Alumni Ambassador Program
The Alumni Ambassador Program is an extension of the Alumni Association that offers GSBC alumni incentives in exchange for working to support the school in their local banking communities throughout the year.
Meet Our Ambassadors
GSBC has been an invaluable capstone to my career in community banking, and has allowed me to appreciate and offer new perspectives to our bank and the communities we serve. It’s a privilege to give back as an Alumni Ambassador, and encourage other Ohio bankers to “Go West!” to take their personal and professional development to the next level.
I've always been an advocate of GSBC and given the impact that is has had on my career, I'm excited to expose others to the same impact. I hope that I can utilize my Girl Banker platform and social media presence to tell women in banking all over the country what GSBC can offer them!
GSBC helped me become a better community banker and I look forward to educating others regarding all this school has to offer. The classes are informative, relevant and key to growing in this industry. That being said, by far my favorite part were the relationships I made that will truly last a lifetime. Spending two weeks in Boulder during July wasn’t bad either! My time there was invaluable and I am honored to serve as an ambassador for this wonderful organization.
My time at GSBC was awesome for my continued development as a community banker and, I believe, a big reason that I am in the role that I fill today. I am hopeful that my role as an ambassador will result in more east coast bankers becoming familiar with GSBC and taking that next step in their careers as well.
GSBC was a tremendous experience for both my personal and professional growth. Not only did my time at GSBC equip me with invaluable tools for advancement in my banking career, but the relationships I established will undoubtedly last a lifetime. I’m thrilled to be able to represent GSBC as an Alumni Ambassador so that I can encourage and inspire other Oklahoma Bankers to participate in such a wonderful program. It will be an honor to play a small role in showing others all GSBC has to offer.
Catering to the core of what we all expect community banking to be, GSBC opens doors for bankers both personally and professionally. The opportunities and connections it has created for me will last throughout my career. Serving as an Alumni Ambassador provides me a platform to advocate for community banking and allows me to serve as a resource to fellow, Texas bankers. It is a privilege to share the impact GSBC’s program can make.”
GSBC was an excellent choice for me when choosing a school to expand my knowledge of the banking industry. I immediately noticed the high quality of the classes, the beauty of the campus and the fantastic community of Boulder, Colorado. I made connections with other professionals in the banking industry that I will cherish for the rest of my career, and friends that I will cherish for life. I am proud to represent the school as an ambassador, as I believe the benefit to the students who attend and their employers is measurable and tangible. GSBC helps make better bankers, better regulators and better members of our communities, and I’m honored to represent the school as an Ambassador.
I’m excited to be a GSBC Alumni Ambassador to let other community bankers, especially in the South, know that GSBC offers the best program based around what we do and how we are challenged as community banks. It’s not just theoretical knowledge, its real-world and current to what your bank may be faced with. I realized the benefits of my education at GSBC as soon as I came back from my first year and it only grew from there. The people I met and the relationships I developed will be with me for the rest of my life. That network of support and shared knowledge from across the county is invaluable.
Being a GSBC Ambassador presents a unique opportunity to continuously share my experience with prospective students. Specifically, I gained increased knowledge, heard new/different perspectives, engaged with knowledgeable / helpful experts and gained an appreciation for the challenges in Community Banking. I consider it an honor to represent the program and use my influence to encourage others to expand their knowledge via GSBC programs.
Coming from the regulatory perspective, the opportunity to interact with community bankers from across the country over three years was an incredibly impactful professional development experience. My time at GSBC continues to benefit me in my work every day. As an alumni ambassador, I hope to serve as a bridge between the regulatory and banking communities and encourage others to engage in the dialogue that makes GSBC so great.
Attending GSBC has been very beneficial to my banking career. Additionally, the friendships and connections I made will last a lifetime. In my role as an ambassador I hope to encourage more Oklahoma community bankers to attend and experience all GSBC has to offer.
