Refocusing on the future of Arkansas Banking

The Arkansas Bankers Association Annual Convention tradition began 130 years ago with the inaugural “Convention of Arkansas Bankers.” What ABA’s first Chairman of the Board, Colonel Logan H. Roots, said then still holds true today, “Attendees will go home having reaped a harvest that will repay them for the journey.”

This year will be extra special for a few reasons. First, we say farewell to our own Commissioner Franks. Her 40 year journey with the Arkansas State Bank Department has been amazing, and we hope you will tune in for her final Day with the Commissioner portion of our event. We are also excited to share with you that we have reFOCUSed this year's Convention and are going virtual! And while it may be virtual, the Convention is the same informative, educational programming that you have come to expect from our association. We even have a few surprises in store for you!

What to Expect

We have partnered with Matchbox Virtual Media to offer the 2020 ABA Virtual Convention, here's what you need to know about the event:

  1. Register online for Convention just like normal.
  2. You will receive an automated email confirmation indicating you have registered.
  3. Prior to the conference you will receive specific details on how to participate!
It's that easy!
