2016 Bluegrass Community Bankers Association Annual Convention

Dear Kentucky Banker,

I would like to extend a personal invitation for you to attend the 2016 Bluegrass Community Bankers Association’s annual convention to be held at the Griffin Gate Marriott in Lexington, Kentucky August 28 - 30, 2016. As we look back on the past year, it has brought much needed focus on the importance of our community banks.

We will kick off with a Welcome Reception on Sunday evening. On Monday we will run concurrent sessions of important industry topics that you can choose to attend at different times. We will be hosting a Reception and Silent Auction on Monday evening with proceeds from the silent auction being used to fund the Charles D. Bennett Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded annually at our convention and allows a banker to attend a certified banking school free of charge. During the Silent Auction, there will be entertainment by “The Wooks”. Our keynote speaker will be Keith Matheny, “The Mentalist”. There will also be a golf outing on Tuesday morning if you would like to play.

Bluegrass Community Bankers Association is your state affiliate for Independent Community Bankers of America and we need your support. We will have sessions that will provide important information for your board of directors and senior management as well as a chance to network with other community bankers.

Join me in Lexington for a convention that will be well worth your time and money! I hope to see you there.

Billy Bingham
BBA President
