skills, Accounting for Bankers, Asset Liability Management, Regulatory Hot Topics, Cyber Security, executed an on-line banking simulation, and more.
