Gov. Deal to Address GBA Members

Governor Nathan Deal will be among the state officials speaking to GBA members during our Legislative/Economic Forum Jan. 15 at the

Reserve a room by calling the hotel directly at 404.897.5053. The events start at 3 p.m. with our Legislative/Economic Forum. On the agenda are Roger Tutterow, professor of economics at Mercer University, for an economic update, John Ashford, Chairman and CEO of The Hawthorn Group, LC, with his analysis of the current Washington environment and predictions for the 2014 election cycle, and Commissioner Kevin Hagler with the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance.

AIB Diplomas and Certificates

Certificates build the skills necessary for a specific position in the bank and can be taken entirely online as a certificate curriculum. Diplomas, which take longer to complete, provide broader and more in-depth coverage of banking as a profession.
