New Value Options - Credit Conference - Dec. 10-11, Atlanta
With a superstar agenda featuring updates on housing, CRE, the economy and much more, we want to make sure this year’s GBA Credit Conference is available for as many people as possible. Because we’ll livestream the conference, we’ve added registration options to make it more convenient and affordable for more bankers to participate. The options are:
  • In-Person PLUS All-Access Virtual Pass – This option allows one person to attend in person but adds an affordable way for everyone else at the bank to attend one or more of the sessions from their office or remote work site. $495
  • All-Access Virtual Pass – One registration price gets you a pass to share with everyone at the bank to see one or more of the streamed sessions wherever it is most convenient. $495
Single-person registrations for in-person and virtual attendance are also available at $395 per person. See all the details and access registration here.
Choosing the Right Digital Marketing Channels for Your Bank – Webinar Series, Released Dec. 2
This OnDemand series presented by the North Carolina Bankers Association will be released on Wednesday, Dec. 2, and divided into three segments. Attendees will be able to download and keep the recordings. Finding the right marketing tactics for your bank can be a challenge, even more so with a limited budget and competitive ecosystem. In this webinar series, attendees will learn about frameworks and tools that they can implement to make the most of the marketing budgets – and in particular, build the bank’s digital presence to help win new business online. Bank CEOs, presidents and marketing professionals will all benefit. Learn more and register here.
Business Cash Flow Analysis - Three-Part Webinar, Dec. 2-4
Join Mike Allen of Cadence Bank, a faculty member of the Georgia Banking School with more than 40 years of industry experience, for an introduction and practical approach to business cash flow analysis at GBA’s new three-part Business Cash Flow Analysis Webinar Dec. 2-4. This program is designed for small business lenders, commercial lenders and credit analyst/underwriters. This webinar will assist those bankers who originate and underwrite small business and commercial loans by providing a framework of how to approach the technical and non-technical components to an analysis, develop an understanding of what the key points of interest are relative to various requests, and ultimately determine a borrower’s capacity to repay your loan.
