Julie Lanning, President & CEO, First National Bank of Creston in Creston, IA, has been named the chair of the Iowa Bankers Association's Advocacy and Policy Committee. The committee, composed of senior level bank management professionals from across the state, is responsible for developing and guiding the association’s legislative and advocacy efforts.
“We’re pleased to have Julie leading our IBA Advocacy and Policy Committee. Her expertise and commitment will provide direction for the association as it identifies and develops solutions for various policy issues,” said Sharon Presnall, senior vice president of government relations and compliance at the IBA. “The association is engaged in a wide variety of legislative issues, and it is vitally important that bankers themselves set the direction for the industry because they are in the best position to understand how various laws, rules and regulations impact their banks, communities and customers.”
Lanning assumed the role as President & CEO at First National Bank in Creston in April 2022. She has worked for the organization for 33 years in operations and finance. Lanning serves on the Board of Trustees at Greater Regional Health in Creston and is active in the Creston community. “I’m looking forward to sharing ideas from southwest Iowa through a well-respected organization that has a direct connection to our statewide and federally elected leaders.”
