The Northern New England School of Banking is one of the oldest banking schools in the nation. Founded in 1953, the School was developed to offer a program on current issues in banking designed for both junior and senior officers of commercial banks in Vermont and New Hampshire and was sponsored by the banking associations of the two states.
In the mid-1960's Maine joined the School, the name was changed to the Northern New England School of Banking and the School was held at the Kellogg Center for Continuing Education at the University of New Hampshire until 2010. The 2010 School is being held at the Sheraton Harborside in Portsmouth, New Hampshire with subsequent year's locations not yet determined.
Responding to the changing needs of bankers, the School shifted its emphasis to a program in general banking geared to supervisors and junior officers and is considered a stepping stone to the Stonier Graduate School of Banking.
The School's Board of Trustees is comprised of the Presidents of the Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont Bankers Associations as well as designated bankers from each state. The Vermont Bankers Association is the School's Registrar.
