Darla Clark named a 2013 Women Worth Watching by Diversity Journal 
We are pleased to announce that Executive Vice President Darla Clark has been named a 2013 Women Worth Watching by the Diversity Journal, a national magazine focusing on diversity/inclusion in business, government, non-profit, higher education and military settings. According to the publication, it is teamwork and leading by example that distinguishes Darla and the other women honored. 
 
Darla received a full page profile in which she shared sage advice and great insights, including: 
 
“I always tell my employees or others who are looking to enter into a new field or role to ask successful people what they did to get where they are – the answer may surprise you.” 
 
Darla’s path to a senior leadership role at Regents Bank started as a bank teller at the Bank of Hawaii.  She worked during the day and attended college at night to earn a business degree. When she entered the banking industry in the early 1970s, women did not typically have management positions. 
 
“Success evolves from building relationships. I also believe completely in a philosophy that was best phrased by President Ronald Reagan: ‘There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit.’” 
 
Darla leads by example. She acts not only as a banker to her clients but also as a consultant.  Utilizing this consultative strategy is a key component to Darla maintaining strong business relationships, many for 20 plus years. 
 
“To stay competitive, you must work harder than everyone else.  Keep abreast of political and economic news that affects your industry and your clients.” 
 
Darla, like all of the Regents Bank professionals, understands the significance the economy and politics has on our clients’ businesses.  To be a trusted advisor, one must understand all aspects of the challenges our clients are facing. 
 
“Create your own destiny – be proactive in asking for and accomplishing what you want.” 
 
Congratulations, Darla, on being a Women Worth Watching and thank you for your contributions to Regents Bank and the San Diego Community.

MONEY MATTERS:  
Make it Count - Financial Education for Teens 
As bankers, we know the importance of instilling good financial habits at an early age.  That is why we are excited to be associated with Money Matters: Make It Count, a national finance program for teens created in collaboration with Boys & Girls Clubs of America. The program is geared toward educating teens on the important and unavoidable financial hurtles they will encounter through their teenage years into adulthood. 
 
Money Matters promotes financial responsibility and independence among Boys & Girls Club members ages 13 to 18. Participants learn how to manage a checking account, create a budget, save and invest, start small businesses and pay for college.  The Money Matters website helps teens build their money management skills through interactive activities, games and tools such as a savings and financial aid calculator to help them plan for college. 
 
The Money Matters program was the topic of discussion at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Southwest Washington’s Youth Partnership Luncheon on October 16 and of which Regents Bank was proud to have once again sponsored – our fifth straight year doing so! We value our relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs and feel privileged to  help with this event. 
 
The Clubs provide Clark County youth with safe and positive places to go, equipped with supportive and caring adults, structured programs, the opportunity to set goals and the tools to achieve them. 
 
At this year’s luncheon, Regents Bank’s Executive Vice President and Regional Manager Tami Nesburg had the honor of introducing the luncheon’s keynote speaker — Ms. Carrie Schwab-Pomerantz. Ms. Schwab-Pomerantz is president of the Charles Schwab Foundation, a private, nonprofit organization funded by The Charles Schwab Corporation whose mission is to help people achieve financial well-being. 
 
Under her leadership, the Foundation has established the Money Matters program. 
 
At Regents Bank, we have witnessed the success of youth at the Boys & Girls Club of Southwest Washington, in school and in our community. We are proud to support such an important and effective organization. 
 
 
Clark County’s 2013 First Citizen Award Presentation 
Tuesday marked a very special day for our Vancouver, Washington branch.  As a long-time supporter of the Clark County First Citizen award, we are honored once again to have been a part of this 74-year old tradition of celebrating Clark County’s community leaders by the Community Foundation of Southwest Washington. Recipients are chosen for their accomplishments and contributions to the community in a number of areas. 
 
This year’s recipient is Robert “Bob” Schaefer, a practicing attorney, former state legislator and civic leader. 
 
Mr. Schaefer is an incredible role model for those looking to make a difference in their community.  He grew up in Vancouver and has woven his parents’ value of civic involvement into his life for more than 50 years. After receiving his law degree, he worked as a deputy prosecuting attorney for Clark County and then served four terms in the House of Representatives. As both a legislator and lobbyist, Mr. Schaefer has won numerous boons for the southwest Washington region including the attraction and retention of many technology giants. He has been an advocate for growing an educated workforce and co-chaired the committee that developed the plan for the creation of Washington State University Vancouver. Over the years, his reputation for integrity, fair-mindedness, wisdom and collaboration have landed him on numerous boards dealing with such important issues as education, economic development and healthcare enhancement. 
 
Regents Bank’s Executive Vice President and Regional Manager Tami Nesburg was on hand at the ceremony to present Mr. Schaefer with a $1,000 contribution to the charity of his choice.  He selected the Clark College Foundation and Open House Ministries. 
 
Regents Bank is proud to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2013 First Citizen award and to take part in honoring Mr. Schaefer.
