Our BEST Fans:

 The BEST conference provides terrific learning opportunities for our team. The many different educational tracks address topics that are current and relevant for specific lines of business. Each year it is my goal to leave the conference with two or three takeaway ideas to bring back to the bank and share with the rest of the team.
