Bank Presidents Seminar


2024 Bank Presidents Seminar
Montage Laguna Beach
Laguna Beach, CA

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

Bank presidents and CEOs 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 2023, 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 2024.

Join us January 10–11, 2024 in Laguna Beach at the beautiful Montage Laguna Beach for our 2024 Bank Presidents Seminar.

Check out all the great details regarding the hotel down below.

Conference registration will be opening soon…
