SVCB loan officers finish school

SPRING VALLEY — Julie Eilers and Erin Pinter, loan officers at Spring Valley City Bank, recently graduated from Community Bankers School.

Held in Bloomington at Illinois Wesleyan University, the school addressed the important elements of community banking. It consisted of a two-week intensive course that was offered in a two-year time frame, one week each year.

Mary Sulser, CBAI chairman and executive vice president of Buena Vista National Bank in Chester, said, “Graduates are in a better position to advance their careers in banking and to contributed to the overall successful operations of their banks and community.”

CBAI, headquartered in Springfield, is a statewide association representing nearly 400 community banks in Illinois.
