Dear Members,

This time of year brings a flutter of activity, both in our respective offices and in the planning efforts of FBC staff and volunteers. Holiday events, educational forums and, of course, the upcoming Generations Conference, are keeping us all busy. I am delighted to share a few details of what’s in store for FBC in 2018:

In an effort to make the most efficient use of your time while still bringing you face-to-face with industry experts that can effectively address your specific needs and challenges, we are consolidating our traditional single-topic events into two ½ -day sessions. These sessions will be held once in spring and one in the fall.  We will continue our quarterly meetings for Affinity Groups throughout the year, and of course we will host our annual River Cats Game and Holiday Social. We hope you will join us.  Stay tuned for details in our email updates and newsletters as the schedules finalize.

Also, in response to our dynamic keynote speaker and breakout session line-up, registrations and sponsorships continue to come in for January’s Generations Conference.  We have limited space available and we encourage you to advantage of this local opportunity to hear from industry leaders on the issues that matter to you…succession planning, family conflict, taxes and estates, and more.  Remember, we are now offering “family ticket packages” that will enable you to bring multiple members of your family and team to the event at a discounted rate.  If you are interested in joining the planning effort for next year’s conference, please contact incoming Conference Chair Amber Holwell.

Wishing you and yours a festive and safe holiday season!

Steve Fleming, River City Bank
