2017 opens as a very special year for MIB. The Montana Independent Bankers Association was founded in 1967, which means 2017 is our 50th anniversary! We are excited to celebrate this landmark year with the introduction of several major benefits and programs.
We will also celebrate 50 years of serving Montana’s community banks at our convention in Helena this July. ICBA President & CEO Cam Fine will be gracing us with his presence, and we will offering several opportunities for you to mix and mingle with him during our convention events, including a VIP invitation-only dinner. This chance to hang out with community banking’s best advocate is a rare opportunity that you definitely will not want to miss. If you have yet to experience one of our conventions, whether or not you are a member of MIB, now is the year to do it. Mark your calendars for July 27-29, 2017 at the Great Northern hotel in Helena!
As we look forward to the future, we also look back and celebrate our past. If you have any photos, stories, or accounts of MIB’s early years, we would love you to share these with us. Not many of that founding generation are left, and we wish to acknowledge the incredible work they accomplished. Please send any photos, stories, etc. to Laura Welker. We would be happy to publish them.
