Opening a new deposit account constitutes entering into a contractual agreement. It is critical that both the new account representatives and the customer understand the bank’s obligations along with the terms and conditions the customer is being asked to accept. The ability to clearly explain the terms, conditions and benefits of the account significantly influences the customer’s impression of your bank and its services. In addition, there are updated regulatory requirements for obtaining beneficial ownership information on covered business accounts. 

The primary focus of this seminar will be on the lifecycle of the account including applicable Illinois and Federal requirements and regulations. This program will be interactive, encourage attendee participation, and provide training tools to enhance the performance of your daily responsibilities.
