"I look forward to attending the Alabama Banker's Advanced Lending Institute every year because of all of the 'real life' and practical information I learn from both the training professionals and my peers. This week is not just about going over the regulations and upcoming changes, it is also a week to communicate and collaborate with others who face the same issues and situations that I do."
Michele Durham, SouthPoint Bank

"Attending the Advanced Compliance College is definitely time well spent. The speakers are great and provide a wealth of information to help make our compliance programs better. The relaxed atmosphere is conducive for learning and sharing with your peers" 
Bobby Young, Bank of York

"The Advanced BSA Academy was very informative. All of the speakers were extremely knowledgeable and well worth the time going. The material was excellent, with modern examples. Our bank benefited greatly by having a representative there"
Allen Peterson, Community Neighbor Bank
