SDTA Partners to Offer Trust Administration Courses

The South Dakota Trust Association is excited to partner with the University of Sioux Falls to offer classes in trust administration. These classes will begin during the 2024 spring semester. Trusts I will be the first offered and it’s a great foundation of South Dakota trust administration not only for those in college, but also for those who are new to the trust industry. The plan is to offer Trusts II and III in following semesters based on demand.
