UW-Whitewater - Finance Day
September 27, 2019

David Wilbik (Johnson Bank) and Melissa Torres (State Bank of Cross Plains) of the RMA Wisconsin Chapter joined the Finance Association at UW-Whitewater on 9/27/19 for its first ever Finance Day! Students arranged for panels to present and discuss questions about the transition from college to the workforce, advice on succeeding in their careers and talk about why they decided on careers in finance. Panelists ranged from bankers to real estate agents to financial planners to investment bankers. It was an awesome event and we look forward to partnering with them at future events!


How times have changed for the Chapter.....

July 2020

As the entire World was forced into the VIRTUAL world with the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020 going on, our chapter has adapted and strived to utilize all of the functions of ZOOM. We continue to hold Quarterly Board Meeting, Roundtables, Industry Related Webinars and Educational Courses through this VIRTUAL meeting platform. We are excited to continue to connect with the Banking Industry Professionals and provide as much resources as we can to assist them in their roles. We hope soon enough we will be back to meeting in person, but until then we hope to see everyone through our VIRTUAL events.

RMA Announcements

RMA Annual Conference
The Annual Risk Management Conference is RMA’s flagship event that brings together financial risk professionals across all lines of defense from various sizes of institutions across the country. There is something for everyone – countless opportunities to share best practices, hear from industry leaders on hot topics, and chat with peers to build an engaging network.

This year, the event will be held virtually, but you will have all of the same opportunities to connect with other professionals, share your experiences, and hear from top leaders in the banking industry – all from your office. The lineup this year is top-notch, with keynote addresses from Doris Kearns Goodwin, presidential historian, Carl Tannenbaum, Chief Economist at The Northern Trust, and Malcolm Griggs, Chief Risk Officer at Citizens Financial Group, Inc. With tracks for credit risk, current & emerging risks, enterprise & operational risk, workplace issues, and internal audit, there is truly something for all financial risk professionals.
