Speak For WIB

WIB invites its members to submit speaking proposals to be considered for any of its engagement opportunities offered throughout the year. From conferences to workshops, share important professional experience, demonstrated leadership, industry innovation, and subject matter expertise to an audience of like-minded professionals.

Our continued mission at Western Independent Bankers is to inform, educate, and connect bankers at all levels within the industry. With a focus on relevancy of topic and building organizational strength from the inside out, we would like to announce that the Call for Speakers for WIB's 2018 Emerging Leaders Conference is now open.


The Emerging Leaders Conference represents the essence of WIB's initiative to strengthen the community bank executives of tomorrow by supporting them today through education and collaboration. In 2018, Emerging Leaders Conference will be held May 2-4 at Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, in Anaheim, CA.


It is the firsthand knowledge of experienced professionals that continues to redefine community banking as well as the leaders who populate the industry. WIB invites its members to share their expertise by submitting a proposal to speak at this important annual event.


WIB welcomes the opportunity to showcase the aptitude of its associate and community bank members. Submit your proposal today!

All proposals must be submitted before January 5, 2018 for consideration.

Thank you for helping develop WIB's 2018 educational programming. Please note that WIB receives a high volume of submissions; therefore, a fully completed proposal is appreciated and proposals not accepted may be considered for other engagements. Product pitches will not be considered. If you have questions or would like additional information, please contact

As a result of an exciting merger finalized on January 1, 2018, the Western Bankers Association (WBA) is now the primary association operating two divisions: California Bankers Association (CBA) and Western Independent Bankers (WIB). CBA will oversee all California and federal legislative and regulatory advocacy efforts, while WIB will oversee all conferences and professional development programs. Members of the respective associations will now be members of WBA.
