Make the Most of Your Year With the FLD

The IBA Future Leadership Division is excited for 2024 and the new opportunities it will bring. There are many events to put on your calendar this year, including the FLD Networking Reception at Mega on May 7, FLD Leadership Conference on Aug. 1-2 and an FLD Topgolf Networking Lunch on Nov. 13. We’ll also host our regular FLD Networking Lunches and Coffee Club meetings this summer and fall, so be sure to sign up for FLD membership to stay updated throughout the year. FLD membership is a free benefit for all employees of any IBA member bank.

Hundreds of FLD members are making the Indiana banking industry thrive, and the FLD is a great place to connect with others like you who are interested in a long-term career in banking, many of whom are featured in the IBA’s Hoosiers IN Banking social media campaign. If you have news to share, we’re always happy to share that as well.

FLD Advisory Board Names Two New Members

The IBA Future Leadership Division welcomes two new members to its Advisory Board this year. The Board advises the IBA Board of Directors and staff on matters related to events, offerings and strategies for reaching next-generation bankers and bank leaders, acting as ambassadors for the banking industry.

Jordan Briggeman is an assistant vice president and business banker for Springs Valley Bank & Trust Company, Jasper, in the Washington area. He joined the bank in 2021. With over 10 years of experience as a commercial real estate agent and small business owner, Briggeman made the transition into banking and lending when the opportunity presented itself. He currently serves on the Daviess County Economic Development Corporation’s Board of Directors and sits on the board and finance committee of Our Community Foundation. He is an active member of the Washington Rotary Club as well as the varsity coach for Barr Reeve High School’s archery team. He also faithfully serves his church, Antioch Bible Church, and volunteers with Junior Achievement. Jordan earned a certificate in advanced commercial lending from the ABA. He initially skipped the textbooks, instead diving into depths of another kind — nine years in an underground coal mine, leading to a Ph.D. in grit and perseverance.

Brandi Dunn, a banking professional with more than eight years of experience, serves as assistant vice president of talent acquisition and engagement at The Farmers Bank, Frankfort. She volunteers with IBA’s Banking on Women and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) committees. Beyond her professional commitments, Brandi is a vital part of the Clinton Central Education Foundation and the Clinton County 4-H Council. Residing in rural Indiana, she navigates the demands of raising four active daughters with grace and determination.

FLD 2 LDP Scholarship Winner Announced

Collin Affolder, business banker with First Bank of Berne, has been awarded the 2023 Indiana Bankers Association FLD 2 LDP Scholarship.

Collin specializes in commercial lending, deposit growth and Treasury management services. He joined the company in 2018 and played an integral role in the establishment of its business team. He uses his expertise in public funds and CRE/C&I lending to add value to the bank’s most complex business clients. Collin holds a master’s degree from Purdue University and graduated from Bethel College. He is active in his community, serving on the boards of Junior Achievement (South Adams) and Building Futures of Adams County.
