70th Annual School Session Cancelled

The University of Colorado Boulder has cancelled on-campus programming through July 2020, including GSBC’s 70th Annual School Session and the Community Bankers Summit & Alumni Reunion. We have consulted with our Board of Trustees and Alumni Advisory Board on the matter of postponement, and the overwhelming consensus was that the Annual School Session is delivered at its maximum value in person, not online. Thus, the next session will be hosted July 18-30, 2021.

I explored many different banking schools and ultimately chose GSBC for its dedication to community banking. GSBC’s knowledgeable faculty provide an amazing educational experience; one which I was able to translate directly to my position, bettering my institution overall. I highly recommend taking advantage of the exceptional experience offered by GSBC.

The Executive Development Institute has assisted me with taking a more holistic approach to banking and leadership development. Being able to communicate and collaborate with like-minded professionals and staff has made for a tremendous experience and has already started to impact decisions within our institution. I am looking forward to the future sessions where I can continue to build and develop my skills for the future of our organization.
