Our BEST Fans:

In a small organization like ours, most folks wear several hats. With BEST we can send them to one event where all their different responsibilities are covered. The seminars cover timely topics and current events. The networking is a huge benefit, as well as the opportunity to meet one-on-one with vendors. It’s a great opportunity to get your mid-level staff out of the bank to see what’s out there.
—Sue Eno, President and CEO,
Citizens National Bank of Cheboygan

             The BEST conference provides terrific learning opportunities for our team. The many different educational tracks address topics that are current and relevant for specific lines of business. Each year it is my goal to leave the conference with two or three takeaway ideas to bring back to the bank and share with the rest of the team.
—Vicki Franzen, Senior Vice President, Monroe Bank & Trust

            I think the BEST Conference is a great success with continued growth in attendance.  It addresses issues that are very relevant for the ever-changing and dynamic world of banking. The conference is very productive in terms of networking, discussion of best practices as well as latest approaches to today’s problems. We are able to go back to the office and put new information into practice for the benefit of our customers and staff.
