State Bankers Prepare for 101st Annual Convention


Potts, Gregory, THE JOURNAL RECORD


The Oklahoma Bankers Association will hold its 101st annual convention May 13-15 at the Marriott Hotel. The event will offer a mix of association business, educational programs and social events. The convention's theme is "A New Century: Serving Bankers Serving Oklahoma."

Members who attend the convention will have the opportunity to vote on changes to the association's bylaws. The changes would increase the terms of OBA board directors from two to three years and also increase the number of bankers representing each OBA membership group from two to three. A new board officer position of "first vice chair" also would be created.

The event will feature the annual awards luncheon, hosted by UMB Bank. Social events will include the opening reception hosted by Bank One Oklahoma; a reception hosted by Anadarko Bank & Trust in honor of new OBA Chairman William R. "Randy" Thomas, who takes his post during the convention; and a Hawaiian theme party hoted by NationsBank. Six workshops are scheduled for the convention's second day, covering: risk management for community banks, current trends in executive compensation, legal ramifications of the Year 2000 problem, the bank merger and acquisition climate in Oklahoma, maintaining customer confidence as it relates to the Year 2000 problem, and Internet for CEOs. The convention will feature special guest speaker Hjalma Johnson, first vice president of the American Bankers Association and chairman of two Florida banks. Johnson also spoke at last year's OBA convention. The convention also includes the annual golf tournament set for SilverHorn Golf Club.
