Register For Ag Lending School

Registration is open for the 2022 WBA Agricultural Lending School held Aug. 10-12 at the Wisconsin Bankers Association office in Madison.

This school is designed for ag lenders with a few years of experience or for those lenders who would like a refresher. Credit analysts, processors, and other ag lending staff will also benefit.

Those attendees with fewer than two years of experience should consider registering to attend the optional pre-school workshop on Aug. 9.

The classes will begin at 9 a.m. on Wednesday and conclude at 3 p.m. on Friday. This school was developed as an intermediate-level school. Case studies, in-class work, class discussions, and a farm visit are all elements of this school.

The curriculum includes a “lender’s lens” on agriculture today; the borrower and lender relationship; agricultural financial statements; a farm business financial model; cash flow budgeting; credit analysis, structuring and enhancements; risk management; commodity marketing; loan narrative; a farm visit; problem loans and red flags; and bank policy.

The student fee of $895 includes program registration, instruction and materials, and lunch and refreshment breaks daily. Dinner will be provided Thursday evening with the farm visit. Registration for the optional pre-school workshop is an additional $200/attendee.
