CHaiRMaN’S                         CORNER




                              In looking at the schedule of events for 2018, I see a flurry of NDBA activity being kicked off by the NDBA
                              Board Meetings and Bank Management Conference in Arizona next week.  March and April are packed with
                              educational opportunities such as the LEAD360 Conference, IRA and HSA Seminars, New Accounts Seminars
                              and peer group meetings.  The ABA Government Relations Summit in Washington DC, April 24-27, is a great
        Steve Rehovsky        opportunity for North Dakota bankers to advocate for the changes needed to better serve our customers.
        NDBA Chairman
        President             A sneak peek at the 2018 NDBA/SDBA Annual Convention in June is in this issue.  This year’s theme is
        First United Bank     “Innovate – Inspire – Ignite.” Be sure to mark your calendars for June 10-12 in Fargo.

                              We are excited to announce that Tracy Kennedy, a partner at the law firm of Zimney Foster P.C., Grand Forks,
                              will be NDBA’s Associate General Counsel. See page 13 for all the details.
                              I look forward to seeing you at the various meetings
                              and events over the next few busy months.
