About the Program

Great learning opportunity, great value and great venue… 

This popular program, now in its 15th year, provides an unmatched opportunity to learn from senior regulators and expert banking attorneys as well as access to timely information on the economy, interest rate trends and investment strategies. In addition to the interactive general sessions, there are ample opportunities for networking and informal conversations with the speakers and other attendees.

The program will again be held in beautiful South Lake Tahoe, and the schedule allows for time to take advantage of an abundance of recreational opportunities.
