Technology and Operations

This Committee acts as a sounding board for WBA in its development of new technology-oriented products and services. This group investigates new technological advancements as well as current technology and risk management issues that have the potential to impact the banking industry. The committee assists WBA in providing timely training on topics in the technology and bank operations fields. In addition, they play a key role in the planning of the annual WBA Secur-I.T. Conference. The group meets four times per year.
