AMERICAN BANKERS ASSOCIATION At Your Service in the know with CeCelia Calaby aba SVP, Office of Regulatory Policy ababJ: What’s the role of aba’s banker working groups? Cecelia Calaby: Through our working groups—along with our committee members and peer group members— bankers share their expertise by helping us identify aspects of a regulatory proposal that are workable and those that are troublesome. The working groups enable members to effectively share their views, and shape our comment letters to the agencies and our regulatory advocacy. Professional DeveloPment aBa/iCB Certifications reach 10,000-member milestone Financial professionals carrying certifications earned through the ABA’s Institute of Certified Bankers (ICB) now number over 10,000—a new record. The ICB certifications are known industrywide as the standard of excellence for financial services skills and knowledge. A recent survey of ICB members (those holding ICB certifications) is even more impressive: • Nine out of ten say their ICB certification has helped them achieve career goals. • Eight out of ten say their ICB certification has led to recognition from executive management. • Nearly three-quarters say their ICB certification earns them clout with clients. • Half say their ICB certification resulted in an award or recognition by their employer. • Nearly half say their ICB certification led to a bonus or pay raise. • Nearly half say their ICB certification led to a new job or promotion. “The results of this survey prove what we’ve always known—that an ICB certification distinguishes the holder as among the most highly-trained and competent professionals in their field,” says Jim Edrington, executive vice-president of ABA’s Professional Development Group. “It’s evident that employers and clients alike recognize the value that comes from working with an ICB-certified professional.” ICB offers nine professional certification programs in the fields of wealth management and trust, compliance and risk management, lending, bank marketing, and retirement services. Members must meet specific certification experience and education requirements, pass a comprehensive exam, and abide by ICB’s code of ethics. In order to maintain the certification, members must complete continuing education and pay an annual fee. To learn more, go to aba.com/Training/ICB. n ababJ: What are some examples? CC: Our Basel III working group has more than 300 members. In another instance, we reached out to bankers in the $10 billion to $50 billion cohort to engage in the banking agencies’ DoddFrank mandated stress testing proposal. We’re working with those members now on the first round of stress testing. It’s also important to note that this work informs our advocacy for all members, even those not subject to the regulations. We need to get to regulations that are useful and workable. Our participating bankers help us do that. Questions? Send an e-mail to Cecelia at ccalaby@aba.com.
