“These bright young professionals represent the future of Maryland’s banking industry. I look forward to watching them grow over the next year and look forward to working with them, equipping them with all the tools necessary to become the effective leaders that we know they can be.”

Now in its 7th year, the Maryland Bankers Association’s (MBA) Emerging Leaders “Champion” Program is a structured leadership development program designed specifically for Maryland’s banking community. As one of the MBA’s flagship programs, the Emerging Leaders program is designed to foster diversity and inclusion, equipping all the participants with the skills they need to become “Champions” within the banking community by facilitating meetings with Maryland and national industry leaders.

The cohort consists of outstanding individuals who were identified and selected by their banks as future industry leaders. During the year-long program, the cohort will attend leadership development, peer networking, and knowledge sessions with industry, community, and advocacy leaders. Over the next year the cohort of 19 will attend seven different “anchor meetings” with thought-leaders in the banking industry, at locations across Maryland. Additionally, participants will complete a professional development, advocacy, and Emerging Leaders community service project.

The beginning of the 2022 cohort’s program is just another example of the commitment the MBA has to serving Maryland’s banking community.

“It is always exciting to welcome the new cohort of Emerging Leaders,” said MBA president Ramon Looby. “These bright young professionals represent the future of Maryland’s banking industry. I look forward to watching them grow over the next year and look forward to working with them, equipping them with all the tools necessary to become the effective leaders that we know they can be.”
