Bank Presidents Seminar


2023 Bank Presidents Seminar
Montage Laguna Beach
Laguna Beach, CA

Bank Presidents Seminar is the only Western Bankers program exclusively for bank presidents and CEOs.

Senior leaders of Western region banks are invited to attend and share in informative sessions and networking opportunities to discuss the ever-changing landscape of the financial services arena at the beautiful Montage Resort in Laguna Beach.

In 2022, we opened this event up to non-member bank executives for a chance to experience on of the association’s premier events and we will do the same in 2023.

Join us January 10–13, 2023 in Laguna Beach at the beautiful Montage Laguna Beach for our 2023 Bank Presidents Seminar.
