CBAI bankers helped celebrate ICBA’s Midwest Community Bank Day at the historic Flossmoor Country Club. ICBA’s Midwest Regional Vice President David Hibbs welcomed the participants and provided an overview of the day’s events.
The program included a discussion of opportunities for community banks in SBA lending provided by G. Arne Monson of Holtmeyer & Monson; an update about payment trends, opportunities, and emerging technologies in debit and credit cards provided by Julie Hanson of ICBA Bancard & TCM Bank, N.A.; and a federal legislative and political update provided by Courtney Schoenborn Vice President of ICBA’s Political Programs.
After the presentations and a buffet lunch the participants hit the links to play this course which was honored with Golf Digest’s Renovation of the Year award. Flossmoor’s list of great players includes Chick Evans, Bobby Jones, Francis Oulmet, Jack Hutchinson and Max Marston.
CBAI’s members will have an opportunity to play this impressive course during CBAI’s 40th Annual Convention (September 18th-20th). CBAI thanks Greg Ohlendorf, president and CEO of First Community Bank and Trust in Beecher, for providing our members with this great opportunity to play at Flossmoor Country Club.
