|What our attendees are saying...|
"The School has been one of the most valuable learning experiences of my career. The opportunity to network and share information in and out of the classroom is tremendous,
and continues long after graduation!" -- Chris Russell, Vice President, Marketing Director, First Community Bank of Palm Beach County, Wellington, FL
"Having been in bank marketing for 13 years when I enrolled in the School of Bank Marketing and Management, I feared a lot of the information would be repetitive for me. How wrong I was! No matter how many conferences you've attended, you'll learn more at the ABA School of Bank Marketing and Management than all the conferences combined. The most important part of the school to me was the emphasis on profitability and management. I'm much more confident about my marketing decisions and my credibility within the bank has gone way up!" -- Donna Kimes, Vice President of Marketing, Farmers and Merchants Bank
"I can now intelligently talk with management about spread, ROE, our income and expense statements, and pricing strategy. Year Two of the ABA School of Bank Marketing and Management took me to a whole new level, and made me so much more promotable within our bank group. With training, I think I could tackle most anything. Thanks for making that possible!" -- Tiffanie Conchola, Marketing Director, Arvest Bank, Bentonville, AR
