What People Are Saying

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.

EDI offers an excellent opportunity for individuals aspiring to executive level banking positions. The program is geared towards promoting personal growth and enhancing leadership skills, as well as providing opportunities to network with other bankers with the same aspirations. Working with a personal coach and a bank CEO mentor is unique to EDI, and is what makes this program a customized experience!
