Held every year over the past five years is the prestigious “Strategic Opportunities and M&A Conference. This conference is any and all things about community banking. This division of banking has come along way throughout the decades as community/regional banking is gained tremendous amounts of popularity from their innovative services. Hosted this year in “The Crescent City” of New Orleans and the event went off without a hitch. Bank Leaders, consultants, advisors, etc. met to discuss future plans of the industry. This year President and CEO of NexBank Capital, John Holt attended the service and was one of it’s guest speakers. Holt also joined in on the banker panel discussion for reinventing community banking.
