A new three-year strategic plan will offer the North Dakota Bankers Association a map for both maximizing benefits to current members and attracting new members. The goal was to try to create a value-added plan for our members, said NDBA Chairman Mark DuBord. A draft of the new plan was sent to association members. DuBord said the NDBA board surveyed its members in the spring, then discussed results at a spring board meeting in Grand Forks. The next step was to bring in consultant Terry Saber as a facilitator to help draft the new plan. DuBord said the plan focuses on four issues: board governance; staff development and succession planning; financial management and education.
