Registration open for 2019 OBA Senior Management Conference

The Oklahoma Bankers Association 2019 Community Bankers Leadership & Senior Management Conference is scheduled for April 7-9 at the Sheraton Grand at Wild Horse Pass in Phoenix, Arizona.

One of the key benefits in the conference will be talking with your peers. Attendees at the OBA 2019 Community Bankers Leadership & Senior Management Conference will be surrounded by those with similar titles, similar workloads, similar problems and likely solutions to issues that can be just as similar.

If you have any questions or want to get signed up, contact the OBA’s education department at 405-424-5252, or download a brochure and registration form by clicking here!

OBA raising money for governor’s Inaugural Ball

Bankers have a chance to go together (or contribute directly) to our collective effort to raise at least $10,000 to show industry support for our new governor. This amount will help us sponsor a table at the Inaugural Ball to be held on Jan. 14, 2019.

Each contributing bank – as well as every bank that sponsors its own table – will be recognized at this gala event! And – importantly – corporate contributions are permitted!

The OBA plans to contribute as well, but the most important element is recognition for each bank that contributes both at the Ball itself and beforehand to individually show as many banks participating as we can.

Will you help us? Please? Contact roger@oba.com for more info.
