Thank you to everyone who attended IBAT's 31st Annual Leadership Conference last week in Galveston. This year’s conference included more than 225 attendees (64 first-timers) and their families, who connected with one another through focused leadership training and collaborative conversations on hot topics in the areas of lending, sales and marketing.
Congratulations to Kevin Monk, Senior Vice President and Senior Operations Officer at Alliance Bank, for receiving the 2016 Excellence in Leadership Award. Monk served on the IBAT Leadership Division Board of Directors from 2005 to 2015, including a year as Chair. He currently serves on the IBAT Services Inc. Board of Directors. In addition to his IBAT service, Monk is an active volunteer in his community, holding leadership roles with Lake Country CASA and Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce.
“Kevin has his priorities in the right place – his faith, his family and his work, and he walks that every day,” said Tom Sellers, President and Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Bank.
IBAT was also pleased to honor Five*Star Award winners: Fenimore, Kay, Harrison & Ford, LLP; Advantage Health Plans Trust; and BKD. Additionally, congratulations to Ryan Morris of First State Bank for winning the Disney Adventure Raffle grand prize. Our congratulations also go to Sam Nunn of Citizens Bank, Mack Neff of Integrity Bank and Angie Brown of First National Bank for winning other great prizes in the raffle. Thanks to all who supported the IBAT Education Foundation through this raffle, which raised nearly $20,000.
Finally, the ever-popular IBAT Money Camp video is now online. Photos from this year’s event will be linked in next week’s Bottom Line. Save the date for the 32nd Annual Leadership Conference at Horseshoe Bay Resort, June 21-24, 2017
