The 2017 BHCA Spring Seminar
"New Era; New Opportunities"

May 1-2, 2017
  New Location! Hyatt Regency Bloomington

It’s a new era. Interest rates, political leadership, regulatory pressures, tax environment and the economy are all changing as we usher in 2017. That means new opportunities, and the BHCA Spring Seminar is designed to help you make the most of them.

Our seminar features education you simply can’t get anywhere else, conveniently packaged for bank owners, directors and senior managers into a two-day format.

Mike Paton will describe the Entrepreneurial Operating System, which successful leaders use to make the most of the opportunities in their organizations. This is a roll-up-your-sleeves, get-into-the-details, 90-minute session that will help you see organizational leadership in a whole new light. Paton has worked with numerous organizations, including banks – taking them from uncertain footing to mission clarity and operational efficiency. Owners, employees and customers all benefit as a result.

In addition, we will take a deep dive into family-owned bank issues with consultant Ann Kinkade. In addition to offering insights based on her experience working with family-owned businesses, she will moderate a panel of bankers working in family-owned institutions across the Upper Midwest.

We will also get an update on ESOPs – should you start one at your bank? ESOPs have been around a long time but many bankers are expressing new interest in this proven employee retention tool.

And we will conclude the Spring Seminar with a primer on blockchain. Our luncheon speaker, Dan Simmonds of Deloitte, will tell you everything you’ve always wanted to know but were afraid to ask! Blockchain is much more than a fad, with many experts saying it will change the way we all do our banking in the future.

Plus, we have breakout sessions on ADA-compliant web sites, board governance, how to make the most of your holding company, and cybersecurity solutions.

Rob Quillen, our after-dinner speaker, will share his life-changing 9/11 experience in an inspirational presentation.

The seminar takes place at the brand new Hyatt Regency Bloomington-Minneapolis located by the Mall of America and MSP airport. 

Make the most of your two-day experience by joining us for dinner and a show May 2 at the Chanhassen Dinner Theatres to see “Grease,” always a crowd-pleaser.

With generous sponsorship, we have priced the seminar to make it attractive for bank owners, directors and senior managers so bring colleagues and associates. And as always, we have special discount pricing for outside directors. So don’t delay; register online today!
