Stephen Clements, Executive Vice President of Citizens First Bank, graduated April 21, 2021, from the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado’s (GSBC) Executive Development Institute for Community Bankers® program held in Broomfield, Colorado.
Executive Development Institute for Community Bankers® (EDI) participants are up-and-coming C-level executives whose work efforts influence the future direction of their banks. EDI equips these community bank leaders for success with extensive leadership and bank management training, including 10-plus hours of individual executive coaching.
Clements was one of 12 community bankers who graduated from the 19-month program, which concluded April 21, 2021.
“EDI is filling a crucial void in banking education by offering an avenue for banks to succession plan with peace of mind that the futures of their organizations are in good hands,” said GSBC President Tim Koch. “It is reassuring to see Stephen’s passion for the industry, his community and his customers. GSBC is proud to have been a part of his development.”
Clements commented, “I enjoyed the intensity of this training.  EDI has assisted me in taking a more holistic approach to banking and leadership development.  Being able to collaborate with my classmates and the EDI faculty has made for a tremendous experience and has already started to impact decisions within our institution.”
GSBC will welcome back the 11 members of the seventh cohort of EDI participants in October 2021 and is currently enrolling for a new cohort to begin at that time. Visit for more information.
