The banking industry today is dramatically different from what it was five years ago, and succeeding in this marketplace requires a much different strategic plan.

For the past 20 years at Acquire or Be Acquired, bank executives, board members and industry experts have debated – and disagreed – on exactly how big a bank needs to be to survive in today’s operational and regulatory environment.  For our 21st annual event, we focus on banks seeking to make deals – many as buyers and some as sellers.

Beyond the informative sessions, you will have the opportunity to meet with peers from across the country and receive candid advice from experienced bankers and advisers in the legal, accounting and consulting arenas.

Whether you are considering growing through acquisition or planning an exit strategy – you are a small community bank or a large commercial institution – this event offers a variety of breakout sessions and discussion groups on topics ranging from strategic growth planning to managing the M&A process – and the venue allows for a perfect setting for a board retreat!

After reviewing the agenda, we hope you and your team will join us January 25-27 in Scottsdale.  If you have any questions or need additional information, please contact our events department at [email protected] or by calling (877) 397-7595.
