Women in Banking Conference - Aug. 11-12, Chateau Elan Winery & Resort, Braselton
Calling all women bankers and Associate Members! Be sure your late summer plans include GBA’s annual Women in Banking Conference for the opportunity to meet, learn, share and network with fellow women bankers from across our state. The conference agenda is taking shape, and will include an encore appearance from Travelers’ Joan Woodward, who will share her economic, public policy and political outlook. GBA’s SVP of Government Relations Elizabeth Chandler will give us the 4-1-1 on all things GBA and an Executive Leadership Panel will tackle issues such as career pathing, onboarding, the Great Resignation, succession planning and more. We'll also have sessions on CRM and Project Management. And, our closing session will feature Laura Whitaker, CEO of ESP (Extra Special People), who was thrust into a leadership role at the age of 19 and has an incredible story to share about her journey and growth as a person and leader.
