Hotel Scam!

Thank you for your support of community banking and your anticipated attendance in Galveston at our annual Convention in September.  

It’s been brought to our attention that someone claiming to be an IBAT employee has been calling about housing for the event. 
This is a SCAM! ALL hotel room reservations must be made through IBAT, using either IBAT's online registration site or the print registration form. 

If you are contacted by any other outside company claiming to be making hotel reservations for the IBAT Convention, DO NOT REPLY.  These companies have NOT been hired by IBAT to take room reservations for the 2015 Convention!

If you have any questions about the IBAT Convention, please do not hesitate to email or call us at 800-749-4228.
