What People Are Saying

I consider the GSBC workshop as one of the better educational events I've attended. It's focused on community banks, and the program offers a unique blend of insightful investment portfolio management topics combined with sessions on economic and industry-focused issues. Speakers are both informed and good at making presentations. Finally, the GSBC staff does a great job of incorporating time for participants to interact with one another. I highly recommend the workshop to community bank CEOs and CFOs.

GSBC’s annual workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn from thought leaders in the industry. Through this seminar you will be exposed to strategies to increase your bank’s ROA and ROE as well as possibilities for increasing the yield on your investment portfolio. The presenters will help you understand more fully the complex requirements for interest rate risk management and other pressing regulatory issues that may arise in dealing with your investment portfolio. The venue is always top notch, and Las Vegas is a great destination for a conference. As a long-time attendee, I have always left with invaluable information and new friends in the industry that I can lean on for advice.
