Rhodes named division chair for Community Bankers Association
Marlene Rhodes, market president for HeritageBank of the South, has been named the Division Four Chair for the Community Bankers Association.
Rhodes was formerly active in Coweta, working with Flag Bank and McIntosh Commercial Bank.
In her role as Division Four Chair, Rhodes will lead the CBA Leadership Division Board of Directors during the 2013/2014 term. The Leadership Division of CBA was created in 1980 to educate and inform future bank leaders on the current issues in the banking industry and to prepare them for further leadership roles in their institutions.
The Leadership Division works closely with many schools and organizations throughout communities to educate the public on community banking, careers in banking and other financial topics. One of the main principles of the Leadership Division is to promote economic education by teaching students about saving, spending, interest, credit and other related issues.
“We’re pleased to welcome new and returning members to the CBA Leadership Division Board of Directors,” said Rob Braswell, president and CEO of the Community Bankers Association of Georgia. “With such a talented and motivated group of community bankers on the board, we’re anticipating a very exciting and productive year. We look forward to working with our dedicated board members throughout the year.”
