April 4-6, 2023 | Waco

A new event designed to meet the educational needs of community bankers in Texas and beyond. 

Hosted by the Education Foundation of the Independent Bankers Association of Texas, this two-and-a-half-day event is designed to help you Educate, Develop, Guide and Empower your team to take the next steps in their careers, for the good of your bank and its customers. 

The first two days will be bookended by general sessions featuring thought provoking and inspiring keynote speakers. During days 1 and 2, attendees will be able to pick from 48 breakout sessions, divided into six tracks: Information Security, Operations, Credit/Lending, Emerging Technology, Strategy, and Compliance.

Each breakout session will provide the opportunity to dive deep into hot topic issues related to each track. On the final morning, attendees will come back together for a half-day workshop focused on management and leadership growth. No matter what your role is in the bank, you will benefit from greater knowledge of how you can build a team and affect positive outcomes in your organization. Learn more.
