The 50- and 60-Year Clubs recognize bankers who have served in the banking industry for 50 and 60 years, respectively. These awards are presented during a special luncheon in conjunction with the WBA Bank Executives Conference. This year's conference will take place Feb. 3-5, 2020 in Wisconsin Dells. 

If your bank has individuals who should be recognized, please nominate them by completing the form found at If the individual is unable to attend the event, WBA staff will work with you to plan an event at your bank. 

Eligibility Rules
50- and 60-Year Club Membership

Any Wisconsin banker who is an active or retired officer, director, or employee and has completed 50-59 or 60-plus years of service. (U.S. Military service counts in the 50-year/60-year span if the proposed recipient was in banking both before and after time spent in the military.) Bankers enrolled in past WBA 50-Year Clubs are not eligible to be honored again in that specific award category, but may make an application to be honored at 60 or 70 years of service to the financial services industry. Before nominating an individual, we strongly suggest that you check with the person or your institution’s records to confirm dates of service as well as to determine if he/she has received the honor in a previous year.
