Sue Basten of Washington State Bank, Washington, Iowa, has been named the chair of the Iowa Bankers Association’s (IBA) Management Committee.

The committee composed of bank management professionals from across the state, works to develop educational programs, best practices and products that enable senior-level bankers to enhance their bank and professional management skills.

“We’re pleased to have Sue leading our Management committee this year. Her expertise and commitment will provide direction for the IBA as it identifies the needs of senior-level bank officers and helps develop resources to accommodate those needs,” said Sharon Presnall, senior vice president of government relations andcompliance for the Iowa Bankers Association.

Basten is the Executive Vice President with the Washington State Bank, and is responsible for the lending department.

She stated that “I’m looking forward to sharing ideas from southeast Iowa through a well-respected organization that has a direct connection to our statewide and federally elected leaders.”
