Banking is a relationship business and nothing helps build stronger relationships than meeting face-to-face. We enjoy every chance to talk with you personally, learn about your needs and discover means by which we can help make you more successful. To that end, in addition to our regular in-bank visits, we participate in banking seminars, conferences, committee meetings and conventions throughout the year. We look forward to seeing you at many of these events.

MORNING PROGRAM — We begin each event with brief presentations filled with valuable information on these topics:
Loans — All too often, community banks won’t even consider a loan opportunity simply because of the large size of the transaction. Mike DeLany will highlight why your bank should consider discussing these and many other opportunities with Bankers’ Bank, your trusted loan advisor.
Investments — It seems there are always plenty of economic experts who will gladly share their predictions on where interest rates are going. History has proven that these predictions are often wrong. What if bankers could successfully manage their investment portfolios without trying to predict interest rates? Using updated tools and proven strategies, Sam Devine will discuss how bankers can build investment portfolios that help their bank succeed in all interest rate scenarios.
Payments — Now, more than ever, banks are considering how technologies affect the all-important touch points with customers. Shane Bauer and Andy Hoffman will cover the present and future of payment technologies, from chip cards, same-day ACH and Fed Payments Improvement initiative to tokenization, crypto-currencies and more. The payments industry has gotten the attention of big players with fat wallets. Now is the time for community banks to build on their knowledge of how coming changes will affect their business model.
Leasing — Leasing continues to be an excellent way for banks to generate income, strengthen client relationships, and enhance new customer development. Mike LaSalle will share why a redesigned leasing product puts community banks at the forefront of multiple opportunities.
