From February 5-7, Wisconsin's bank leaders gathered in Madison to learn about how the industry is transforming, and how they can prepare their banks for a disruptive future. The 450 attendees at this year's WBA Bank Executives Conferences also celebrated their peers' accomplishments and enjoyed networking time.
Many even participated in a photo scavenger hunt on their mobile devices via the conference app! The app also features the presentations from your favorite conference speakers, including Jill Castilla, Seth Mattison, and JP Nicols.
Conference attendees also heard from Governor Scott Walker, who helped kick off the conference. Gov. Walker also presented Joe Fazio, Commerce State Bank, West Bend, with a proclamation acknowledging Fazio's recent recognition as the ICBA Community Banker of the Year.
In addition, congratulations to this year's WBA Banker of the Year, Peter Knitt of Peoples State Bank, Wausau! Above: Knitt was honored during the conference, with his family in attendance.
