July 05--Michele Weaver, senior internal auditor with Unison Bank in Jamestown, recently graduated from the Dakota School of Banking sponsored by the North Dakota Bankers Association and endorsed by the South Dakota Bankers Association.

The school trained 57 bank personnel in its 41st year. The school has been held at the University of Jamestown's campus since 1997.

"This school is designed to meet the needs of bank personnel," said Dorothy Lick, NDBA senior vice president of education. "It provides focused education for bankers who seek a better understanding of the industry and advancement in their careers."

Students are enrolled for two years, attending the school one week each summer. The first-year session provides a general overview of the banking industry and the departments that make up a bank. The second-year session builds on the general banking knowledge gained in the first year and adds a computerized bank management simulation to reinforce technical and functional management skills.

"The Dakota School of Banking was a terrific experience, from the learning opportunities to networking with colleagues," Weaver said. "I look forward to putting my new knowledge to work."

Teachers at the school include bankers, attorneys, accountants and financial industry consultants. Sessions combined lecture, hands-on activities and testing.
