Updated: June 11, 2020 — Workshop on Community Bank Investments Previously Scheduled for Sept. 2020 Now Postponed

Dear Supporters,

As the COVID-19 situation continues to unfold, we at GSBC want to assure our students, alumni and supporters that we are closely considering the appropriate actions for each of our upcoming programs, and are planning accordingly to ensure the safety of our constituents and the general public.

Please find a brief update on the current status of our upcoming 2020 programs below:

70th Annual School Session – CANCELLED; Community Bankers Summit – 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. View GSBC President Tim Koch’s message to students regarding tuition and projects:

Executive Development Institute for Community Bankers – NEW DATE: October 18-21, 2020

Due to the importance of face-to-face interaction and peer group sharing in the Executive Development Institute for Community Bankers, along with consideration of the changes in participants’ bank operations we have decided to postpone sessions 7.1 and 6.3 to October 18-21, 2020.

Community Bank Investments School – POSTPONED: TBD

Like many other universities, the CU System which includes CU Denver and CU Boulder, has cancelled face-to-face classroom presentations and will be offering courses via online delivery until further notice. To offer the Community Bank Investments School effectively, we need access to CU Denver’s trading room with the Bloomberg terminals. We have thus decided to postpone the May 17-21 program until CU Denver re-opens its trading room.

Workshop on Community Bank Investments – POSTPONED: TBD

Due to impending travel restrictions for attendees and unforseen limits on group gatherings in Las Vegas, the 2020 Workshop on Community Bank Investments, previously scheduled for September 16-18, has been postponed. A new date is to be determined.

We at GSBC remain committed to serving you in the best ways possible, and wish your family, employees and customers good health in the months to come.

Please contact our office with any questions or concerns.


Timothy W. Koch
