Several hundred bank officers are expected to attend the Kansas Bankers Assn.'s three-day Bank Management Clinic next week in the Kansas Union on the Kansas University campus.
Topics to be addressed during the annual workshop, which will run Monday through next Wednesday, include competitive challenges for financial institutions during the 1990s and legislative and regulatory issues affecting banks in Kansas.
Ann McMorris, a KBA spokesman, said this morning that 350 bankers had pre-registered for the clinic.
During Monday's general session of the clinic, which begins at 9 a.m., Lou Heckler, a peak performance specialist from Fort Myers, Fla., and Michael T. Higgins, a marketing expert from Lincoln, Neb., will give presentations on competition in banking and business.
The speaker at the general session that begins at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday is Bradley Belt, a former financial analyst at the Federal Reserve Bank in Kansas City, Mo. He now is minority counsel to the U.S. Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs and its securities subcommittee. Belt will discuss bank management challenges in the next decade.
At 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Robert R.D. Nickels, a long-range strategy specialist from New York, will discuss "Bank Strategies Focus and Flexibility."
During the final general session which begins at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, Kansas City attorney Barkley Clark will discuss "Key Legal Issues Facing Bankers in the '90s." Clark is a former Lawrence mayor and former member of the Kansas University law faculty.
All general sessions will be held in Woodruff Auditorium in the union.
In addition, the clinic has scheduled several panel discussions and concurrent workshops in which bankers will meet in smaller groups to discuss specific banking issues.
