May 2018 – May 2019
As President of the Kansas Bankers Association (KBA) Trust Division, I would like to welcome you to our website. Whether you are a trust professional or just seeking further information about our organization, we hope you find this site helpful.
The goal of our organization, as stated in our Mission Statement, is to “support, enhance and promote the Trust Industry in Kansas”. One of our main efforts toward this goal includes member education, which we provide mainly through our member conferences. Kansas trust professionals who attend these conferences to enhance their skills also benefit from face-to-face peer networking opportunities which better prepare them to serve their trust and wealth management clients.
The Fall Trust Conference is an annual event that brings together trust professionals from across the state to discuss timely topics and listen to state and national industry leaders. The KBA Trust Division also works with other Midwestern states to sponsor the MOKAN Trust Conference each spring. The MOKAN conference has become one of the industry’s premiere conferences. Both conferences provide our members valuable Continuing Education credits as well as opportunities to network with other trust and wealth management professionals. Check out the “Kansas Trust Conference” and “MOKAN” tabs on this site for more information on each event.
If you are not a KBA Trust Division member and would like to become a member, please call the KBA office at (785) 232-3444 and ask for Brenda Unruh or LeAnn Mott. They will be more than happy to answer any questions you have and help you become a member of our organization. I may be a bit biased, but I truly believe the KBA Trust Division is the best organization in our state when it comes to promoting the Trust and Wealth Management industry.
Once again, if you’re not a member, I strongly encourage you to join. If you are a member, thank you for your support and I hope to see you at one of our conferences this coming year.
