The Tennessee Bankers Association recently announced that 31 bankers completed requirements for graduation from the 2011 session of The Southeastern School of Consumer Credit.
Among those who graduated recently from the school were Jake Bynum with First State Bank in Dresden and Amanda Joyner with Reelfoot Bank in Fulton.
The annual program was held at the Owen Graduate School of Management on the Vanderbilt University campus in Nashville.
The Southeastern School of Consumer Credit is an intensive one-week school.
The school exposes students to the major issues consumer credit managers face on a daily basis.
The Tennessee Bankers Association conducts the school in cooperation with the bankers associations in Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Mississippi.
More than 1,600 students have graduated from the program since its inception in 1987.
“The Southeastern School of Consumer Credit is a highly valuable school for consumer loan officers for banks of all sizes. In addition to the comprehensive class curriculum, students have the opportunity to meet peers and develop professional friendships and relationships they will find beneficial throughout their careers,” said Craig Holland, 2010-11 chairman of the TSSCC board of trustees and Williamson County president of First Farmers and Merchants Bank in Franklin.
Established in 1987, The Southeastern School of Consumer Credit is designed to increase banker knowledge of consumer lending as a retail banking function and a source of income for the bank.
It addresses the managerial aspect of consumer lending operations, especially how the bank’s loan portfolio can increase profitability and improve competitive position.
In addition, the program emphasizes the development of both administrative and human relations skills to equip students to manage bank assets and meet customers’ financial needs.
The school’s curriculum incorporates more than 35 hours of classroom instruction. The program covers 17 courses arranged into five course clusters — Trends in Banking, Retail Credit Analysis and Underwriting, the Lending Process, Asset Management and Managing Changes in Regulatory Compliance.
