2021 Senior Management Conference set this month in Las Vegas

Convention may be over, but there’s still one big event coming up soon! Pack your bags and mark your calendars because the Oklahoma Bankers Association 2021 Senior Management Forum is scheduled for June 20-22 at the Bellagio in Las Vegas.

This year’s conference features an exciting lineup of speakers, but one of the key benefits in the conference will be talking with your peers. Attendees at the OBA 2021 Senior Management Forum 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, click here for more information, or contact the OBA’s education department at 405-424-5252.
