2023 Convention Highlights

ICBC celebrated its 50th anniversary in September 2023 at The Hythe, Vail - Building on the past. Banking on the future. Thank you to our generous sponsors and to our exhibitors.

The celebration began on Wednesday with an annual favorite: the much anticipated golf scramble with plenty of mulligans to go around. To add to the mix, pickleball was enjoyed by more than a dozen new and seasoned players. To everyone’s delight, Bruno, a much sought after pickleball pro, was on hand to provide pointers and a little bit of competition.
 
The opening reception on Wednesday evening provided the opportunity to meet up with colleagues, vendors and get the first peek at the annual ICBC High School Scholarship auction.

The annual meeting started Thursday with the announcement of ICBC's 2023-24 officer slate. Congratulations to:
  • Randy Younger, President and CEO, First National Bank of Hugo, ICBC Chairman

Rebeca Romero Rainey, President and CEO, ICBA, brought the annual meeting to a close with an industry update and an ICBA brief. 

Two general sessions rounded out the morning: Josh Davies, Aztec Software, brought down the house with his Back to the Future: Building on the Past for Future Success. Everyone enjoys a good book, and Christian Otteson, Otteson Shapiro and Adam Keefer, Piper Sandler, provided an engaging A Few New Pages for the Community Bank Playbook.

During lunch we recognized our four Graduate School of Banking at Colorado scholarship recipients:

Thursday evening was full of glitz, glam, and fun! The black tie optional event didn't disappoint and attendees were equally comfortable in diamonds and denim. Thank you to all the donors and bidders who made this year’s ICBC High School Scholarship auction a great success. A shoutout to the amazing committee members who pulled everything together. A champagne toast in honor of ICBC's past presidents and their service started out the festivities. Song Blast kept the evening going with their harmonizing vocals and audience participation. Truly a golden jubilee.

Friday - WOW! We were honored to hear compelling keynote presentations from the Honorable Michelle "Miki" Bowman, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System and Rebecca Romero Rainey, President and CEO of the Independent Community Bankers of America.
