Show and Share

The most valuable part of this conference is what we learn from our peers. Please join us this year in sharing your triumphs—and perhaps failures—that your team worked on this past year at your association. These can be videos, presentations, handouts, publications, or any marketing and communication efforts you think would be helpful to share with the group.

Please upload your files to our share folder link below, and indicate which state you represent in the file name. Can’t wait to see everyone’s work!


Dietary Concerns

If you have any specific dietary needs that we should know about, email Matt Radford.

Non SBA Guests

Several of you have inquired about “plus-ones” attending the social functions. Based on our costs, Wednesday events are $68 and Thursday events are $82 (for $150 total). Email Matt Radford ASAP if you are planning to bring someone to one social function or both.

Possible Attendance Fee

The Tennessee Bankers Association has solicited sponsors to cover the cost of the Conference; however, if costs are higher than anticipated, a slight attendance fee may be required. While the TBA does not anticipate this happening, by attending the conference, you agree to pay fees that may be required to cover the cost.
