Lansing, Kansas – July 25, 2023: The Catalyzer President and CEO, Stephen Ingalls, will deliver a talk at the annual convention for the Independent Community Bankers Association of New Mexico (ICBA/NM) on July 28. Ingalls will speak about the impact of Generation Z’s growing presence in the workforce.

“On the one hand, Gen Z is the first generation that grew up with the internet and portable technology; they are “digital natives.” Ingalls continued, “On the other hand, some of their values, particularly ‘slow living,’ can frustrate leaders from earlier generations.”

“That friction cuts both ways,” he said. “We will be unpacking that tension and more in Ruidoso,” he said, referring to the city whose convention center will host the community bankers. This will be the ICBA/NM’s 39th annual event.

Ingalls will present during the 10:45 a.m. session on Friday.
